In Trinity term 2019, the department ran a seminar series on ‘Future directions in teacher education research, practice and policy’.

Convened by the department’s Diane Mayer and Alis Oancea, the series considered teacher education reforms around the world in order to tease out future directions and possibilities for the relationships between teacher education policy, research and practice.  The series marked 100 years since the passing of a statute creating what was known in 1919 as the University Department for the Training of Teachers by paying tribute to the expertise in and advances to the field of teacher education both within and outside of the department today.
