On the Possibilities of Educating Active and Reflective Teachers
Hoveid, Marit Honerod; Hoveid, Halvor
European Educational Research Journal, v3 n1 p49-76 2004
Education is working with language. As teacher educators, this is the authors' main theory. They present one way of working with language through language-games. The article is constructed in three sections. The first part presents the method, stating what concepts are essential in order to understand both this way of working with student teachers and the structure of the article. Two concepts are brought to the fore, that is; teacher identity and teacher knowledge. In the second section the authors introduce their way of working with cases. They briefly present what they mean by case-work, how cases are constructed and how they work with them. In the final section they theorise about some key aspects of education. They present two concepts for understanding individual learning processes. These concepts are embedded in the philosophy of ethics. Thus, their theoretical outline moves the origin of learning from the knowledge of subjects to the learning self. (Contains 7 notes.)
