Practical information

  • Conference theme

    The 41st Annual ATEE Conference focuses on the important task of teacher education to educate the best teachers, teachers who are able to stimulate the cognitive and personal development of pupils, teachers who are innovative and able to develop themselves continuously. What this means for teacher education is the central focus of this conference.

    The conference theme will be dealt with in three subthemes:

    1. Innovation

    Teacher educators should be innovative professionals using or conducting research in order to continuously improve education. How can teacher (educator) research support the innovation of (teacher) education?

    2. Professional roles of teacher educators

    Teacher educators fulfil a lot of different roles. Do teacher educators recognise these roles and how do they value them?

    3. School-based teacher education

    Learning during the practicum is often left to chance and a conceptual framework for this type of learning is missing. What kind of educational arrangements help to widen and deepen learning at the workplace?

  • Characteristics of the conference

    At the conference interaction and exchange between participants will be encouraged by means of active presentation formats and a variety of meetings. Key-notes will be discussed in smaller groups, possibilities will be created to meet other conference participants, speed dates will be held to find international sparring partners and collaboration will be stimulated.

    Research and Development Committees (RDC’s) play an important role in ATEE conferences. There are fifteen RDC’s dealing with all kinds of interesting subjects linked with teacher education like secondary teacher education or global education. At the conference RDC’s will be offering a programme of three meetings. They can be seen as a ‘home base’ where you can meet colleagues interested in the same subjects.

    In this conference, we aim to bridge theory and practice in order to increase the impact of research on the practice of teacher education. To do so, we want to encourage active exchange and interaction between the participants of the conference, who bring with them so many interesting points of view. Therefore, various presentation forms are scheduled in the programme, which all aim to secure in-depth discussions and a high level of interaction.

    Interactive sessions

    An important aspect of the conference is that we are interacting about our work as teacher educators. Some possibilities to engage participants in your presentation are:
    • ask to predict answer the results to the research questions;
    • before elaborating your central aspect, ask delegates for their ideas and/or experiences with the concept;
    • demonstrate your research by using parts of your questionnaires or interviews;
    • ask your audience for explanations of the findings;
    • ask your audience for implications for practice;
    • invite for discussing on social media like twitter;
    • organise discussions in pairs about your results.

    Submission of abstracts

    You are invited to submit an abstract for an:
    • Interactive paper presentation (individual or symposium; empirical or theoretical);
    • Interactive poster presentation (ongoing or finished research);
    • Active workshop (good practice, intervention, new game, tool or methodology);
    • Interactive round table discussion (discussing ongoing research).

    Authors may not submit more than two abstracts as first author.

  • Keynote speakers

    Two inspiring key notes will be addressed:

    prof. Pam Grossman (USA) and prof. dr. Fred Korthagen (The Netherlands)

    will feed the participants with new insights and ideas.
