In particular, it will explore work contexts, managing workloads, the pedagogies of teacher education, and continuing professional development as an academic, including building up scholarship and a research profile.The workshop engages with and builds on the ESCalate guidelines for the induction of new teacher educators (Boyd, Harris & Murray, 2007), which were collaboratively developed with contributions from many teacher educators in a wide range of UK higher education contexts.

The workshop is facilitated by the authors of the guidelines document who are all teacher educators and involved in research and development initiatives focusing on the induction and learning of new teacher educators.
