    SYDNEY JULY 2023

    ‘Embracing Partnerships: Leading the Future of Teaching, Learning and Research’ 

    ATEA’s 2023 conference will be hosted by the Australian Catholic University, North Sydney Campus,

    from Wednesday 12th July 2023 to Friday 14th July 2023. 

    The 2023 conference marks the return to face-to-face peer engagement, after a lengthy hiatus!

    Teacher Education increasingly relies on collaborative partnerships to transform innovative teaching, learning, professional practice and research. This conference theme recognises the broad range of partnerships across multiple contexts that contribute to innovative teaching, learning, professional practice and research activities in preparing and educating teachers.

    The conference discussions will focus on the multiplicity of innovative collaborative partnerships across teacher education contexts, in particular those within university, educational system, school, community, government, and industry spaces, and the interweaving of these perspectives.

    We invite abstracts relating to the conference theme and sub-themes of: 

    Policy, research and practice around partnerships, including challenges/tensions and successes when ‘embracing partnerships’; 

    • Exploration of innovative partnership models and case studies, including local, national and international; 
    • Partnerships into the future: impact, flexibility and sustainability
    • Theorisation of partnerships in the field of teacher education
    • Re/conceptualisation of teacher educator work that showcases the multiple forms of partnerships that can contribute to teaching, learning, professional practice and research

      In the spirit of the theme of partnerships, ATEA would like to recognise the importance of school-based teacher educators in partnerships. The final day of the conference, Friday 14th July,  will feature a special one-day Teacher Stream. 

      The Friday school-based teacher education stream provides space for those in schools to discuss the partnership activities that happen in schools, and contribute to the education of pre-service and in-service teachers. 

      We invite those engaged in the education of pre-service and in-service teachers in schools to submit an abstract to share these activities and the impact they have on their teachers and the teaching profession. 

      Also included is a lunch-time book launch of the Springer book, Work-Integrated Learning Case Studies in Teacher Education: Epistemic Reflexivity, which highlights university and school/system partnership work within NSW schools. 

      The day concludes with an interactive panel event around the theme “Creating authentic nexus between universities, schools and systems (and/or industry)”. 

      The panel comprises university, pre-service teacher, school and system voices who will discuss key ideas related to authentic partnerships. Opportunities for small group discussions will follow and be led by panel members and experts in the field focusing on key issues/topics.  Groups will be encouraged to have a variety of voices from the various educational contexts to enable deep and rich discussion.

      Register for Friday only or join us for our three-day conference*

      NB/ *Full conference registration automatically includes this day.
