Beginning Teachers' Challenges in Their Pursuit of Effective Teaching Practices
Confait, Steve
Cogent Education, v2 n1 Article 991179 2015
This article explores the context and experiences of three beginning teachers in their effort to improve their teaching and to implement and align themselves with their schools' expectations of effective teaching practices. Research findings emerging from a sociocultural-ethnographic framework revealed that participants challenged their own beliefs about effective teaching practices in aligning themselves with their schools' expectations. In complying with routine expectations, they embraced predominantly teacher-centred practices, rather than a student-centred approach. Given the ongoing effort to augment the quality of education in the Seychelles, beginning teachers' implementation of and access to evidenced-based practices could be recognised as part of this endeavour.
