Responding to the TEEP Report: event recording now available


Strong Beginnings, the Report of the Teacher Education Expert Panel was released in July 2023 and has attracted considerable public attention and debate among education researchers and those involved in initial teacher education.

AARE members have been prominent contributors to these discussions.    

AARE and ATEA held a joint online forum on Tuesday 1st August, featuring five distinguished academics responding to the highly anticipated TEEP Report.

The event brought together leading experts holding diverse roles and perspectives to offer their insights and analysis on the TEEP Report's findings and recommendations.  The panelists were: Professor Michele Simons (Western Sydney University); Professor Donna Pendergast (Griffith University); Professor Jenny Gore (University of Newcastle); Professor Deb Hayes (University of Sydney); and Professor Viv Ellis (Monash University).

We asked the panel to comment on three things:

  1. General thoughts about the TEEP report
  2. Changes in language, eg practical experience, provider
  3. Implications for universities and ITE
