Teachers’ understandings of their relationships with students : pedagogic connectedness
Beutel, Denise (2009) Teachers’ understandings of their relationships with students : pedagogic connectedness. The International Journal of Learning, 16(3), pp. 507-518.
This paper reports on a doctoral study that explored the nature of pedagogic connectedness and revealed the ways in which teachers experience this phenomenon. Pedagogic connectedness is defined as the engagements between teacher and student that impact on student learning. In this study, twenty teachers in an independent college in South-East Queensland, Australia, were interviewed and the interview transcripts analysed iteratively. Five qualitatively different ways of experiencing pedagogic connectedness emerged from the data. The findings of this phenomenographic-related study are instructive in developing a framework for changes to teachers’ pedagogic practices.
