Up, Close and Personal: Teachers' Responses to an Individualised Professional Learning Opportunity
Muir, Tracey; Beswick, Kim; Williamson, John
Asia-Pacific Journal of Teacher Education, v38 n2 p129-146 May 2010
This paper provides an account of professional learning in action through documenting the experiences of three upper primary teachers as they engaged in reflection-on-action with the assistance of an academic mentor. Video-stimulated recall was used as a mechanism to encourage productive reflective practice, using video footage of each teacher's numeracy lessons. The results indicated that although it was a powerful medium for stimulating reflection, and the teachers indicated that it was a beneficial process, there was limited evidence to suggest that it resulted in substantial changes to their practices. Reasons for this are hypothesised and recommendations made for personalising professional learning to cater for the needs and context of individual teachers. (Contains 2 notes.)
