TEPE 2010 Conference opens

Professor Stefan Hopmann opened the TEPE 2010 Conference with a stimulating Key Note lecture on “Teacher Education Policy in Times of Transition”.  Stefan outlined current proposals for reform of teacher education in Austria and the thinking behind these. Of particular interest is the proposal to link induction with Masters level qualifications. Also it was interesting to note his comments about the likelihood of increasing specialisation of provision and the need for institutions to work to their strengths. He described this model as multi-site teacher education.
