Join us for the final event of the year in the SA calendar as we host our last Education on the Square and look back at 2017.

Event Details

2017’s concluding Education on the Square will focus on the Teacher Education Ministerial Advisory Group (TEMAG), and answer the questions:

  • what is expected of TEMAG?
  • what progress has been made?
  • will TEMAG better prepare student teachers to successfully begin teaching on graduation?

The guest speaker for this event will be Registrar of the Teachers’ Registration Board of South Australia, Dr Peter Lind.

Certificates will be presented to members who have reached significant milestones in their membership of the College. There will also be brief annual reports, along with the introduction of the 2017 Committee. Refreshments will be provided.

Guest Speaker

Dr Peter Lind has been the Registrar of the Teachers Registration Board of South Australia since September 2014. Previously, he was the Director of the New Zealand Teachers Council from 2005 to 2014. In his current role, he is responsible for the implementation of processes by which teachers are registered, teacher education programs are accredited and hearings to consider matters of teachers’ conduct and incapacity are considered.

Peter has also been the Director of Teacher Education at Massey University, responsible for teacher education programmes ranging from early years to secondary school teacher education.

Included in Dr Lind’s previous experience is primary school principalship, completion of post-graduate study in physical education in British Columbia, Canada, and lecturing in Physical Education, Health and Outdoor Education. His great lifelong interest in sport and physical education is reflected in a host of activities. His new ambition is being able to master the Stand Up Paddle Board.

The focus of Dr Lind’s Education on the Square presentation will be the new standards and processes for accrediting Initial Teacher Education (ITE) programs and what this means for educators. Peter’s input will stimulate a great deal of discussion. Come and join us!
