Global Learning Equity Network (GLEN): Pathways of Individual Hong Kong Teachers at the Education University of Hong Kong (EdUHK)

This project was a part of the Global Learning Equity Network (GLEN) which aimed to reinvent teacher education in the field of learning and role teachers play in addressing issues of learning equity and student success. The first phrase focused on understanding the pathways to becoming professional teachers. We developed a document which highlighted the distinctive aspects of the programmes in nurturing future teachers. The issue of ‘branding’ and the distinctive attributes and capabilities that we tried to instill in our graduates were deliberated. Then, a mapping exercise about the various policy contexts and language issues was conducted to describe the stages between initial teacher education and qualified teacher status at the Education University of Hong Kong (EdUHK). We also conducted individual interviews with course participants from various programmes to provide a holistic understanding of the professional development pathways of individual pre-service and in-service teachers at the EdUHK. The findings of the pathways for professional development were helpful for deepening our understanding of the way in which the central theme of learning equity was pertained to.
