One of the principles of KIX LAC is responding to countries´needs and demands. On this ground,
teacher professional development has been one of the topics that representatives have defined as a

approach the topic from different perspectives, including a conversation led by one of the
representatives aimed at analyzing the challenges from a practitioner's point of view, a webinar led
by academicians and a workshop for teachers´unions leaders. It is also preparing a policy brief which
digs into the topic in the region and a systematic review that will collect lessons and good practices in
the field that are relevant for KIX LAC countries. This International Conference has the goal of
discussing findings and mobilizing evidence with a broader public.
