Pre-conference workshops (brief content description)
Roundtable on professional associations for teacher educators
To strengthen the quality and position of teacher educators, professional associations can play an important role. Such associations can be an instrument to strengthen the professional self-awareness of teacher educators, contribute to the definition of professional standards or professional codes, contribute to the professional development of the members of the profession and raise the voice of teacher educators in the policy debates on the quality of teachers and teacher education.

In the European education arena, the Association for Teacher Education in Europe ATEE can be regarded as such a professional association. However, also on national levels there are opportuinities for professional associations for teacher educators. In some countries (e.g. The Netherlands, Flanders, Hungary) such professional associations exist, in other countries initiatives for the creation of professional associations are taken.

In this roundtable we want to bring together representatives from national associations for teacher educators, to share our activities, experiences, strategies, successes and dilemmas.
First aim is to get to know each other on the level of associations, next to learn from each other and to be inspired and finally to search for opportunities for collaboration.

If you represent a national professional association of teacher educators in your country and want to contribute to the exchange actively, please contact Marco Snoek (, so a presentation of your association can be integrated in the programme.

The Research and Development Centre (RDC) on Education for Social Justice, Equity and Diversity plans to hold a double session symposium within the RDC for ATEE 2010 on Research methodologies investigating diversity’. We wish to hear from those who have conducted research related to diversity in education (pupils and/or teachers) and can report on the methods they have used. We aim to have a geographical spread as well as a methodological range.

We invite submissions for this 3 hour symposium with a range of methodologies including qualitative and quantitative. The symposium will include discussion of the strengths and pitfalls of the methodologies as well as ethical considerations.

Your proposal should be sent in the first instance to the RDC Chair, Geri Smyth ( and should give an indication of the aims of your research and the methodology used. Proposals not accepted for the symposium will be considered for presentation in parallel sessions.

Ludwig Museum - The museum displays items owned by Irene and Peter Ludwig art collectors from Cologne, Germany. Its main theme is universal art from the past 50 years and Hungarian contemporary art from the past 10 years. -
mathias church
Mathias-Church - The church is officially called The Church of Our Lady, and served as a coronation church from the 16th century on. Its vast ecclesiastical collection and treasury is open for visitors. -
gellert baths
Gellert-Baths - Have you ever heard about the history of the Hungarian thermal baths? They were built in the 16th and 17th century, when the Turkish empire took over Hungary. These very old buildings contain healing and refreshing bath water (both hot and cold). The Gellert Bath and Hotel itself was built in the preceding decades, and opened its doors in 1918. Outdoor pools were added later on, and today it combines modern technical developments with rich historical heritage. -
national museum
Hungarian National Museum - During two hundred years passed since its foundation, enormous and mainly irreplacable collection of artefacts and documents has been collected at the Hungarian National Museum. The Museum began a series of exhibitions in 1997 to introduce new acquisitions to the public each year. Now in 2010, we proudly present a collection of the most valuable pieces of the past decade –
fine arts
Museum of Fine Arts - It was built by the plans of Albert Schickedanz and Fülöp Herzog in an eclectic-neoclassical style, between 1900 and 1906. The museum's collection is made up of international art (other than Hungarian), including all periods of European art, and comprises more than 100,000 pieces.
