The theme of the forum is as follows: "Teacher Motivation: What do we know and what do we need to achieve the Education 2030 Agenda?" The aim is to take stock of what research says about teacher motivation, what governments do to attract and retain good teachers (for all levels and types of education), what teachers want/need to be motivated, and in turns motivate learners for effective learning outcomes.
Over 300 participants from all regions, including policymakers, practitioners, researchers and development partners will address the above through four sub-themes and through keynote speeches, panel presentations, and discussions in plenary and group sessions. The group discussions will be organized around the following four sub-themes with the use of existing research findings, available data and examples of good practice in different contexts:
- Motivation and Teacher Education
- Teacher Motivation and Teachers' Working Conditions
- Education Governance and Teacher Motivation
- Teachers and Learners Profiles and Teacher Motivation
