The IFNTF is a growing network of the “world’s finest teachers”. The Federation was launched on September 8 this year, and David Boud represented us at both the launch and the subsequent meeting. The IFNTF website (http://www.ifntf.org/ ) is brand new and very sparse, but the organisers have plans to feature national networks and organisations such as the ALTF as well as individual members. This should start to happen fairly soon.
