Teacher Educator Dilemmas: A Concept to Study Pedagogy
Cabaroglu, Nese; Tillema, Harm H.
Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, v17 n5 p559-573 2011
To disclose the inner process of teacher educators' dealing with their different roles and their coping with conflicting demands, the study of dilemmas encountered in practice may offer a promising perspective. Building on previous research on teaching dilemmas, this study uses a comparative approach to disclose teacher educators' views on pedagogy. Qualitative interview data from within the Turkish context are contrasted with datasets from Israel and The Netherlands to gauge common notions on the pedagogy of teaching student teachers. The findings indicate shared dilemmas across contexts acting as key constraints to the teaching of teacher educators, which are mainly related to implementing pedagogy, while differences across contexts found mainly had to do with orientations and views on teaching. In this respect, the concept of dilemmas is a fruitful way of disclosing these constraints and perspectives. (Contains 3 tables.)
