A three part workshop for new Teacher Educators at the 10th TEAN Conference 9th and 10th May 2019, Aston Conference Centre, Birmingham

The highly successful ‘Becoming a Teacher Education’ workshops have been held annually since 2007 and have provided an element of academic induction for more than 500 colleagues who are in their first year or two of appointment to new roles as Teacher Educators based in higher education, colleges and schools.

The workshops consist of three linked sessions that will address the challenges of professional identity, workplace context, pedagogy, and research activity for Teacher Educators.

They are designed for all those who are relatively new to teacher education work (for example up to three years in the role), whether based in schools, colleges or in higher education. The workshops provide a challenging perspective on the pedagogy of teacher education and on the place of scholarship and research in the work of different teacher educator roles. It aims to provide a supportive environment for sharing experiences and for considering useful strategies and resources for building practice and identity as a teacher educator.

REGISTRATION IS VIA THE CONFERENCE REGISTRATION

STeP JOURNAL

The STeP journal is a valuable resource for students and much used by tutors as witnessed in the Professional Learning about Teacher Education through TEAN page on the TEAN website. The journal is full of fantastic papers by perceptive and highly motivated students whose writing is of a high standard.

The Guidelines for the STeP Journal (Student Teacher Perspectives Journal) have been updated with full details of how to submit for both tutors and students. These must be journal articles so look at the instructions with care. As there is only one issue a year – in July – the number of papers that can be accepted is limited and when full the invitation for 2019 will close.
