ATEE Annual Conference 2023
28-30. August, 2023, Budapest

We are living through an era characterised by fake news, a global pandemic, invasion, and climate crisis. In the world of teacher education, these, and other, factors have created waves of rapid and radical shifts – including social, economic, political and technological contexts of the filed – thus bringing new challenges for teacher education systems, institutions and participants.

Simultaneously, many of the problems of the past have been persistent, intensified or reshaped. Combined, these internal, external, new and old changes and challenges keep teacher educationin a state of constant flux.

Now, there is a need for us to gather, reflect, and problem-solve together. The aim of the conference is to provide an opportunity for researchers, teacher educators, teachers, policymakers and students in the field of teacher education to confront these ever-evolving changes, and to provide a platform for presenting and discussing the results of research and developments related to these changes. It also aims to provide participants with opportunities for professional development and networking.

The conference will focus on research and development in teacher education related to three intersecting and complex levels of change: (1) changes within teacher education itself – i.e. at national, organisational, programme, teacher and student levels; (2) changes in teacher education as a product of broader transformations in public and higher education (e.g. teacher shortages, teacher selection, recruitment, preparation, evaluation, knowledge as well as education policy reform); (3) changes in teacher education coming from shifts in the wider social environment (e.g. educational legislation, the Covid-19 pandemic, the rise of fake news, political crises, the climate crisis, as well as the development of new technologies and sustainability measures).

Abstracts are invited for the following themes/sub-themes:

  •       Teacher education curricula
  •       Actors in teacher education
  •       Teachers’ and teacher educators’ learning and professional development
  •       Public education and teacher Education
