When Rural Meets Urban: The Transfer Problem Chinese Pre-Service Teachers Face in Teaching Practice
Ye, Wangbei
Journal of Education for Teaching: International Research and Pedagogy, v42 n1 p28-49 2016
Traditional teacher education's supposed failure to prepare prospective teachers for classroom realities (the transfer problem) is a widely discussed topic in the teacher education literature. Previous studies have focused on causal relationships between teaching and such factors as pre-service teacher education programmes, contextual factors in the practicum school, and transition shock; however, most of these studies have been set in developed countries, and have paid little attention to the interactions among such factors. This study, involving 35 East China Normal University pre-service teachers, explores the transfer problem in a rural/urban divide context, discusses the possible impacts of pre-service teachers' previous educational experience (i.e. before teacher education) on their teaching, and examines the interactions among teachers' previous education experience, teacher education, and practicum schools.
