Answering the Call: Reflections on Professional Learning and English Teaching
Curwood, Jen Scott; O'Grady, Alison
English in Australia, v50 n3 p31-34 2015
Research in English involves understanding the complex process of professional learning, which begins in teacher education programs. In this special issue of "English in Australia," we draw on our experiences as researchers and teacher educators at the University of Sydney. We take a sociocultural and situated perspective in order to explore the purpose of English teacher education, argue for the importance of multi-faceted research into professional learning, and explore future research directions.
