Seeking Knowledge for Teaching Teaching: Moving beyond Stories
Loughran, John
Studying Teacher Education, v6 n3 p221-226 Nov 2010
Recognizing and documenting problems in practice and engaging in self-study are not necessarily the same thing. Acting on the problems, issues or concerns that attract attention in teaching and learning about teaching requires an acceptance of the need to seek alternative perspectives and to seek data that is outside of the self. It is in the reporting of self-study that the complexities and interrelationships between research and practice can inadvertently be overlooked or lost. Therefore, paying careful attention to what shapes a self-study is an important factor in reporting on self-study and this distinction between doing and reporting requires careful and ongoing attention.
