Griffith University, in collaboration with the Queensland College of Teachers and the Queensland Council of Deans of Education, is hosting the annual Initial Teacher Education (ITE) Summit with a spotlight on issues related to the teaching profession.
Initial teacher education policies and programs continue to transform and improve and make a positive impact on the teacher workforce. Despite this, the teaching profession suffers from pervasive and sometimes negative community perceptions. The Summit will use the central tenets from the recent Parliamentary Inquiry into The Status of the Teaching Profession as a catalyst for taking a proactive approach. Summit participants will work together to develop a suite of creative strategies and actions that can contribute towards positively framing the teaching profession, now and for the future. In so doing, we will progress the agenda into a positive, creative space.
Join MC Sarah Kanowski, from ABC Radio Conversations, for interactive conversations with TED-style contributions from guest speakers, expert panel discussions and dynamic case studies. All attendees will shape the Summit via group discussion and shared digital platforms to produce actionable outcomes. We will debate critical issues to:
frame teacher professionalism for the future;
explore initiatives in ITE and early career development to enable teaching professionals to thrive; and
take action by proposing and developing strategies to design enhanced futures for the profession and those within it.
We are seeking registration from a range of stakeholders: education deans and academics from higher education institutions; school leaders; experienced and beginning teachers from all school systems and sectors in Queensland; initial teacher education students and peak educational organisations.
If you would like to be a change-maker, please register by Friday, 7 June 2019.
