Claire Sinnema

Abstract


Educational reform and change relating to curriculum, pedagogy, standards, evaluation and professional learning have an important role to play in educational improvement initiatives. In this paper, I explore insights from policy, research and practice initiatives across key aspects of the New Zealand education landscape, relate those to improvement efforts internationally, and highlight implications and possibilities for teacher education. In particular, the focus is on curriculum reform, inquiry oriented practice, and collaborative inquiry-key: Elements of those policy turns are outlined, and consideration given to the implications for initial teacher education.
