Enhancing Teacher Education Practice through Professional Learning Conversations
Schuck, Sandy; Aubusson, Peter; Buchanan, John
European Journal of Teacher Education, v31 n2 p215-227 May 2008
The paper discusses the value of peer observation followed by professional learning conversations for the professional development of teacher educators. The authors Analise their shared learning experiences and articulate what challenged them in these experiences. They discuss the ways in which their perceptions of this process differed or were similar. The grounding of the experience in a context of trust and professional relationship was seen as an essential part of the learning process. The authors highlight the importance of the cognitive-emotional and personal-professional aspects of teacher educators' lives in supporting their learning through the combination of peer observation and ongoing professional learning conversations.
