Re-imagining a curriculum for teacher knowledge

A BCF Event for schools, colleges and universities

What do teachers do?  How we answer this question has implications for what they need to know and how, where and when they learn to be teachers.  Policy and practice across the devolved nations of the United Kingdom in terms of initial and continuing education has changed and diversified in recent years. This British Curriculum Forum event provides an opportunity for education professionals from across different education systems and sectors to come together to re-imagine a curriculum for teacher knowledge for the 21st century.   The day will facilitate participants from different sectors to engage with theoretical, innovative and practical aspects of the curriculum, and continue Lawrence Stenhouse’s practice of curriculum research and development.
