Last week I attended the Academic Identities Conference at the University of Auckland Epsom 

campus.

I was interested in the conference because in my work with teachers, curriculum development and communities of practice how teachers see themselves is critical to their performance.

The keynote speakers were all interesting and inspiring. Sandra Acker, University of Toronto, Canada, Dr Eva Bendix Petersen, University of Newcastle, Australia and Dr Melinda Weber, University of Auckland presented different and interesting perspectives on academic identities, their formation and their fluidity.

The papers presented were interesting, and as ever it was great to catch up with old colleagues and meet new ones.

Ed, Hazel and I presented a paper Thinking, researching and living in a virtual professional development community of practice
