Berry, Amanda; Forgasz, Rachel – Studying Teacher Education, 2018
This article is inspired simultaneously by the metaphor of professional knowledge landscapes and our experiences of the transformative potential of self-study methodology.

Whipp, Peter R.; Salin, Kasper – Social Psychology of Education: An International Journal, 2018
Studies related to reasons why teachers stay are far less frequent than those reporting reasons to leave. This study assessed the factors that satisfied PE teachers and the motivators to stay in PE teaching. Physical educator "stayers" (N = 139) responded to a 'PE Teachers' Career Intentions Questionnaire', 'Basic Satisfaction Needs at…

Nicholas, Maria; Wells, Muriel – Asia-Pacific Journal of Teacher Education, 2017
Research into the experiences of casual relief teachers (CRTs) (substitute or supply teachers) across Australia and internationally has reported feelings of marginalisation among participants. These findings are concerning when one considers that students might be in the care of CRTs for an equivalent of 1 year or more throughout their schooling.…

te Riele, Kitty; Mills, Martin; McGregor, Glenda; Baroutsis, Aspa – Teaching Education, 2017
The affective dimension of teachers' work is a vital element in shaping inclusive, child-centred classrooms. It is particularly important for students who lack certain aspects of care and support within their personal lives. Recently, neoliberal educational paradigms of data gathering, external testing and competition have increased pressure upon…

Laletas, Stella – British Journal of Guidance & Counselling, 2019
For professional school counsellors who work in secondary schools, ethical issues arise more often than in other practice settings. While ethical codes and guidelines provide guidance in decision making, a reliance on ethical principles may still leave professionals open to criticism since such principles can be interpreted to suit the situation.…

Leggett, Nicole; Newman, Linda – European Early Childhood Education Research Journal, 2019

Bexley, Emmaline; Arkoudis, Sophie; James, Richard – Higher Education: The International Journal of Higher Education and Educational Planning, 2013
The Australian academic profession is more differentiated than is acknowledged in national and institutional policies and academic roles are more diverse than many academics themselves may recognise. However, the evolution of the nature and purposes of the profession and its implicit diversification have been incremental and largely unplanned. A…

Le Cornu, Rosie – Australian Journal of Teacher Education, 2013
There are serious concerns around the sustainability of teaching given the attrition rate of early career teachers. In Western countries we know that between 25% and 40% of beginning teachers are likely to leave the teaching profession in the first 5 years (Ewing & Smith, 2003; Day & Gu, 2010). Clearly, there is a need to better understand…

Anderson, Michelle – Educational Management Administration & Leadership, 2012
This article argues that while notions of collective leadership, such as distributed or shared, are nominally more inclusive, barriers to inclusive ways of thinking about and relating to one another will be multi-faceted (past and present) and formidable to change. This argument emanates from a critical review of research literature and an…
