Policy and politics in teacher education : international perspectives by John Furlong( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le site de l'éditeur indique : "During the last 20 years, governments around the world have paid increasing attention to the recruitment, preparation, and retention of teachers. Teacher supply and teacher quality have become significant policy issues, taken up by policy-makers at the highest levels. This is because teachers are now seen by many governments as the 'lynch-pin' of educational, economic and social reform. This volume grew out of a recognition by the Editors of the growing significance of teacher education policy and a curiosity about international trends and differences. The book brings together nine papers from leading academics around the world: from the UK (England and Scotland), the USA, Australia, Singapore and Belgium, plus a joint paper comparing Namibia and the USA. Taken together, the papers reveal the complexities and contradictions of international trends. On the one hand, they demonstrate that there is indeed a common direction of travel along the lines encouraged by international bodies such as the OECD. At the same time however, the papers also reveal important differences among countries in terms of how they are addressing common aspirations as well as some apparent contradictions within the policies of individual nations."
Re-positioning university governance and academic work( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines changing ways that academic work is governed - from outside and inside universities - in the shifting social, cultural and political contexts of new times. Chapters trace developments in institutions, national sectors, and internationally - all applying a global scope to identify significant shifts in the broader conditions of university operation. Attention is given to governance processes across all key domains of academic work: teaching, research, leadership, management and institutional organisation. Key trends are analysed, including risk management, audit culture, league tables, techniques of accountability, and more. These investigations bring forth re-conceptions of university 'governance' as involving increasingly distributed and networked arrays of mechanisms, affecting academic work practices, relations, values, emotional labours and identities. Ambiguities, tensions and complexities of academic work are explored; and questions are raised as to whether prevailing managerial modes of governance can address these features of university engagement with globalising contexts.

The Dimensions of Reflection: A Conceptual and Contextual Analysis by Susan E Noffke( Book )

2 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper attempts to fill some of the gaps in the literature (on reflective teaching), delving further into the meaning and functions of reflection. First, it considers the origins of the term and some aspects of its development. It then analyzes and critiques some of the current notions of reflection. Beginning the process of a more rigorous assessment of the rationale and assumptions of various approaches, the paper uses as its focus the pre-service education program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and critiques the usefulness of various conceptions in facilitating a better understanding and more enlightened and strategic action on the part of teachers and student teachers. Various contextual problems are then introduced, outlining the conflicting aims in the uses of'reflection' in teaching, and theoretic issues are raised. The final section offers an alternative way of understanding the process of reflection, one which begins to address some of the problems of current interpretations. (Jd)

The struggle for teacher education : international perspectives on governance and reforms by Tom Are Trippestad( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Reform of teacher education is en vogue worldwide today due to the widespread belief that teacher education has the power to change traditional modes of schooling, educating new teachers who will be capable of improving the knowledge standard of children and boost the economic power of nations. The Struggle for Teacher Education brings together conceptual, comparative and empirical studies from Australia, Chile, England, Finland, The Netherlands, Norway and South Africa to explore the ways in which professional education has been positioned in a reactive mode. The contributors discuss how teacher education is a contested division in higher education and look at how current reform efforts may limit the potential and work of teacher education, highlighting why this point needs more attention. Moreover, the collection reveals how teacher education's authorship on teacher professionalism may be weakened or strengthened by current reform drives and offers alternative models on how to rethink reforming teacher education."--
