    Educating for the Future

    Halden, Norway, 22-25 August 2013

    The title can include many perspectives as education is an investment in the future.

    We therefore have to ask what future, or more precisely, what do we expect for the future? What do we want the future to be?

    To answer those questions we have concentrated on three main tasks:

    What do we think are the most severe challenges facing humans and humankind and what consequences should it have for teaching and teacher education?

    What can we expect of technological development and what effects will it have on the role of teachers and students and of how we organize education in the future?

    How do we educate teachers to meet a rapidly changing world? How to educate for the unexpected?
