Daniel, Leah – Asia-Pacific Journal of Teacher Education, 2018
Teacher educators need to better understand how pre-service teachers make decisions that lead them to enact particular content knowledge in their lessons.

Shann, Steve – Asia-Pacific Journal of Teacher Education, 2015
A pre-service teacher clashes with his mentor and the practicum ends badly. There is distress and a sense of failure all round. Questions get asked. Was the pre-service teacher simply unsuited to this demanding profession? Was the teacher education inadequate? Was the mentor a good fit? Were there the right kinds of support in place? Was the…

Lambert, David; Biddulph, Mary – Asia-Pacific Journal of Teacher Education, 2015
There is widespread system response to the perceived needs of education for twenty-first century, where learning-to-learn is privileged and schools are organised to prepare young people for work. One casualty of such skills-led teaching is deep thinking about curriculum questions and the knowledge contents of teaching in relation to the needs,…

Shann, Steve; Germantse, Hannah; Pittard, Libby; Cunneen, Rachel – Asia-Pacific Journal of Teacher Education, 2014
Margaret Somerville has suggested that a new methodology of postmodern emergence might allow researchers to disrupt the taken-for-granted and provide fresh insight into familiar problems.

Säfström, Carl Anders – Asia-Pacific Journal of Teacher Education, 2014
In this text, which was originally delivered as a speech, I discuss the massive critique of teachers in the public discourse on education in Sweden over the last decade. I speak in defence of teachers, and since I am a teacher I speak in defence of myself. The critique of teachers, schooling, and teacher education has been so overbearing that a…

Harrison, Neil – Asia-Pacific Journal of Teacher Education, 2012
This paper applies the work of Jacques Lacan, a French psychoanalyst, to decipher the desire of the teacher in Aboriginal education. It argues that the images of Aboriginal people represented in Australian classrooms are effects of the teacher's Imaginary, the Imaginary being one of the three psychoanalytic domains theorised by Lacan over a period…

Garrett, Robyne; Wrench, Alison – Asia-Pacific Journal of Teacher Education, 2012
The body is a powerful symbolic form and all bodily activities are expressions of culture. The look, size, shape and physicality of bodies are perceived by all and compared to particular cultural standards. In this way the body is inscribed with culture and can serve as a site for social control. Various discourses of the body, including those…
