World Teachers’ Day is 5 October, 2017
World Teachers’ Day has been held annually since 1994 and commemorates the anniversary of the signing of the 1966 UNESCO/ILO Recommendation concerning teachers’ rights and responsibilities on a global scale.
World Teachers’ Day 2017 will be celebrated under the theme “Teaching in Freedom, Empowering Teachers”, with a special focus on the status of higher-education teachers, who are often overlooked in discussions concerning the status of teachers.
Prompt: Reflect on a teacher or the status of teachers
What thoughts come to mind when you think of World Teachers’ Day? Here are some ideas:
- Share a story of a teacher who made an impact on you.
- Tell us about your experience with higher education and the teaching staff you encountered.
- Why did you become a teacher?
- If you had total freedom and unlimited resources, how would you celebrate World Teachers’ Day at your workplace?
