The Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN) has announced the date for its third online conference for registered teachers in Nigeria.
The Registrar and Chief Executive Officer of TRCN, Professor Josiah Ajiboye, who made this known in a statement on Thursday in Abuja, said the conference has been scheduled for August 30 to 31.
According to the statement, the conference has the support of the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) and some other agencies under the Federal Ministry of Education.
He said the programme, themed “Promoting Community of Practice Among Nigerian Teachers for Effective Service Delivery,” is aimed at enhancing teachers’ capacity.
According to the statement: “This initiative recognises the need to foster collaboration, knowledge sharing, and professional growth among educators, ultimately leading to improved teaching practices and student outcomes.
“This has become apparent because of the need to leverage knowledge sharing from different quarters. Teachers play a vital role in shaping the educational landscape in any economy. However, many educators face challenges in accessing continuous professional development and opportunities for collaboration.
“This conference aims to address these challenges by creating a platform for teachers to engage in a community of practice where they can exchange ideas, share experiences, and lessons learned to enhance their job performance.”
