ATEE are hosting an on-line webinar with Professor Jean Murray as the key speaker on
Tuesday, 8 September 2020 – 13.00-15.00 pm BST/ 14.00-16.00 pm CET/ 15.00-17.00 pm EET
This webinar discusses the White Paper ‘The Importance of Teacher Educators: Professional development imperatives’ (https://info-ted.eu/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/InFo-TED-White-Paper.pdf) produced by the International Forum for Teacher Educator Development (InFo-TED) (https://info-ted.eu/). The White Paper identifies an under-addressed issue in European education policy, namely the professional development of teacher educators. It details the activities of the multi-national InFo-TED group in gathering the largest body of evidence to date on European teacher educators’ professional learning.
The White Paper outlines the challenges in this type of professional development, identifies ways in which the work of InFo-TED has addressed them, and then proposes evidence-based ways forward. The knowledge gained from the project has been used to create a range of online and face-to-face resources and events, including an extensive website and a Summer Academy for teacher educators, as well as engagement and dissemination events for policy makers across Europe and wider international contexts. The overall focuses have been to support communal and interactive professional development, to invest in knowledge creation and to create a shared European vision for teacher educators.
