Causes of Tension in Post-Observation Feedback in Pre-Service Teacher Training: An Alternative View
Copland, Fiona
Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies, v26 n3 p466-472 Apr 2010
A central component in pre-service teacher training is teaching practice and feedback. In some cases, feedback results in disquiet and tension (Brandt, 2008). Many researchers attribute this tension to the incompatibility of the assessment and development roles that the trainer must perform. The research reported on here, however, suggests that tension may also be rooted in a difference in expectation amongst trainers and trainees about the purpose and performance of feedback. This can result in trainees not playing by the rules of the game (Roberts & Sarangi, 2001) either because they do not understand them or because they wish to challenge them.
