Two initial teacher educators - two different stories?
Roden, J. and Vincent, K. 2012. Two initial teacher educators - two different stories?
|Authors||Roden, J. and Vincent, K.|
This paper arose out of a Primary Education Department day at Canterbury Christ Church University that focused on reflective practice regarding revalidation of an undergraduate programme of Initial Teacher Education (ITE). Individually, we were asked, as an experienced and a less experienced member of the faculty to consider our experiences of teaching in Initial Teacher Education (ITE). The purpose was to promote reflection and discussion amongst other members of the department as a vehicle for discussion leading to curriculum development of the programme.
The paper draws on the power of the narrative, which requires individuals to reflect on aspects of their lives. This paper shares our stories. We present an examination of the ways that we see our experiences and how they were for us. One story focuses on the experiences of transition from school to University whilst the other explores perceptions through aspects of life story. Aspects of good practice in ITE are reflected upon based on this experience as a long serving member of the Faculty of Education.
