The three-day (earlier longer) conference is a meeting place and platform for teacher educators and researchers from all over the world. It combines inspiring keynotes, a wide variety of papers on research and practice of teacher education, and active working sessions organised by the Research and Development Communities (RDCs) in a friendly, informal and lively atmosphere.

The 43rd Annual ATEE conference A future for all – teaching for a sustainable society pays attention to critical questions concerning rapid changes and citizenship in society.
Education has a responsibility to foster skills, attitudes and behavior that will lead to sustainability and inclusive growth. The urgent need to understand the past for building tomorrow with new approaches in education puts important questions in focus regarding human wellbeing, social inclusion, environmental protection and globalization. These perspectives and approaches in research and practice in teaching and teacher education is the central focus of this conference.
The conference aims to contribute to a thought-provoking discussion on these issues by challenging and problematizing the paradigms that are currently influencing research, policies and practices in the education field.

The title can include many perspectives as education is an investment in the future.
We therefore have to ask what future, or more precisely, what do we expect for the future? What do we want the future to be?
To answer those questions we have concentrated on three main tasks:
What do we think are the most severe challenges facing humans and humankind and what consequences should it have for teaching and teacher education?
What can we expect of technological development and what effects will it have on the role of teachers and students and of how we organize education in the future?
How do we educate teachers to meet a rapidly changing world? How to educate for the unexpected?
The XXXVII ATEE Annual Conference “Policies and Professionalism in Teacher Education”will be hosted by Anadolu University from 25 to 29 August 2012.
The conference will enable interaction, dialogue, knowledge exchange and creation in relation to the topics set out above through keynote addresses, parallel sessions where papers will be presented and discussed.
