Four questions are asked to the participants to deepen the themes of professional development and working conditions

1. How to improve working conditions and living standards of teachers despite crisis' financial constraints? 2. How working conditions can influence teaching quality?3. How the institutions (schools and universities) as a place of training contribute to the professional development of teachers in your country?4. How educational innovations such as the integration of information and communication technology (ICT) can become an asset in teaching, what factors can motivate teachers to integrate them in their practice?
