Reimagine the School Research in Teacher Education and the Concept of Teaching

2015-05-20 09:30,2015-05-20 15:00
A day of reflection organized by Education and Teacher Education at Södertörn University

Om konferensen

The department of Education together with the Teacher Education at Södertörn University organizes a day of reflection over some central educational concepts. These concepts are as ordinary as they are complex, and we all to often take them for granted: the school, research in teacher education, and the concept of teaching.

AffischOver the last decade, textbooks in various courses at teacher education programmes at universities and university colleges have either been dominated by socio-cultural theories on learning, or been without any vision of its own about what constitutes teacher education. Teacher education, when taken seriously, is a truly multi-disciplinary milieu with a strong interest in educational phenomena for the benefit of students, teachers, and researchers alike. As long as there have been universities there have been one or another form of education of teachers. So, this day of reflection offered is also about the celebration of what teacher education truly is – an intellectual endeavour both older and larger than the sum of its parts.
