Abstract

In this article Diane Mayer argues that professional standards for teaching and authentic assessment against those standards provide a framing for sustaining the professionalism of teacher education wherein teacher educators control the accountability agenda assuring the profession, governments and the general public of the quality of the graduates they prepare. Currently Pro Vice-Chancellor at Victoria University (Australia), Professor Diane Mayer has more than 20 years of experience in leadership positions across a number of institutions including Deakin University (Melbourne, Australia), the University of California at Berkeley (USA) and the University of Queensland (Australia). Professor Mayer’s research focuses on teacher education and beginning teaching. She examines issues associated with the professionalism of teaching and what that means for the policy and practice of teacher education and beginning teaching.
