Individual Development Plans as Governance Tools--Changed Governance of Teachers' Work
Parding, Karolina; Liljegren, Andreas
Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, v61 n6 p689-700 2017
Auditing, accountability, and transparency are concepts that greatly impact the working conditions of today's public sector professionals, including teachers. Documentation requirements have been on the increase for some time, which can be seen in the education sector's Individual Development Plans (IDPs), for example. These IDPs are pedagogical tools, but can also be seen as governance tools, which is how we will treat them here. In this conceptual paper, we argue that to improve knowledge of education policy changes, there is a need to consider the changed documentation requirements from the perspective of sociology of professions. To this end, we use Evetts' occupational and organisational logics and Abbott's three aspects of professional work.
