Renewing Rural and Regional 
Teacher Education Curriculum

This resource is designed for all teacher educators.

It has been developed to support teacher educators to prepare future graduates for the challenges and opportunities of teaching in rural/regional communities.

The materials can be readily embedded into lectures, tutorials, workshops and professional learning experiences to provide teaching and learning environments that comprehensively consider the needs of rural and regional students, their families, schools and communities.

The website can be navigated in various ways to suit individual teacher educators’ needs. Underpinning the curriculum module design is a conceptual framework and links to key readings in rural teacher education and other related fields.To find out more about using this website, click on the tab 'How to use this site'.

Our aim is to inspire all teacher educators to produce quality teachers for regional and rural Australia.
