Accessing practical knowledge: how? why?
Alternative forms of representation were employed to generate new insights into the knowledge teachers use to inform practice. Conversation, drawing, metaphor, and story writing encouraged a group of teachers to make multiple probes into their ways of knowing how to manage the complexities of many everyday teaching situations. 'Sandy's Story', and comments from other teachers, illustrate how these methods can enhance efforts to understand the ways that personal images enter into teaching decisions. Why teachers and researchers ought to inquire into this aspect of knowing how to teach is examined.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
