Teacher Education In and For Uncertain Times
The 2018 ATEA and TEFANZ Conference will be held from 4-6 July in Melbourne, Australia, at La Trobe University’s City Campus. Teacher education internationally faces uncertain times. The provision of teacher education is increasingly diversified across public and private interests, and reviews of teacher education provision in several countries have continued to question its efficacy and impact. The pre-service teachers and in-service teachers with whom teacher educators collaborate face uncertain times.
The theme of 2018 ATEA and TEFANZ Conference, “Teacher Education In and For Uncertain Times” engages with the role of initial and continuing teacher education in uncertain times. Presentations will report the work of teacher education researchers who are engaging with how teacher education can prepare teachers committed to counter-oppressive curriculum and pedagogy, and reflects the critical role of teacher educators as public academics.
