IFNTF World Summit
The IFNTF World Summit offers an important opportunity for members to meet annually. The Summit includes presentations, workshops, keynote speakers and a range of networking and development activities. Students will have the opportunity to present at the Summit and all members are cordially invited to participate. The Summit is open to members in good standing of the International Federation of National Teaching Fellows.
The International Federation of National Teaching Fellows (IFNTF) will hold its first World Summit in Birmingham, UK at the Radisson Blu hotel and the event is sponsored by Ede and Ravenscroft. The theme of the Summit is “Defining Teaching Excellence within the Disciplines.” An international panel of educators from Canada, U.S., U.K., New Zealand, and Australia will address this important theme as part of our key projects agenda.
The Summit will include panel discussions and papers and break out focused task groups. A call for 25-minute papers on the theme of "Defining Teaching Excellence within the Disciplines" can be viewed here. The conference is open to all members of the IFNTF (membership can be purchased with conference registration, with a discount on the Summit fee for all IFNTF full members). The event is open to all NTFs. The IFNTF annual full membership fee for all NTFs is £50.00. Information on IFNTF membership application and payment will be confirmed soon.
The Summit registration will commence Thursday evening when we will have an opening reception. There will be two full days of Summit activities (Friday and Saturday) including a Summit dinner on the Friday evening.
