Thesis in teacher education: research orientation and professional relevance
2005 (English)Report (Other academic)
One aim of this project was to integrate research orientation and professional relevance in teacher education, in relation to educational theory, thesis writing and future work. Another aim was to develop models for group-supervision to let students participate in discussions about their work, which was expected to promote student influence and development of analytic thinking. Data were collected by means of a questionnaire before the students started working on their thesis. Supervisors’ notes from group supervision were collected after their series of meetings.
The students claim that the thesis gives them new knowledge and skills which are important in their profession. It has also improved the overall quality of their education. The thesis work, as well as group supervision, when students’ needs are considered, facilitates student influence.
