"Nearly graduated" student teachers and "newly graduated" teachers: Responsibility, collaboration and learning in relation to teacher education and professional work as a teacher
2008 (English)In: The European Conference on Educational Research,2008, 2008Conference paper (Refereed)
The aim of this paper is to assess how student teachers and new teachers, view their educational programme and the professional work as a teacher with special regard to learning, responsibility and collaboration. The results reflect differences in the dominating pattern between the two groups of how some of the crucial aspects of a professional teacher role are perceived. The results varied from a vague and unarticulated view of the concepts, to a multi-dimensional understanding of their relevance for the teacher role. Two overarching ways of contextualising the concepts are discernible; educational context orientation and work life context orientation.
