A Values, Skills and Knowledge Framework for Initial Teacher Preparation Programmes
Chong, Sylvia; Cheah, Horn Mun
Australian Journal of Teacher Education, v34 n3 p1-17 Jun 2009
The purpose of this paper is to introduce an integrated values, skills and knowledge (VSK) framework for initial teacher preparation programmes. The VSK framework articulated, in broad terms, the desired skills and knowledge components for beginning teachers, with the underlying core values permeating the programmes. The paper has two parts, the first of which details the development as well as the conceptual underpinning of the VSK framework. Part two, through a programme evaluation, discusses the validity and reliability of items developed through the VSK framework to measure the values, skills and knowledge that student teachers perceived through their initial teacher preparation programme. (Contains 10 tables and 1 figure.)
