Learning to Teach: A Self-Study of a New Teacher Educator's Introductory Education Course
Donnell, Kelly
Studying Teacher Education, v6 n3 p227-234 Nov 2010
This two-year self-study explores my experiences as a new teacher educator learning to teach in an introductory foundations course. I was interested in better understanding how and what I can learn from the complexity of my early teaching. As my Freirian orientation to transformational learning was challenged, two key themes emerged: developing voice, and the tension between accountability and authenticity. I learned about recognizing the implications of modeling practice for students and of speaking up and out (or not), as well as coming to terms with the self-reproof associated with the incongruence between my intentions and my actions.
