The recently established Centre for Commonwealth Education (CCE) provides faculty members and the faculty in general, both staff and students, with an important opportunity to collaborate with educators in Commonwealth countries to improve the quality of teaching, learning and leading, and thus also the life chances of many pupils, students and adults in far flung geographic locations dotted around the former Empire. This laudable and challenging ambition is focused primarily on Initial and Continuing Teacher Education, School Leadership, and Pedagogy, but how is sustainable development in these educational domains to be conceptualised, acted on and sustaining in ways that are culturally sensitive yet build capacity? The intention for this session is to outline the Centre’s remit, to indicate current initiatives, while situating these specifics within a wider intellectual conversation that is intent on creating space and opportunity to begin to construct an appropriate dialectic on sustainable development that is inclusive yet celebrates diversity.

Ciaran is particularly keen to hear from colleagues working in schools. This seminar represents another step in our ongoing journey for dialogue between schools and the faculty.

This talk is part of the Leadership for Learning: The Cambridge Network series.
