WHO WE ARE

The Australian Council of Deans of Education (ACDE) is the peak body representing all Australian universities and several of the private colleges that offer initial teacher education degrees.

ACDE works to ensure that Australia produces teacher graduates of the highest quality; has a strong teaching profession; and an inclusive and innovative education system that enhances learning and teaching.

WHAT THE ACDE DOES

  • Provides members with a forum to debate, develop strategies and share professional learning
  • Encourages national conversations that enhance the public standing of the education profession and promote the importance of evidence-based practices and policies in teacher education
  • Supports the funding, recognition and conduct of research in education and the training of researchers
  • Undertakes internationally recognised research and scholarship to support policy development
  • Partners with national organisations to influence education policy and practice

ZOMBIES WALK OFF WITH AWARD

An interactive poster, Gamification not Zombification, is one of two posters awarded the 2015 ACDE Postgraduate Student/Early Career Researcher Best Poster Award by the Australian Association for Research in Education.
Judges particularly praised the way the poster, by Kerstin Oberprieler (pictured left) and Simon Leonard, used technology to engage viewers to explain design thinking for education in complex environments.
The co-winner – Karyn Carson (pictured right), who focused on literacy pathways and pre-reading skills in early childhood – also impressed judges with the layout, attractiveness and clarity of her poster.
