Teacher Education Through Uncertainty and Crisis: Towards Sustainable Futures

Terri Seddon, Alexander Kostogriz, Joanna Barbousas

Research output: Book/ReportEdited Bookpeer-review


This book examines teacher education at a critical turning point in the neoliberal dispensation that has steered education policy and practice since the 1980s. It examines Australia’s teacher education reforms, the ‘TEMAG reforms’ launched in 2014, and traces their effects on teacher education practice in 2019 and into the challenges, uncertainties and doubts of 2020’s entangled health, economic and environmental crises. Combining data-rich insights into policy and professional workspaces and places, with a temporal sensibility, this book probes the limits of neoliberal logics and shows how school- and university-based educators’ professionalism sustains the preparation of beginning teachers through school-university partnerships.

Teacher Education Through Uncertainty and Crisis explores the relationalities, spatialities and temporalities of teacher education, sketching hopeful innovations, pathways and sustainable futures for teacher professionalism. This book will be of interest to policymakers, teacher educators and other professionals who understand the power of education in an uncertain world.
