The Work of Teacher Education Dissemination Seminar

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in workshop, seminar, course


The Work of Teacher Education research began in 2009 with an analysis of 111 job advertisements and job descriptions for teacher educator positions from 42 English universities, along with interviews with 8 heads of advertising HEI Education departments. In 2010, the second phase, supported by ESCalate (the Education subject centre of the Higher Education Academy), investigated the practical activities and material conditions of a sample of 13 HEI-based teacher educators in England and Scotland. Participating teacher educators were observed, interviewed and completed work diaries at two different points in the year-long study. A dissemination seminar will be held on June 8th at the University of Oxford. The purpose of the seminar will be to report on the findings and to promote discussion of their relevance and what the findings might mean for the practices of HEI-based teacher education, now and in the future.
