TPEA who are organising this conference aim to strengthen educators’ research voice and influence policy and practice in technology. Our purpose is to impact on learning by uniting research and practice in our support of initial and continuing professional development for educational professionals. TPEA members publish widely in professional journals, newsletters and in the education press and write most of the standard course books used in teacher education published by Routledge.
To be formally launched in 2019, TPEA is a partnership between the Association of Teacher Educators in Information Technology (ITTE) founded in 1986, and the MirandaNet Fellowship, founded in 1992, which together have nearly 1,500 members world wide. The name was chosen to align with ITTE’s well established international journal, Technology, Pedagogy and Education published by Taylor Francis that is edited by members. This is one of the top-ranked international journals in educational research.
