|Date Published||December 2006|
This booklet draws together a range of papers which were presented in workshops and symposia throughout the conference and will be of interest to all staff in schools and Higher Education Institutions concerned with Initial Teacher Education. These papers draw together a wealth of inspiration for teacher educators from research and scholarly activity by colleagues in the sector. There are papers on the successful use of technology, ranging from blended learning as an enhancement to learning and reflection to the value of Virtual Learning Environments, WebCT, Interactive Whiteboards and video. Partnerships are featured in a variety of forms; partnership with schools, with Local Authorities and in connection with creativity. And finally the ‘Every Child Matters’ agenda is discussed from the point of view of setting up successful structures to address this important issue.
