Computer, Craft, Complexity, Change: Explorations into Science Teacher Knowledge
Mulholland, Judith; Wallace, John
Studies in Science Education, v44 n1 p41-62 Mar 2008
In this article we review the notion of teacher knowledge from four metaphorical standpoints--teacher knowledge as "computer", as "craft", as "complexity" and as "change". We employ each of these metaphors to examine and analyse the work of one teacher of science. We draw implications from our analysis for teacher education, teacher development and the study of teaching.
