Preparing graduating teachers for the classroom – a new Teacher Education Expert Panel
The Australian Education Research Organisation’s (AERO) CEO, Dr Jenny Donovan, has been named as one of the members of a new Teacher Education Expert Panel.
The panel has been tasked with reviewing how teaching is taught at universities – one of the recommendations from the Quality Initial Teacher Education Review.
The panel will make recommendations on how to:
- strengthen the link between performance and funding of initial teacher education
- strengthen initial teacher education programs to deliver effective classroom ready graduates
- improve the quality of practical experience in teaching
- improve postgraduate initial teacher education for mid-career entrants.
‘High quality initial teacher education is crucial to support teachers in preparing for the demands of the classroom and for delivering excellent teaching to students’ – Dr Donovan
