The Scholarship of Educational Foundations: What Does It Imply for Teaching a Course?
Osguthorpe, Richard D.
New Educator, v3 n2 p103-121 Apr 2007
This article examines the process of learning to teach an educational foundations course and explores the complexities of designing and teaching an educational foundations course based on the current educational foundations scholarship. The author details his graduate school experiences related to the pedagogy of educational foundations, connects that initial training to his early induction experiences, and describes how his understanding of the pedagogy of educational foundations has evolved over this period of time. In conclusion, the author examines the idiosyncratic nature of the course he currently teaches and offers recommendations for the preparation of future foundations educators. (Contains 2 footnotes.)
