At the ATEE Conference in Budapest in August, we presented our early findings from a research project we’re currently undertaking in which we aim to identify the range of learning theories used in teacher education programmes for the post 14 sector and to establish the factors that underpin teacher educators’ choice of theories to use in their work with trainee teachers. Through the project we also hope to identify more culturally diverse perspectives on learning that will enrich our teacher education curriculum.
To help us with our research, we would be very grateful if you could complete the survey linked below. Having a broad range of perspectives would make a huge difference to our study. We intend to disseminate the outcome of our research as widely as possible in the near future.
