Ertsas, Turid I.; Irgens, Eirik J. – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2017
In this conceptual article, we draw on a graded theory concept as well as two exemplary cases to discuss the role of professional theorizing in teachers' practice. We present a model that can illustrate how a non-dichotomous, graded and processual understanding of theory may help overcome a split between theory, on the one hand, and practice, on…

Bowe, Julie; Gore, Jennifer – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2017

While the corrective move to more collaborative models of professional learning has been heralded, few empirical studies to date…

Yet the benefit of the practicum is often constrained by relational tensions, disappointment and…
