Self-Study, Living Educational Theories, and the Generation of Educational Knowledge
Whitehead, Jack
Studying Teacher Education, v5 n2 p107-111 Nov 2009
In this commentary, the author focuses on both the learning he is seeing in the longitudinal studies described in this issue of "Studying Teacher Education," and the evidence of "educational influences in students' learning" that he believes could be enhanced in producing co-created living theories with teacher educators, students, and pupils as researchers. The author finds that the most inspiring quality of the studies presented in this issue resides in the evidence of the teacher educators' own learning that they show in their reflections on their own values and understandings. The author concludes by suggesting that support in helping both student teachers and pupils to see themselves as knowledge-creators in the generation of their own living educational theories could now inform research into the processes of enhancing educational learning and generating educational knowledge.
