Teacher Learning Research: A Critical Overview

Chapter

Abstract

Teacher learning is deemed as the most useful way for teacher professional development, especially on INSET course. Based on analysing two mostly accepted perspectives of teacher learning, an integrated perspective to look at the teachers’ learning in this empirical study is formed as the theoretical lens to explore what and how the teachers learn. Since teacher learning for change is inevitably related to cognitive change and practical application, two concepts—teacher knowledge and teacher beliefs—are discussed together with their relationship with practice.

Keywords

Teacher learning Cognitive change Situated learning Integrated perspective Teacher knowledge Teacher belief
