If we were to reinvent teacher education with what we now know about the brain and how children learn, with a focus on equity, what would it look like? How can teacher educators prepare future teachers for increasingly diverse school populations and to foster the creativity so crucial for the innovation age?
Featuring Australian scholars and international speakers from Hong Kong, the United States, South Africa, Canada, the United Kingdom and New Zealand, this symposium will propose new frameworks for teacher education for a changing world. (See program link below for full list of speakers and topics).
Papers presented at the Symposium will form submissions to be considered for publication in a special issue of the Peabody Journal of Education on reframing teacher education.
This symposium is supported by the University of Newcastle's Faculty of Education and Arts, the School of Education and the Centre of Excellence for Equity in Higher Education as part of the launch of the Global Learning Equity Network.
