What is the TPEA?
The Association for Information Technology in Teacher Education (ITTE), founded in 1986, is changing their name to the Technology, Pedagogy and Education Association (TPEA). This learned society aims to inform about policy and practice in education technology. The TPEA name was chosen to align with ITTE’s well established international journal of the same name.
This is an association of teacher educators who share an interest in improving learning through the application of digital technology in teaching and through the effective teaching of Computing as a subject. Our concerns include: the pedagogical application of digital technology by all teachers; developing the teaching of computing and digital capability; and the effective use of education technology in teacher education itself.
We are an independent organisation with a membership drawn from Higher Education institutions, schools, colleges and supporting organisations. Our services include an annual conference, an academic journal, a newsletter, a website containing a variety of tools and resources, induction for new tutors, and support for members’ research activities.
Through these services, we encourage and support collaboration between organisations and individuals in developing good practice and carrying out research, and we support the dissemination of the results of these activities nationally and internationally through conferences, journals and books.The 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.
We liaise with government bodies and other associations in order to inform on policy and practice in teacher education – both pre-service and CPD – as a key element in the improvement of educational outcomes.
