On Thursday we had the Learning and Teaching Conference for 2012 where I was presenting a paper with Maryann entitled “If you can teach, teach teachers”. This is a version of a paper we presented at the ATEA conference in July where we examine the puzzle pieces of our work as teacher educators and the learning of our students.
After a keynote on the nature of our students and our future challenges in learning and teaching it was time for the presentation of the Vice-Chancellor’s awards for contributions to student learning. I was excited to receive a citation For promoting and modelling a scholarship of learning and teaching principles, to build teacher capacities and encourage a school-wide culture of learning. Here I am with my award and with Rohan who came along to see me receive it – it was a hot day and our curly hair is struggling to be tamed!
