Greetings from UNESCO Bangkok!
This year's World Teachers' Day (5 October) will commemorate the 20th anniversary of the 1997 UNESCO Recommendation concerning the Status of Higher-Education Training Personnel. To celebrate this landmark anniversary and in keeping with this year's theme, "Teaching in Freedom, Empowering Teachers", we want to hear from you about the progress made and challenges still facing teaching personnel in higher education, and also spark a conversation around how to empower teachers by completing a short survey :
We will feature highlights from the survey on social media on 5 October and later on, so please follow us on Twitter at @UNESCO_AsiaPac and Facebook at Facebook.com/UNESCOBKK.
If you have any questions about the survey, please email: Educational Innovation and Skills Development, UNESCO Bangkok: email@example.com. Thank you!
P.S. We are thrilled to share our synthesis report and case studies on the 1997 Recommendation: Recalibrating Careers in Academia (UNESCO, 2017). E-copies are online, and please feel free to download!
