    The constant social changes we are witnessing require rapid, professional and high-quality reflections in the field of education. Lifelong development of teacher education is necessary from the point of view of society’s development, since we need pedagogical staff who will be able to encourage learning and development of the competences needed to face the challenges of the new reality and the future.

    The Faculty of Education at the University of Maribor has been training pedagogical staff (teachers and educators) for current and future challenges in the field of education for 60 years. We are aware that in order to stimulate optimal progress in educating pedagogical staff, it is important to envisage the wider educational space and to hear the people who work in it. Therefore, we invite you to an international scholarly conference, titled "Perspectives on Teacher Education and Development", which will take place on September 30th and October 1st, 2021 at the Faculty of Education in Maribor.

    We would like this international scholarly event to contribute to a critical and open exchange of expert opinions and thus offer research-based reflections on how to promote lifelong learning and the development of the competences needed to meet the challenges of the present and future by improving and promoting pedagogical staff education.
