Paradigms, Perspectives and Dichotomies amongst Teacher Educators in Hong Kong
Katyal, Kokila Roy; Fai, Pang Ming
Journal of Education for Teaching: International Research and Pedagogy, v36 n3 p319-332 Aug 2010
This paper argues that the concepts, beliefs and understandings of local and non-local teacher educators in a Hong Kong university are grounded in their own cultural cognition and antecedents. It presents the viewpoint that contemporary notions of good practice were compromised when applied to a context that is strongly influenced by the tenets of Confucianism. Thus the conclusion is that the contingencies of teaching and learning contexts are sufficiently different to compromise the goal of having pre-constructed notions of good teaching. The alternative is that university tutors and future researchers re-conceptualise good teaching practices within a context that gives it meaning and purpose. (Contains 1 table.)
