Description

This book presents inservice teacher educators' accounts of systematic inquiry into their practice in a variety of contexts throughout New Zealand. The importance of purposeful networks of practice at all levels of a system in supporting education change and improvement is a theme across the chapters.The contributors describe the challenges and successes associated with working in professional learning and development in ways that aim to improve outcomes for teacher educators, teachers and students. Their accounts illuminate the importance of a research and development approach that enables the generation and application of new knowledge and, more importantly, enables all contributors to be learners. Each of the authors describes their role in investigating the effectiveness of inservice teacher educator practice, as part of the overall project that endeavoured to improve practice for the future. Included are processes created for M?ori (indigenous) settings where cultural metaphors were used to frame investigations of practice.The book makes an important contribution to our knowledge base about effective inservice teacher educator practice and its influence on classroom practice.
