Who We Are


What is ITEN?

The Inter-American Teacher Education Network (ITEN) is an initiative of the Organization of American States (OAS) that works with Ministries of Education or other governmental teacher education institutions of OAS Member States and classroom teachers to advance the teaching profession in the Western hemisphere.

In early 2019, ITEN launched Phase 4 of its work. Based on the needs of the OAS Member States, and in alignment with the Inter-American Education Agenda, ITEN promotes collaborative work to solve problems of policy and practice in relation to teacher education in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) at the early childhood and upper secondary levels.

Special attention is afforded to promote policies and practices that encourage equity for the STEM education of girls, women, and other underrepresented groups.

ITEN offers a networked community of educational leaders in the Americas. it provides an annual cycle of engagement opportunities and competitive funds to participating Ministries of Education.
