Abstract: 
This symposium highlights three key innovations embedded in a teacher education program at Edith Cowan University, Western Australia. Academics established a transformative culture of learning and teaching amongst pre-service teachers in undergraduate and graduate courses. Students develop into practitioners who are flexible, critically reflective and culturally collegial where they are part of a community of learners where staff and students are seen as allies and mentors. In developing a new B.Ed course and redesigning a Graduate Diploma of Education course, staff in the education program introduced a raft of innovations to improve the responsibility of learners, self-efficacy and resilience of professional teachers in the early years of their career. The symposium team from ECU will model a social constructivist approach as they outline key elements that underpin the development of a strong culture of learning and teaching. Participants will be guided through elements of design and structure at the course and unit level, innovations in practicum organisation and pedagogy and, techniques to motivate and engage students whilst maximising time on task.
