Teaching Policies in Europe: Strengthening Collaboration

Project Description

Project aims to explore the policy discourses of teacher collaboration in three different EU Member States: England, Ireland and the Netherlands.  Project is supported by Summer School in European Education Studies (SUSEES). It addresses the following questions:

  • What are the dominant discourses of teacher collaboration in the national policy texts?
  • Is teacher collaboration a clear policy focus in all three contexts, or is there a notable difference in the emphasis placed on it?
  • Finally, how do the policy discourses of teacher collaboration link to wider debates in education at European and global level (e.g. school autonomy, privatization, and performativity)?

Participating Academics:

  • Natalie Browes, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain
  • Alison Milner, The University of Nottingham, United Kingdom
  • Dr. Timothy R. N.  Murphy, School of Education, The University of Limerick, Republic of Ireland
