Intellectual Base of Teacher Education: UCET Working Group
Chair: Trevor Mutton (University of Oxford)
With the development of the next UCET Strategy in mind (which will cover the period 2020-2025) the working group has been set up in order to focus on how UCET might identify and promote the intellectual base of teacher education, including in particular the role of teacher education pedagogy and research. The group meets six times a year (first meeting in January 2019) and will produce regular reports for UCET members, as well as occasional discussion papers.
Trevor Mutton is an Associate Professor at the Department of Education (Oxford University) and is Director of Professional Programmes.
He teaches on the Modern Languages PGCE programme and also teaches and supervises on the part-time MSc in Learning and Teaching, as well as supervising doctoral students whose research focuses on aspects of teacher education and teachers’ professional learning. He has worked at the Department of Education since 1997, having previously been Head of Modern Languages at one of the Department’s partnership schools. His principal research interests are in the fields of initial teacher education, teacher education policy and teachers’ continued professional learning.
