In March 2008 Teaching Australia commissioned Professor Bill Louden, then Senior Deputy Vice Chancellor, and colleagues from the Graduate School of Education to study a group of teacher education students graduating at the end of 2008 and 2009.

On January 1 2010 Teaching Australia became the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL).

This study has developed Teacher Learning Inventories for:

These Teaching Learning Inventories provide detailed information on the key characteristics of student entry, teacher education program and school environments on the formation of beginning teachers.

A focus of the study is on what beginning teachers know and are able to do at various stages of their development. 15 universities participated in the study and undertook the Teacher Learning Inventories across their teacher education programs in 2008 and 2009.

The report for this project is titled Learning from Teacher Education: The impact of teacher education on knowledge of literacy and mathematics teaching. A pdf document, (divided into two parts), of the report is available on this page .
