Winifred Mercier Public Lecture - Teacher education: Past, Present...and Future?
by Professor Gary McCulloch
Time: 18:00 - 19:30 (arrival from 17:30)
Date: Wednesday 8 March 2017
Location: James Graham, Headingley Campus
The great French sociologist and teacher educator Emile Durkheim famously observed that it is only by carefully studying the past that we can anticipate the future and understand the present.
Yet in our current debates around teacher education and how it should develop and improve, we too often forget the past or take it for granted.
In this lecture Professor Gary McCulloch seeks to reconnect both the history of teacher education with an understanding of our present dilemmas and reposition it as being of pivotal importance.
He peers from a troubled world into an uncertain future to ask how far we can anticipate what is to come in the teacher education of the 21st century.
