Working in partnership with schooling systems, education workplaces and communities is an urgent task facing any School of Education in a university today.

Charles Darwin University continues to draw on this tradition of partnerships to grow the future for children and educators working in a variety of educational settings.

For the School of Education at CDU this is a task made more complex by our close connections with teacher education student cohorts and education systems in, for example, Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia.

The emotional, cultural and social components of successful schooling present ongoing challenges for teachers, children, parents and school managers. Our research projects aim to capture this diversity.

Our newly opened International Graduate Centre of Education (IGCE) will provide opportunities to grow professional development pathways for teachers and to address some of the challenges inherent in ever-changing workplaces and ‘teaching’ occupations.

Our seminar series – Research Commons – provides a forum for practical articulation and critical engagement with these ideas. Please contact us if you would like more details about partnerships or projects by email at
