2016 ATEE Annual Conference – Educating the Best Teachers: a Challenge for Teacher Education

22 August 2016

FONTYS, University of Applied Sciences

Rachelsmolen 1 – Building R3
Eindhoven, the Netherlands
22-24 August 2016


The 41st Annual ATEE Conference focuses on the important task of teacher education to educate the best teachers, teachers who are able to stimulate the cognitive and personal development of pupils, teachers who are innovative and able to develop themselves continuously.
The conference theme will be dealt with in three subthemes:

1. Innovation

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?

The response to the call for submissions has been great: over 200 proposals have been submitted. Teacher educators will present 175 presentations, posters, workshops and round table discussions.

Please visit for more information about the parallel sessions programme.
