The 2nd East African Teacher Education Symposium will be held at Makerere University, Wednesday, November 9 through Friday, November 11, 2022. The symposium welcomes proposals that investigate topics of relevance for East African Teacher Education under the symposium theme "The pandemic´s effect on Ugandan and East African education". The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Closing of schools on different levels
  • The pandemic and our approaches to teaching
  • Teacher-student ratio in schools 
  • The role of blended learning before, during, and after the pandemic
  • Education and empowerment
  • The CABUTE areas of subject specialization: English, General Education, Mathematics, Music Education, and University Pedagogy.

Presentations can either be given live on campus or online. Online presenters will be asked to make and send a recording of their presentation in advance so that the technical quality of their presentation is not reduced by streaming and internet capacity. Still, every online presentation will be moderated live.



​We invite proposals on any topic relevant to the conference theme. Submissions are limited to one abstract per person. Each talk selected for presentation will be allotted 20 minutes followed by 10 minutes of discussion. Abstracts have to be written in English and should not exceed 350 words excluding the reference list. Proposals should include the title of the talk, name of author and affiliation, email address, a short biography (max 100 words), and up to five keywords. Please send your submission (including attachments) here.

The submission deadline is September 1, 2022.
