Details about the graduation this summer and how to register for our reception.
Dr Pauline Reynolds, Associate Professor and Department Chair (Leadership and Higher Education) at the University of Redlands, California, obtained funding for Dr Emily Henderson (CES) to visit the School of Education at Redlands for a week in May 2017. During the institutional visit, Dr Henderson met with members of the Department of Leadership and Higher Education, and she and Dr Reynolds worked on a joint paper that they are writing on fictional representations of conferences - this draws on Dr Reynolds' research on representations of higher education in popular culture, and Dr Henderson's research on conferences. Dr Henderson also presented a paper to students and faculty members at Redlands, entitled 'How gender comes to mean what it means: embodied conceptual knowledge production in academic spaces'

Congratulations to Helen Knight
Global contribution award
Highly Commended: Helen Knight (Centre for Education Studies)
Helen goes completely above and beyond in her role. She has travelled to India on numerous occasions to work with the staff at Laksh, fostering a friendly and caring relationship with them. On top of that, she has completely changed the lives and perspectives of the students she has worked with. Helen has worked so hard on behalf of the Laksh volunteer project, and as a result the programme has gone from strength to strength. The project attracts fantastic students, and has made tangible changes on the ground at the NGO. The children who benefit from Laksh in India are getting a better education because of the Warwick-Laksh partnership, and are gaining exposure to international visitors. The NGO is also making gains in the gender balance at the schools – helping more girls to attend class.”

You are warmly invited to a discussion of Teacher Development 3.0: How we can transform the professional education of teachers, a new pamphlet by Teacher Education Exchange. You can download the pamphlet free at the following link: https://teachereducationexchange.com/publications/
In this pamphlet we discuss our ambition for:
1. A long-life teaching profession;
2. Schools, universities and teachers at the heart of their communities;
3. Education as cultural and societal development as well as individual advantage;
4. A continuum of professional learning.
So come along and join in the debate and hear from colleagues about teacher development can be transformed.
Teacher Education Exchange is a collective of higher education-based teacher educators and researchers, each with considerable experience in schools.
We look forward to seeing you and discussing developments at our University of Warwick event!
