We are delighted to welcome you to the 2022 TEPE International Conference on "Enhancing the value of teacher education research: Implications for policy and practice" to be held at the University of Graz, Austria, 11th-13th April 2022.

This annual scientific event brings together teacher education experts from around the world: representatives of universities, governmental and non-governmental institutions, researchers, policy-makers and teacher education professionals. The conference also welcomes the contribution of early stage researchers in teacher education and other related fields. We expect that the event will be a great opportunity for learning and reflection on the value of teacher education research, exploring the implications of teacher education research for policy and practice. The following are some of the central questions for this year's conference: What is the purpose of research in teacher education? Which are effective ways to produce a knowledge base for teacher education? How can teacher education research inform policy? What is meaningful research for teacher education practice?

The conference is organized by the TEPE Scientific Network in collaboration with the Institute of Education Research and Teacher Education and the Center for Teacher Education at the University of Graz and is supported by the teacher education section of the Austrian Society for Research and Development in Education.

During the conference, the scientific programme consists of keynote speeches, plenary sessions, symposium presentations, paper presentations, and poster presentations. We are preparing this event as a physical conference in Graz. However, if the possibility to meet physically is prevented by the development of the Covid-19 pandemic, the event will be held virtually as an online conference.

We kindly ask you to submit your abstract at the conference by 14th January 2022. Registration will be open in February.

We look forward to your contribution and participation in the TEPE 2022 conference and we hope that the conference will provide stimulating discussions, networking and cooperation!

On behalf of the TEPE board and the Organising Committee,

Dr. Vasileios Symeonidis, University of Graz, Austria
