Developing Trust in Teaching: Learning To Help Student-Teachers Learn about Their Practice.
Loughran, John; Berry, Amanda; Tudball, Elizabeth
This paper examines some of the social aspects of teaching about teaching that are important in shaping the nature of communication among teacher educators and their student teachers when sharing in the process of learning about teaching. The focus of this study is a third year, double degree subject, "Developing Pedagogy," that is team taught. The paper largely focuses on the students' perspective of the subject. Through developing and teaching this subject, the teacher educators have come to better understand the value of explicitly modeling particular aspects of teaching and how to purposefully "unpack" such experiences through honest and professional critique. An important aspect of this subject is paying careful attention to learning how to critique teaching actions rather than personally criticizing individuals. However, trust is a pivotal point to all aspects of such work. (Contains 17 references.) (Author/SM)
