Technical and Vocational Teaching and Training in Gabon: How Future Teachers Build Their Vocational Identity?
Nze, Jean Sylvain Bekale; Ginestie, Jacques
International Journal of Technology and Design Education, v22 n3 p399-416 Aug 2012
The professionalism of teachers is based on three levels of expertise: mastering academic knowledge, mastering the teaching of this knowledge and mastering the role played by teachers in schools. For each of these levels, each student during the teacher training courses has his own understanding. This understanding influences their perception of the job of teacher and thus their attitude towards their training. Efficiency of this training could be evaluated through the evolution of this understanding. The experimental part of this study will involve looking at this evolution with students from the ENSET in Libreville at the beginning of the training course, the end of the first cycle and the end of the second cycle. Data collected shows that training does not really produce the desired results for a university vocational teacher training course for technology education.
