Developing Teacher Researchers

Knowledge, professionalism and identity

By Sue Brindley

Edited by: Ian Menter

Teacher research is increasingly a focus of policy at both national and international levels and is integral to effective initial teacher education and continuing professional development. Yet, within these debates, the teacher's voice often remains unheard. As professional interests are increasingly overwhelmed by policy demands, teachers are left with little opportunity to move outside an agenda of compliance. In this volume, the teacher's voice is at the forefront of the narrative. What do teachers understand by developing teacher knowledge? What is the place of teacher research in professionalism? How do these factors impact on teacher identity? The book encourages the development of an informed, critical, research-based discourse and enables teacher educators to demonstrate how teacher research can inform and shape the professional lives of both new and experienced teachers in ways which enhance and develop their careers. *** Librarians: ebook available (Series: Critical Guides for Teacher Education) [Subject: Education]
