Learning To Walk the Walk: Teacher Educators' Use of Constructivist Epistemology in Their Own Practice.
Brindley, Roger
Professional Educator, v22 n2 p1-14 Spr 2000
Investigated the teaching behaviors of 11 teacher educators working with early childhood education student teachers. Participants provided course syllabi and written descriptions of activities and assignments, then completed interviews. Most instructors philosophically aligned with constructivist epistemology, though few discussed constructivist theory explicitly in class or with colleagues. Constructivist tenets were instead reflected in classroom pedagogy and interactions with students. (SM)
