Becoming Partners: Partnerships reshaping preservice teachers’ preparation to teach in rural Queensland schools
Willis, Jill, Bahr, Nan, Bannah, Janet, & Welch, Alison (2012) Becoming Partners: Partnerships reshaping preservice teachers’ preparation to teach in rural Queensland schools. In The Australian Teacher Education Association (ATEA) 2012 Conference; Conference Handbook & Abstracts, Samford Grand Adelaide (Glenelg), Adelaide.
Preparing preservice teachers for successful rural and remote teaching is an ongoing and significant issue that impacts on equity issues for Australian students (Sharplin, 2002) and the sustainability of rural communities (Green & Reid, 2004). Improving the preparation of preservice teachers for teaching in rural schools is a key recommendation from the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission (2000). This presentation analyses how an innovative partnership between a teacher employer and a teacher education institution as a response to a mandated reform within the Improving Teacher Quality National Partnership Agreement has been established to address the important need to prepare and recruit preservice teachers to teach in rural and remote areas of Queensland.
