December 2016: In July we invited teacher educators from two universities to participate in interviews aimed at eliciting content for challenging teaching scenarios. From the content provided by 15 teacher educators, we drafted 38 scenarios, each with 5 possible responses! We are now inviting teacher educators from two other universities to review some of the new scenarios and provide feedback.

If you are one the the teacher educators we invited and are looking for copies of the participant information statement or withdrawal form, please see the links below:

November/December 2016: Earlier this year we started a longitudinal study  with teacher education students beginning their studies in a teacher education program at one of two NSW universities: UNSW and the University of Wollongong. Thank you to those who have agreed to participate! We are now starting to invite students in the Master of Teaching programs at UNSW and the University of Wollongong (who started their studies this year) to try our second questionnaire. This questionnaire is online and will take up to 15 minutes.

February/March 2016: We started a longitudinal study with teacher education students beginning their studies in a teacher education program at one of two NSW universities: UNSW and the University of Wollongong. Thank you to those who have agreed to participate! Our aim with this study is to help identify and assess the non-academic attributes (e.g., psychological characteristics including motivation) of pre-service teachers, with the goal of informing the professional learning experiences within teacher education programs. The overarching research question is: To what extent are non-academic skills and characteristics of prospective teachers being fostered and developed through teacher education?
