Lead: Professor Diane Mayer, Professor of Education (Teacher Education), University of Oxford

BERA Presidential Roundtables provide compelling research reviews offering a state-of-the-art position on topics that are of interest to researchers, practitioners, policy makers and wider society. Each Presidential Roundtable results in a clear statement of the evidence in the field and implications for educational policy and practice. It is hoped that the statements will be a key reference point over several years, subject to periodic review and updating. The roundtables will also be used to promote engagement and dialogue across as many stakeholders as possible.

Each roundtable involves a range of speakers and contributors with knowledge about the topic that is the focus for the RoundTable. Contributors will also bring pressing questions for consideration, from policy, practice and research perspectives. Emphasis is given to topics that are recurrent concerns in education, and that are directly relevant to policy-makers, practitioners and research communities.

This Presidential Roundtable will focus on initial teacher education. By engaging a range of stakeholders from across the UK, current teacher education policy, practice and research will be examined and discussed. Recommendations for future teacher education policy and practice will be developed.
