Title: Learning and Teaching session: Evaluating the assumptions of the “Impact agenda” in Initial Teacher Education (ITE).
Dr Rod Lane, Macquarie University

their effect on student learning, have been foregrounded in Australian policy discourse. With policy’s increasing focus on impact, it becomes necessary to examine the academic literature to ascertain how the term impact is defined and understood.

It focuses on one key question: What does the research say about ITE practices that impact student learning?
