What and How Do Student Teachers Learn during School-Based Teacher Education
Buitink, Jaap
Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies, v25 n1 p118-127 Jan 2009
This study looks at how student teachers learn to teach during school-based teacher education. It explores the changes that occurred in the practical theories of the student teachers and how the student teachers made these modifications. Eight student teachers were closely monitored during their training. The study's findings show that all student teachers developed broad, well-structured practical theories that focused on pupils' learning processes. Their learning processes displayed considerable individual variation. As a result of these findings, several questions have been formulated for further research concerning the impact of learning style on learning outcomes and learning in a work-based context. (Contains 3 tables and 2 figures.)
