This project will:
- Identify a sample of comparative programmes for the professional education of teachers in the post-compulsory, learning and skills [including adult education] fields.
- Liaise with providers to investigate teacher education models of work-based reflective practice in the North and South of Ireland
- Consider the implication of post-compulsory teacher education and emerging national and professional standards
- Design a website to support the project by hosting an online community forum for key discussion areas, survey instruments/e-questionnaires and project information for participating providers.
The researchers aim to host an online conference to disseminate key findings and establish a community of practice for future collaboration.
