Flights from the field and the plight of teacher education: a personal perspective Academic Article uri icon


  • This self-study of my role in teacher education examines events in my career, using Schwab's deliberations on 'the practical' as an interpretive tool with which to broaden, burrow, and re-story my personal experiences. Through reflecting inward and outward, backward and forward, I connect specific episodes I encountered in my career with Schwab's explication of 'the practical'. In the final analysis, my self-study reveals the seeds of a small renaissance: a change not only in the way teacher education is approached in my university, but also in how I think about it and participate in it. 2009 Taylor & Francis.
