The International Congress for School Effectiveness and Improvement (ICSEI)

Dublin, Ireland from January 9-12, 2024


The International Congress for School Effectiveness and Improvement (ICSEI) Congress will be hosted by Trinity College Dublin and Marino Institute of Education in Dublin, Ireland from 9th – 12th January 2024. ESAI members are invited to share their insights under the ICSEI 2024 theme of ‘Quality Professional Education for Enhanced School Effectiveness and Improvement‘.

The congress theme recognises and celebrates the complementarity and synergy between initial teacher education and continuing professional development for teachers and school leaders. High quality teaching and learning is supported in many ways, including induction of newly qualified teachers, mentoring and coaching, professional learning networks, data teams, school-university partnerships, knowledge mobilization, collaborative school improvement planning, and evidence informed policy that respects and promotes teacher professionalism. Many stakeholders are involved in providing cumulative impact through quality professional education. These include, but are not limited to, education scholars, academic and applied researchers, practising teachers, school staff and school leaders, professional development providers, and policy makers.

Over 500 delegates from around the world are expected to attend to discuss topics of mutual interest relating to issues of effectiveness, improvement and leadership in education. Amongst the variables associated with school effectiveness and improvement, the role of teachers and school leaders in supporting and promoting student learning is well established. And there is a growing body of evidence demonstrating the impact of research/policy/practice collaboration and partnerships on education systems around the world.
