WHO WE ARE

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
