Dr. Thomas Walsh Teacher Education in Ireland: Chequered Past, Contested Present, Creative Possibilities A strong relationship between the quality of teaching and the quality of learning has long been recognised, making teacher quality a perennial issue both in Ireland and internationally. Given the many purposes, foci and functions of the education system in Ireland in both the colonial era (up to 1922) and since, teacher selection, training/education, recruitment and management have been topical and contested issues. As well as placing an emphasis on teachers’ pedagogical competencies, there has been a concomitant focus on their personal character and identity historically. These discourses, and the resulting vision of the teacher, continue to be both influenced by and resistant to international trends and developments. All of this has placed an ongoing spotlight on teacher education and teacher educator policy and practice. This keynote address traces key trends in the historical evolution of teacher education policy and practice in the Irish context over the past two centuries. While the focus will be on primary teacher education policy, the analysis will be infused by lines of convergence and divergence from early childhood education, post-primary education and further education. The analysis is framed within the wider socio-political context of teacher education policy, exploring the various supranational and macro influences that have impacted on teacher education policy in Ireland. A particular emphasis will be placed on the multiplicity of developments in the past decade, most notably the embedding of a continuum of teacher education and the professional accreditation of teacher education programmes. A number of themes and issues permeate the address, including teacher identity and teacher diversity, as well as tensions between discourses of the trusted and agentic teacher educator and increasing regimes of regulation and accountability. The keynote concludes with some signposts as to the future directions of teacher education policy in Ireland in a post-Covid context given the past and current trajectories.

Dr. Suzanne M. Wilson (via video link) Democracy and Teacher Education Under Siege A confluence of forces—a pandemic, disruptive and (at times) toxic politics, and heightened urgency concerning racism, inequality, and inhumanity—shape our lives worldwide. Some scholars have argued that democracy is currently under siege. Many in teacher education would argue the same of teacher preparation. How do we, as individual teacher educators and as a community, understand our role in this time? How do we prepare teachers to participate in democratic dialogue that embraces difference and the difficult conversations those differences involve? How do we participate in that same dialogue with empathy, integrity, and understanding? What core challenges do we face?

Professor Neil Selwyn (via video link) Education in uncertain times…the benefits of foresight and hindsight As ATEE members will be well aware, teacher education and teaching currently face heightened levels of uncertainty and disruption. Yet, as our conference theme implies, this is not the first (nor the last) time that education seems in a state of flux and impending crisis. In this presentation, Neil Selwyn considers how the conference might engage with ideas of ‘foresight and hindsight’ in ways that can help make sense of where we might like education to be progressing next. In particular, Neil takes some of the key questions being addressed at the conference, and considers what can be learnt both from the history of education and the emerging area of 'futures studies'. For example, with the benefit of hindsight what does it mean to anticipate the end of the professionally-trained expert teacher? Alternately, with the benefit of foresight, what does it mean to anticipate...

We will leave Marino at 4pm and travel along the coast road towards Howth. At the summit participants will have the option of walking down from there to Howth Harbour or taking the bus down to harbour where they can take a short walk on the pier. Once all gathered again the bus will bring us further north along the North Dublin coastline through Portmarnock and in to Malahide. While in Malahide we will stop on the castle grounds, a perfect spot for some more photographs. After this we will return to Marino
