Kindergarten Teacher Students' Experiences of Value Conflicts in Kindergartens as Educational Institutions
Torsteinson, Helene
Online Submission, Universal Journal of Educational Research v7 n3A p22-30 2019
According to the national guidelines for kindergarten teacher education in Norway, university campus-based teaching and practical training in in-service kindergartens are two mutually complementary learning arenas that facilitate student professional learning and development. This paper "gives voice" to first-year students regarding their experiences of practical training in kindergartens. The students' stories focus on conflicts between their own values and those presented during campus-based teaching as they experienced them in in-service kindergartens. This paper discusses how these can be handled at the institution levels of the campus and in-service kindergartens that are responsible for students' professional and personal growth.
