Welcome to Future Teachers Talk, a ground-breaking, nationwide, virtual roundtable where your opinions matter. We want to hear what you think would help to attract more candidates – particularly secondary school students – into teaching. 

Over the coming weeks we’ll be challenging you in Problem and Solution Jams, which are designed to stimulate discussions and lead to innovative proposals to tackle important and difficult real-world issues faced by potential and current teachers. 

There are no right or wrong answers – only the sharing of fresh thinking from teacher education students across the country.

This project is a partnership between Swinburne University education, business, psychology and open innovation researchers and the Australian Council of Deans of Education, which represents most of the institutions that teach future teachers like you. 

Thank you for joining us to make the Future Teachers Talk a great success.
