Gallagher, Tiffany; Griffin, Shelley; Parker, Darlene Ciuffetelli; Kitchen, Julian; Figg, Candace
Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies, v27 n5 p880-890 Jul 2011
This paper outlines the professional development of pre-tenure teacher educators through the establishment of a self-study group. Through reflecting on three significant events, a discussion is offered as to how members contributed to the self-study of teacher education practices and experienced enhancement as a community of scholars. Evidence is presented as to how pre-tenure faculty can work together to build a culture that links teaching practice to scholarship within an organizational framework for group interactions. This work contributes to research on the induction of new professors by providing a model of professional development that is self-directed, collaborative, and empowering.
