Professional Judgment and Dispositions in Teacher Education
Dottin, Erskine S.
Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies, v25 n1 p83-88 Jan 2009
The word "dispositions" has suddenly emerged in the lexicon of teacher educators in the United States of America, and around the globe as found in publications such as "The International Journal of Diversity in Organizations, Communities and Nations and the Journal of the International Society for Teacher Education". However, it is clear from the literature that educators are just beginning to grapple with the definitional and philosophical aspects of the construct. This work seeks to assist the field of teacher education, both in the United States and internationally in gaining a better understanding of "dispositions," and, at the same time to offer working connections between professional judgment and dispositions, and provide grounding for the construct as "habits of mind" that render professional conduct more intelligent.
