Australia Teacher Education Association (ATEA) Conference 2016

Teacher Education: Innovation, Interventions and Impact

Teacher education is, more than at any other time in our history, in a key public position in the Australian context. With this intense gaze comes new questions and questioning of our work, our research and our practices. This is an excellent time for the Australian Teacher Education Association to capitalise on the attention by politicians and policy makers seeking solutions to the best ways we can prepare teachers for diverse communities.
