The conference theme will be dealt with in three subthemes:
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?
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.
