The objective of the International Content Portal in teacher education is to improve the flow of pedagogical knowledge and research on teacher education by helping researchers and teacher educators cope and keep abreast with the wealth of publications in the field.
The portal's uniqueness resides in the coordinated processes of collecting, filtering, processing and distributing relevant research and non-research papers on education and teacher education within one integrative clearinghouse
. In addition, portal users are invited to make use of the site's response system and share their knowledge and insights regarding the contents presented with other users.
The abstracts and reviews of the latest and newest papers and research studies published in the world's leading journals in the field of teacher education (such as Journal of Teacher Education and Teaching and Teacher Education) and major education conferences (such as EARLI and AERA) are collected in one database in the International Content Portal.
A survey of the material is conducted systematically and the selected items undergo processing and adaptation to a uniform online platform in accordance with defined categories and key words.
The MOFET Institute respects the authors' and researchers' copyrights and will provide links to complete papers only if the latter have been published on the Net or if explicit permission to publish them has been granted.
For full-text papers, readers are requested to avail themselves of academic libraries and online databases.
