Theory in Educational Research and Practice in Teacher Education
Higgs, Leonie G.
Bulgarian Comparative Education Society, Paper presented at the Annual International Conference of the Bulgarian Comparative Education Society (11th, Plovdiv, Bulgaria, May 14-17, 2013)
A problem in education, that has long concerned philosophers of education, is the problem of the relationship between theory and practice in educational research and practice. Despite the fact that much has been written on the relationship between theory and practice in education, it would seem that teachers continue to cling to an image of theory as incomprehensible "jargon" that has nothing to do with their everyday problems and concerns. This paper sets out to address this misconception by discussing the views of lecturers involved in teacher education on the place of theory in educational research and practice in teacher education.
