New teacher identity and regulative government the discursive formation of primary mathematics teacher education by Tony Brown ( )
19 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 616 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"New Teacher Identity and Regulative Government documents in real time the implementation of a major government numeracy programme and its receipt by trainee and new teachers. It shows how such managerialist policies cast teachers as civil servants through de-professionalising the conception of their role. The book provides an easy and accessible commentary utilising contemporary theory to describe how such teachers reconcile their personal aspirations with the external demands they encounter in negotiating their identities as professional teachers. It further shows how recent advances in psychoanalytic and post-structuralist theory enable a fresh approach to analysing teacher experience of, and response to, policy implementation. And more broadly, by situating education in a wider social framework, this book demonstrates how we can better formulate solutions to new problems in conceptualising education policy." "This book will be of interest to researchers in mathematics education, teacher education, policy implementation, contemporary theory and psychoanalysis in education, as well as to student teachers, teacher educators, teachers carrying out in-service training and postgraduate students in education."--Jacket

Becoming a mathematics teacher identity and identifications by Tony Brown ( )
10 editions published in 2011 in 3 languages and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Annotation The book is centered on how major curriculum reform shapes mathematics and the professional practices of teachers. This book documents in real time the implementation of a major government numeracy programme and its receipt by trainee and new teachers. It documents the complete life span of that initiative. The account is targeted at an international readership in terms of how curriculum reform more generally shapes mathematics in schools and the practices of teachers. A key dimension of the book is an alternative view of mathematics education research in which the task of teacher development is understood at policy level where large numbers of teachers were interviewed to assess how policies were being processed through individuals. The book provides an easy and accessible commentary utilising contemporary theory to describe how such teachers reconcile their personal aspirations with the external demands they encounter in negotiating their identities as professional teachers
Workplace learning in teacher education : international practice and policy by Olwen McNamara ( )
7 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book explores teacher workplace learning from four different perspectives: social policy, international comparators, multi-professional stances/perspectives and socio-cultural theory. First, it considers the policy and practice context of professional learning in teacher education in England, and the rest of the UK, with particular reference to professional masters level provision. The importance of teachers and schools perceptions of improvement, development and learning, and the inherent tensions between individual, school and government priorities is explored. Second, the book considers models of teacher workplace learning to be found in international research and practice to explore what perspective they can bring to understanding policy and practice relating to workplace learning in the UK. Third, it draws on cross-professional analysis to get an intellectual and theoretical purchase on workplace learning by examining how insights from across the professions can provide us with useful perspectives on policy and practice. The analysis draws particularly on insights from medicine and educational psychology. Fourth, the book cross-fertilises research and practice across the field of education by drawing on insights from perspectives such as socio-cultural and activity theory and situated learning/cognition to discover what they can offer in analysing the theoretical and pedagogic underpinnings of teacher workplace learning. In short, the book offers a number of contexts for exploring how best to conceptualise and theorise learning in the workplace in order to generate evidence to inform policy and practice and facilitates the development of a more theoretically informed and robust model of workplace learning and teaching
