Venue University of Cumbria, Lancaster Campus
Organised by ESCalate

Are you within your first two years of working as a lecturer in teacher education? Have you recently moved into Higher Education from a practitioner role, such as teacher, FE lecturer, consultant or adviser?

Are you interested in finding out more about your own learning and professional development as a lecturer?

If so, then this practical workshop, designed to help you focus on your professional development during the first few years in a Higher Education role is for you.

The workshop will focus on some of the key issues involved in starting work as a lecturer in Higher Education. 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, available at, which were collaboratively developed with contributions from many teacher educators in a wide range of UK higher education contexts.

The workshop is facilitated by one or more of 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.
