Resources from Teacher Educators Workshop: Working with Diverse Groups of Learners in the Digital Age

Description Resources from the event Teacher Educators Workshop: Working with Diverse Groups of Learners in the Digital Age, 28th February 2011. Organised by ESCalate in partnership with UEL.

On Monday 28th February 2011 teacher educators from the Cass School of Education and Communities, University of East London (UEL), joined by colleagues from Hull, Wolverhampton, Canterbury, Middlesex and Anglia Ruskin took part in an ESCalate teacher education event, the first in a series of national events organised as a response to the call for case studies from this project. The workshop brought together teacher educators from primary, secondary and post-compulsory training phases to explore the implications and benefits of social media, Web2.0 tools and e-portfolios in shaping the future of teacher learning and training. The day was opened by Ann Slater and Professor Jean Murray, both UEL, and explored the nature of change in teacher education in the light of learner diversity and the growth of new social media tools for pedagogy.
