Following a call for proposals in late 2019, ESAI is delighted to support five Special Interest Groups (SIGs). These SIGs have been established with a view to supporting current and future practitioners and researchers of education in Ireland. These SIGs will have a two-year lifetime from January 2020 to January 2022 (now extended to 28 April 2022) and have received funding from ESAI to support their activities during this time. The SIGs are listed below in alphabetical order – click on the SIG to find out more about upcoming events and how to get involved.

Inclusive Education

Professional Development in Higher Education Teaching (PD-HET)

Teacher Education: Critical Pedagogy and Praxis for Social Justice

The SIGs gave an update of their progress to date at ESAI 2021 Conference on March 25/26 2021
