Storytelling as a Means of Reflecting on the Lived Experience of Making Curriculum in Teacher Education
Garbett, Dawn; Tynan, Belinda
Australian Journal of Early Childhood, v32 n1 p47-51 Mar 2007
This paper describes how reflecting on our stories of teacher education practices facilitated a deepening appreciation of our impact on the quality of students' learning in a tertiary institution. In this paper, our description, analysis and re-interpretation of our experiences exemplify an effective approach for improving how we go about teaching teachers. Storytelling was the tool used to enable the authors to deepen their understanding of teacher-educator practices and promote a scholarly approach to curriculum development.
