The previous editions focused respectively on the university pedagogy of teacher training (March 2017, Sfax), the governance and quality of education systems (March 2019, Hammamet), and the learner at the heart of the education system (November 2022, Hammamet). The large presence of researchers, doctoral students, and teachers has prompted continued efforts to improve the quality of education. Following on from the first three editions of the Forum, the fourth edition is particularly interested in one of the key players in education systems, the teacher, who is called upon to support all learners in their learning journeys. Adequate training of teachers, about the exercise of a complex role with major repercussions on the future of society, is essential. It seems judicious and useful to reflect on the challenges of initial and continuing teacher training, professionalizing paths, professional integration, and the conditions of exercise of teaching work. This fourth edition also emphasizes governance issues and their impact on educational success and, in the current situation, on the recruitment of qualified personnel to enter the field of education. These two objects of interest are part of the context of the professionalization of the education professions and their evolution over the course of political, socio-economic, and institutional changes.

Bringing together researchers, decision-makers, and citizens, the fourth edition of the Forum is part of a comparative perspective and will give rise to discussions leading to the emergence of strategies that are at the service of inclusive education and that consider the dynamic evolution of societies. It will provide an opportunity to establish collaborations between researchers and teachers from different backgrounds.

This Forum is structured along six Tracks. Each of them will be the subject of a collective reflection which will lead to the formulation of courses of action which it will be recommended to follow up after the Forum.;
