Description The purpose of this session is to explore how policies in faculties and schools of education around the world are trying to ‘close the gap’ between various groups in their particular contexts. Educational initiatives in various institutions like faculties and schools of education have long been criticized firstly for continuing to advantage those already advantaged and disadvantaging those who start school and university already behind; secondly for a rigid curriculum and instructional methods which don’t reflect state of the art of educational research. They do this by virtue of how programs are structured, students’ access to those programs, and the assumptions underpinning them. This session will provide an international perspective on five initiatives in very different contexts that are trying to address some of these long-standing gaps and inequities. Five board members of ICET from different continents will share their knowledge and critically discuss the phenomenon of “closing the gap”.
