Series: Routledge Research in Teacher Education
Research-Informed Teacher Learning explores career-long improvements in knowledge building and the skills required in curriculum reform, transformations in teaching methods, alterations to assessment, and restructurings in school administration and management. It pinpoints ways that practitioners benefit by actively participating in the development of their own professional activities at all levels of teaching service.
The book mainly focuses on the professionals working in teaching and teacher education from pre-service training and development through early-mid career and into later stages of career mobility. It pinpoints the ways that practitioners need to be involved in the design and delivery of changing models of teacher education which helps in the development of their own professional activities at all levels of the teaching service. Dedicated to late Professor Carey Philpott, the book takes his ideas forward, particularly in the current conjuncture when teacher learning is curtailed and constrained by power brokers, politicians, policy makers in various undemocratic ways.
This book will be of great interest for academics and researchers in the fields of teacher education, educational policy and politics, and lifelong learning and development.
