The first 25 minutes cover principles, the second 25 minutes discusses two concrete examples of abstracts, the third section 30 minutes is contribution by participating teacher educators focused on their scholarly work and abstract writing.

We have provocative, forward-looking keynotes from Professor Hazel Bryan, Dean of the School of Education and Professional Development at the University of Huddersfield, and Sameena Choudhry, Senior Learning Standards and Effectiveness Officer at Doncaster Council, co-founder of #WomenEd, and consultant in Equitable Education. There will be a wide choice of cutting-edge presentations on research and evaluation of innovative practice in teacher education and development.

In calling for contributions for TEAN Conference 2023, we welcome a wide range of topics within and beyond the general themes of:

Working for social justice through teaching and teacher education.

Supporting the professional learning and career development of teacher educators.

Showcasing and developing powerful, innovative pedagogies for teacher education.

Showcasing and developing high quality research in teacher education.

Developing collaborative knowledge exchange across teacher education partnerships.

Building strong collective leadership in teacher education.

Connecting and collaborating with other teacher education networks.

In addition, this year we particularly welcome presentations related to the theme of curriculum. This theme focuses on theory, research, policy, and practice around both the teacher education curriculum and school curriculum. The theme encourages debate on the purposes of education and critical consideration of a ‘knowledge-rich’ curriculum, the contested concept of ‘powerful knowledge’, teacher knowledge, decolonising the curriculum, and provision for teaching transdisciplinary big societal issues including climate change, poverty and equity within diverse societies.

The deadline for proposal submissions is the 6th January 2023. Please read the submission guidelines carefully before submitting your proposal online here.
