Teacher education policy and practice : evidence of impact, impact of evidence by J. G Nuttall( )

9 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume addresses both 'evidence of impact' and 'impact of evidence' to reveal the complex dialogue between the enterprise of teacher education and evidence of its effects in the early 21st century, taking a critical position on the very notions of 'evidence' and 'impact' that underpin contemporary policy frameworks. Teacher education programs in Australia and internationally are challenged by contemporary policy frameworks to demonstrate evidence of the impact they have on the capacity of graduating teachers to act with confidence and competence in school and early childhood education classrooms. At the same time, the field of teacher education is increasingly working to build a robust platform of research evidence that speaks to these policy frameworks and to broader issues concerning the role of teaching and teacher education in society

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The contributors to this volume explore challenges and dilemmas around professional learning that confront educators in Australia. The book is organised around three dimensions of professional learning: professionalism, identity formation and communal sites of professional learning. It addresses important questions. In what ways do policies and practices mediate the construction of 'a professional' among current and future educators? How do communal spaces shape the professional learning of educators? What are the tensions that emerge in the construction of professional identity through professional learning? As a whole, all chapters provide insight into the dynamic nature of 'professional becoming'"--Publisher
Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Classrooms : New Dilemmas for Teachers( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A critical reality of contemporary education in a globalised world is the growing cultural, racial and linguistic diversity in schools and the issues involved in educating increasing numbers of students who are still learning the dominant language. This poses extraordinary challenges for second and foreign language teachers in many countries, where such students must engage with the mainstream curriculum in a new language. What do these increasingly plurilingual and multicultural classrooms look like? And how do language teachers address the challenges of such diverse classrooms? This book brings together a group of well-recognised language education scholars who present their research in a range of international settings. They focus on the key areas of pedagogy, language policy and curriculum and exemplify new research directions in the field

Activity Theory and the New Literacy Studies Modelling the Literacy Learning Activity System by Alexander Kostogriz( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper explores a number of implications arising from the combination of the New Literacy Studies and cultural-historical psychology--in particular, the concept of literacy as social practice and the psychological category of activity. Placing "social" at the center of literacy and psychological studies, these two perspectives are fruitfully combined in the service of a particular literacy learning research framework. The focus on the social in literacy practices implies a certain understanding of configurations and reconfigurations of the elements which constitute those practices (J. Gee, 2000a). Activity Theory in this respect can be used to provide a broad conceptual framework for literacy research and the learning practice design. It functions, therefore, as a powerful and clarifying descriptive tool in studies of the human trajectories in literacy learning contexts in both its comprehensiveness and its engagement with the difficult issues of consciousness, intertextual memory, intentionality, mediation, intersubjectivity, history and change. Contains 53 references and 4 figures illustrating aspects of the models. (Author/RS)
Longitudinal teacher education and workforce study (LTEWS) : final report( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Longitudinal Teacher Education Workforce Study (LTEWS) investigated the career progression of graduate teachers from teacher education into teaching employment in all states and territories across Australia in 2012 and the first half of 2013, and tracked their perceptions, over time, of the relevance and effectiveness of their teacher education programs. Specifically, it investigated: the career progression of the 2011 teacher education graduates from teacher education into, and possible exit from, teaching employment, including their utilisation into teaching, their retention and attrition in teaching in their early years, and their geographic and schools sector mobility; and; the views of teacher education graduates over time on the relevance and effectiveness of their teacher education for their teaching employment, including the relationship between their views of their teacher education and their early career teaching career.
