The chamber of universities of teacher education is composed of the rectors of universities of teacher education and the heads of institutions of teacher training. It coordinates and supports the further development of teacher training in the areas of instruction, research, continuing education and services. It represents the interests of universities of teacher education and the other institutions of teacher training in the context of swissuniversities and vis-à-vis political stakeholders and the public. To carry out its diverse duties, the chamber of universities of teacher education has a network of commissions, projects and working groups. In order to be able to answer the strategic questions related to teacher training across the different types of institutions of higher education, swissuniversities also conduct a teacher training delegation that will maintain contact with EDK.
