Akslen, Åse Nylenna; Sæle, Ove Olsen
Educational Practice and Theory, v36 n1 p43-55 2014
The project's purpose is to gain greater insight into how preschool teacher students develop a professional role through their three-year education, by the means of a mandatory text called "Pedagogic Creed." By studying these texts it is possible to read signs of a process in ethical and professional formation. The article shows to preliminary findings from an ongoing study in Bergen, Norway, focusing on preschool teacher students' development from students to teachers. Both a qualitative and a hermeneutic approach are used in analyzing data. The students' Pedagogic Creeds documents how they develop in a more authentic and professional direction.
