Call for Abstracts

3rd and final Call for Abstracts: Now open 

Closing date: 10 July 2021


DETA conferences have now become a unique and regular biennial event on the African academic calendar, offering a platform for practitioners and researchers in teacher education to collectively reflect on how educational policies, while guided by local contexts, can be attuned to achieving a shared vision for the continent. It also focuses on how practices can be enhanced by learning from the experiences of others; and on how theories and models borrowed from the North can be challenged by more culturally sensitive perspectives developed from empirical data produced in a diversity of African contexts.

Abstract submission guidelines

  • Abstracts should be a maximum of 250 words (excluding title and author information).
  • Include a theoretical or a conceptual framework (as applicable), research question(s), methodology, findings and conclusion.
  • Do not include references.
  • The organising committee will do document formatting – thus please ensure that all the information requested in the online abstract submission form is completed correctly.
