The Mico Universiy College announced on Wednesday that it will begin a series of public discussion fora with a view to engaging the nation in the development and implementation of education policy.

The first in the series, called The Mico Education Conversation Series, is set for this Wednesday, March 23, at the Enos Nuttal Lecture Theatre, on the Mico campus on Marescaux Road, starting at 6:00 pm.

The topic of discussion will be: ‘Migration of Teachers: Opportunities for game-changing strategies for teacher education’.

Mico says it is using the conversation series to deepen its contribution to the education sector by adding its voice to the national conversation, adding that the series will seek to identify leaders in education, locally, regionally and internationally, who can add value to the university college’s work to provide the education system with teachers who prepare people with world class competencies and certification.

“The Mico University College will be using this conversation series to engage the nation on dialogue that will contribute to education policy and initiatives towards the development of the country,” stated Professor Neville Ying, pro-chancellor of the university college.

Two additional conversations will take place later in the year and will cover themes such as crime and violence, education and economic growth.
