"Women's Ways of Knowing" among Female Saudi Student Teachers: Implications for Teaching and Learning
Aldegether, Reem
Issues in Educational Research, v27 n1 p1-18 2017
This exploratory quantitative research investigated how "women's ways of knowing" (WWK) apply to female Saudi student teachers, and aimed to provide a useful contribution for further prospective study about this subject. The study used the Attitudes to Thinking and Learning Survey (ATTLS) questionnaire to investigate two such ways of knowing: separate and connected knowing (forms of procedural knowledge). Participants were 190 female Saudi student teachers. Results showed that participants used predominately connected, not separate, ways of knowing. The study concludes that the use of connected versus separate ways of knowing may conform to the ideals of one's society rather than one's personal preference or learning style. Suggestions for education of Saudi female teachers are provided on this basis.
