Learning to Teach: What Do Pre-Service Teachers Report
Naylor, Dawn A.; Campbell-Evans, Glenda; Maloney, Maloney
Australian Journal of Teacher Education, v40 n11 Article 7 Nov 2015
Taking a sociocultural approach to understanding the phenomenon of learning to teach, this study examined the extent to which seven pre-service teachers, in their final year of a Bachelor of Education course in a regional Australian university campus, identified personal, professional and contextual aspects as significant influences on learning to teach. By listening to the voices of the preservice teachers, this study found three orientations towards learning to teach. While these orientations were specific to the pre-service teachers enrolled in one regional teacher education program, they do offer teacher educators some insight and advice into the phenomenon of learning to teach in contemporary times.
