TEAN and the HEA working together for the future of teacher education

The TEAN conference is established as a significant event in the calendar for teacher educators and teacher education. Our third conference considers the theme of ‘Creating effective teachers’, a subject which lies at the heart of what we do and concerns policy makers, teachers, teacher educators, student teachers, and most importantly the children and young people in the present and future generations of the world.

What delegates said about the conference last year

‘TEAN gives a forum for friendly and supportive discussions.’

‘Great to be there - good atmosphere; speakers; papers - and general engagement!’

‘I thoroughly enjoyed the TEAN conference whilst at the same time found the ideas discussed challenging.’

‘The TEAN conference was a very useful day and a great success.’

Keynote Address

TEAN is delighted to welcome Dr Caroline Daly to give this year’s keynote. Dr Daly is a Senior Lecturer at the Institute Of Education, University of London, where for three years she was Assistant Director of the Centre for Excellence in Work-based Learning for Education Professionals. Having taught in secondary schools for eleven years, at the IOE she has worked extensively in both Initial Teacher Education and Continuing Professional Development (CPD), leading the development of partnership approaches to school-based masters provision. Her particular interest is in teacher agency and collaborative professional development which impacts on students, exploring opportunities for professional learning within the current CPD landscape. Her research background is in professional learning, e-learning and teacher education. She has published widely for both research and practitioner audiences, including articles in the Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, Journal of In-Service Education, E-Learning and Teaching in Higher Education. She is co-editor of New Designs for Teachers’ Professional Learning (Bedford Way Papers, 2007), which examined masters-level support for teachers in diverse UK contexts.

Who is the conference for?

The conference is aimed at all practitioners working in teacher education in the UK, and all other agencies with a professional interest in teacher education. The conference will also resonate with colleagues from the international sector and we welcome papers from an international perspective. Our focus is on schools, however, transferable knowledge from other sectors is most welcome at the conference.
