Transitions in Education, 27 April 2017

As we approach the final term of this school year, the beginning of the next school year tends to be somewhat down the list in terms of our priorities. This is understandable. As the end of May or June approaches, however, some thought is given to the transition ahead – circulation of book lists for September for example. And for our pupils and students who are about to cross the significant threshold of primary to post-primary, it can be a somewhat anxious time. This is why we are turning to the topic of educational transitions for this research ezine. Click here to read more.

Student Teacher Research Ezine, 22 March 2017

Research by and for teachers is essential to support their learning and practice as professionals. The Teaching Council has endeavored to engage teachers with relevant research through research specific webinars and the publication of research ezines delivered to all registered teachers. Cognisant of the volume and quality of new research being conducted by ITE students as part of their programmes, the Teaching Council contacted all HEIs in 2016 with a view to publishing this research ezine, comprised of summaries of research carried out by students from Initial Teacher Education programmes nationwide. The submitted summaries represent both concurrent and consecutive, and indeed those from primary and post-primary programmes. While exploring a varied range of research topics, the summaries are usefully grouped under some of the Council's Priority Research AreasPedagogy, Teaching in a Changing Society, and The Continuum of Teacher Education.
