Brownlee, Joanne , Berthelsen, Donna C., & Boulton-Lewis, Gillian M. (2009) Towards self-authorship in child care students : implications for working with children and their families. In Refining Understanding of the Development and Assessment of Self-Authorship. Stylus Press.
Using self authorship as a theoretical framework, this chapter examines the relationship between personal epistemology and beliefs about children’s learning for students studying to be child care workers in Australia. Scenario-based interviews were used to investigate how students’ views of knowledge, identity and relationships with others were related to beliefs about how children learn. Implications for vocational education are discussed.
