The AARE Teacher Education and Research Innovation SIG warmly invites AARE members to the upcoming virtual symposium: ‘Teacher Education: Preparing Teachers for a Changing World.’ The symposium will be held:
Friday, 28th October 2022
10.00am - 1:00pm AEDT or 11:00am- 2:00pm AEST
COVID-19, geopolitical tensions, climate change and economic instability are just some of the challenges facing today’s world. These global challenges, alongside emerging and continuing local problems and issues, impact students, teachers, and their school communities. This symposium aims to bring together teacher educators and teacher education researchers to consider the implications of a changing world for teacher education research and practice.
The symposium will feature keynote presentations from Emeritus Professor Ann Farrell and Professor Karen Martin, who will, respectively, speak about their research on student wellbeing and trauma-informed practice in education.
In addition, AARE members are invited to participate in the symposium by presenting a 20-minute presentation (15 minutes for speaking, 5 minutes for questions) on a topic related to the symposium theme. We invite you to share examples of your research and practice and/or your wonderings about teacher education in a changing world.
To submit a short abstract (200 words) for presentation at the symposium, please complete this form by Friday, 16th September 2022.
We will provide further details closer to the event.
Looking forward to meeting you at the symposium.
