TEPE Conference 2017 Call for Papers

December 13, 2016

TEACHER EDUCATION POLICY IN EUROPE

The theme of the 2017 TEPE conference: ‘Education for All: Issues for Teacher Education’ examines the extent to which the education system can serve the needs of a diverse range of learners and the role of teacher education in the pursuit of this goal. This conference will provide opportunities for teacher educators, academic researchers, educators and policy makers to interrogate the notion of ‘Education for All’ and in particular, the key role of teacher education and teacher educators therein.

Conference Dates: 18-20 May 2017

The following sub-themes have been established to explore this general theme:

Theme 1. Initial teacher education for all: attracting, supporting and preparing a diverse student teacher population

Theme 2. Equality and Access: Who is the education system really serving?

Theme 3. Theory, policy and practice in teacher education: Global and European perspectives on education for all.

Conference Location:

This year the annual conference comes to Ireland and to Mary Immaculate College, Limerick. Founded in 1898, Mary Immaculate College (MIC) is the oldest third level institution in Limerick City. With a student population of approx. 5000, the College offers a wide range of programmes in Education and the Liberal Arts at both undergraduate and postgraduate level and provides initial teacher education at Bachelors and master’s level for primary and secondary level teachers as well as teachers working in further / adult education.
