Grounding Teacher Education in Practice around the World: An Examination of Teacher Education Coursework in Teacher Education Programs in Finland, Norway, and the United States
Jenset, Inga Staal; Klette, Kirsti; Hammerness, Karen
Journal of Teacher Education, v69 n2 p184-197 Mar 2018
Worldwide, teacher educators and policy makers have called for teacher preparation that is more deeply linked to practice. Yet we know little about how such linkages are achieved within different international programs. We examine the degree to which programs provide opportunities to learn that are grounded in practice, during university coursework. We report on observation data (N = 104 hr) from the methods courses in six programs in Finland, Norway, and California. Using an analytical framework decomposing the conception of "grounding in practice" in teacher education, this article provides evidence regarding the successes and challenges of incorporating practice in teacher education.
