LAP graduation conference: "The path from teacher training to the teaching profession".

The Leibniz Institute for Educational Trajectories (LIfBi) and the German Center for Higher Education and Science Research (DZHW) are jointly organizing the final conference of the BMBF project "Student Teacher Panel (LAP)" on May 25, 2023. With the focus on "The path from teacher training to the teaching profession", a significant topic of research on teacher education, which was the focus of the LAP project, will be addressed.

The conference will take place online and participation is free of charge. It is aimed at academics as well as teachers, school administrators and other stakeholders in the school education sector and teacher education.

Call for Abstracts (extended to 3/31/2023): "The path from teacher training to the teaching profession".

At the conclusion of the "Student Teacher Panel (LAP)" project funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, we cordially invite you to present your research on current topics in teacher education research and, in particular, using the data from the LAP. After an insight into the LAP project, we would like to engage in conversation about selected research projects on teacher education and teacher professional development.

The focus will be on two main topics:

1. well-being of (prospective) teachers
In the wake of the ongoing teacher shortage, teacher recruitment and the consideration of causes for (premature) exit from the teaching profession have increasingly come to the fore in recent years. Across all phases of teacher education, the professional well-being of (prospective) teachers is one of the crucial factors for their career retention as well as their professional actions. For example, the research literature shows that emotional exhaustion is associated with poorer teaching quality as well as higher rates of career attrition and early retirement.

2. digitalization and the impact of the Covid 19 pandemic on (prospective) teachers

The measures taken in the course of the Corona pandemic, such as school closures and distance learning, not only affected students, but also had a particular impact on teachers. The extent to which the digitization of schools and instruction was perceived and promoted by teachers during this time represents the central question of this focus topic.
As a further opportunity to present your research, a thematically unbound poster session is planned. We welcome submissions for this as well. Finally, a concluding panel discussion with selected guests will discuss current challenges in teacher education.

The conference will take place online, participation is free of charge. It is aimed at academics as well as teachers, school administrators and other stakeholders in the school education sector and teacher education.

The detailed Call for Abstracts can be found as a PDF download on the right (gray box).
