Responding to Change

Integration and collaboration

The recent White Paper 'The importance of Teaching - The Schools White Paper 2010' has suggested reform to teacher training in England. Just what does this mean for Higher Education Institutions in England? How should HEIs respond in uncertain times and go forward positively to the future? This seminar gives delegates an opportunity to debate the issues, to identify challenges and opportunities and to share ideas on ways forward. It is one of a series of seminars presented by TEAN and supported by ESCalate; there will be similar events in Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland, focussing on issues relevant to each individual country. Outcomes from all four events will be reported on the TEAN and the ESCalate websites.

Keynote speakers:

Andy Jones, MMU

Dr Samantha Twiselton, University of Cumbria

Who is it for?

The seminar will be of particular interest to all those involved in the planning of initial teacher education courses, in all phases (early years, primary and secondary). We welcome colleagues working in universities or schools.
