Pedagogy, Politics and Teacher Education: An International Conference in London
Registration now open!
Registration is now open for this international conference at King’s College London that will bring together researchers to engage in an extended dialogue about pedagogy, politics and teacher education. The conference will address questions such as:
1. What can we learn from the past and from other contexts about the relationships between teacher education, the teaching profession and society? As schools become better at both teacher development and research literacy, what is the contribution of the universities?
2. What are the differences between teacher education programmes founded on a commitment to social mobility and programmes founded on commitments to social justice and equity? How can we prepare teachers in ways that disrupt the reproduction of educational inequities?
3. What does the concept of curriculum mean in teacher education and what is the place of disciplinary knowledges in learning to teach? And what is the role of the state in determining the curriculum of teacher education?
4. How do we foster change in teacher education and what are the antecedents and necessary conditions for change? What does innovation in teacher education look like that doesn’t only require fidelity to pre-determined standards, however they have been developed?
