The Role of Education Faculties in Promoting High Quality Education
The UN Sustainable Development Goals for 2030 express a universal commitment towards sustainable development that includes various global goals to improve quality education, good health and well-being, gender equality, economic growth, climate action, life on land and below water, clean water and clean energy, innovation, the eradication of poverty and hunger, the reduction of inequality as well as peace, justice and strong institutions. The 17th sustainable development goal (SDG) presents the goal of ‘partnerships for the goals.
This paper seeks to reflect the views of the recently established Global Network of Deans of Education (GNDE) as an exemplar for crafting new partnerships to support the attainment of SDG4 that focuses on Quality Education. The notion of ‘coherence’ is utilized as a conceptual marker to present the emerging network. Four drivers, i.e. focus, collaboration, learning, accountability, are applied to illuminate the potential of a global education deans’ network to address educational challenges and optimize opportunities to support learning.
