The Network of Associate Deans of Learning and Teaching in the Discipline of Education (NADLATE) shares knowledge, identifies issues, and provides leadership about learning and teaching in the discipline of Education.
NADLATE was established in 2011 with an Office of Learning and Teaching (OLT) grant.
An evaluation of NADLATE’s operations since 2011, which uses the Most Significant Change (MSC) evaluation methodology, can be found here.
In late 2014 NADLATE released a report on Leading Learning in Teacher Education.
The Teachers Matter scoping project on teaching in low socioeconomic schools, done in partnership with Social Ventures Australia, has been completed and will be released soon.
