Project title: Practices and Partnerships: Examining teacher learning and professional development in initial teacher education programmes

Situated in the complex landscape of initial teacher education provision in England, this research is concerned with teacher learning and professional development. Utilising a conceptual framework addressing issues of conflict, transition and agency, the project addresses the need for focused support for trainees, teacher educators and teachers.

The project will involve work with CITED (Centre for Innovation in Teacher Education and Development), a joint partnership between King’s College London and Teachers College, Columbia University as we work together to provide opportunities for collaboration and development for teacher educators internationally.
