We identify four different periods to represent this relationship based on our analysis of national committee and evaluation reports. Theory and practice gradually converged, culminating in a research-based…

Feryok, Anne; Pryde, Michael – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2012
Conceptualizations of teacher knowledge have shifted to focusing on the role of experiential rather than theoretical knowledge. There are different approaches to this, but the idea of an image that guides practice is widespread. One approach to images that has not been frequently investigated in studies of second language teachers is through…

Chan Fong Yee, Fanny – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2014
Teaching and research are two inseparable components in higher education. There are continuous debates about the relationship between the two.

This paper critically examines the impact of current policy on the two academic practices and discusses how it shapes one's professional…

The "T-MEDIA" project analysed and documented how teachers exploit the use of projection technologies--data projectors and interactive whiteboards (IWBs)--to support learning in secondary-school subject lessons. The research involved collaboration between university researchers and four pairs of UK teachers (of English, mathematics,…

Hall, Elaine – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2009
The connection between teacher inquiry, professional development and school improvement was recognised 30 years ago by Lawrence Stenhouse. Stenhouse contributed many valuable insights into the role of practitioner enquiry in creating and utilising knowledge about teaching and learning, much of which is still to be applied systematically in teacher…

Baumfield, Vivienne; Butterworth, Marie – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2007
Whilst there is a growing body of literature on practitioner research and the role of collaborations and partnerships that include universities in that process, there are relatively few studies examining the role of the university in any depth. We reflect on 12 years of working in school-university collaborative research partnerships through an…

Craig, Cheryl J. – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2007
This article connects teachers' experiences of reflective school portfolio development to the idea of teachers' knowledge communities, the different groups and individuals with whom teachers negotiate meaning for their stories of experience, lived and told, and re-lived and re-told, over time. The reflective analysis makes the case that the…

Mockler, Nicole – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2011
Drawing on previous research that focused upon the formation and mediation of teacher professional identity, this paper develops a model for conceptualising teacher professional identity. Increasingly, technical-rational understandings of teachers' work and "role" are privileged in policy and public discourse over more nuanced and holistic…

The purpose of this study is to investigate the nature of student-teachers' learning practices in primary school chemistry classroom contexts. Its theoretical approach is based on the sociocultural view of learning and development, which holds a conception of the learner as a cultural and historical subject, embedded within and constituted by a…

Bertone, Stefano; Chalies, Sebastien; Flavier, Eric – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2009
This article explores teacher training by the alternation of classroom work and work analysis using an approach based on a social conception of meaning and action. The advantage of this approach is that it allows the development of professional activity in preservice teachers (PTs) to be assessed by tracking how the reflective tools acquired in…

Black-Hawkins, Kristine; Florian, Lani – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2012
Whilst recent decades have seen significant progress in research on inclusive education, many teachers still feel that the research literature does not fully address their professional concerns about how to enact a policy of inclusion in their classrooms. To help to bridge this gap, we drew on the concept of craft knowledge to undertake a detailed…

Gnadinger, Cindy Meyers – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2008
Peer collaboration has been supported in research as an effective instructional strategy. However, education researchers lack a full understanding of the types of scaffolding that take place in peer groups. Little research is available that documents what happens during the small group interactions. This case study took place in one teacher's…
