Theory and practice in teacher education
Lidstone, John (2006) Theory and practice in teacher education. In Peklaj, C. (Ed.) Teorija in praksa v izobrazevanju uciteljev. Pedagosko izobrazevanje Filozofske fakultete, Univerza v Ljubljani, Ljubljana, Slovenia, pp. 11-18.
Any discussion about developing the curriculum to meet the demands of an emerging and continually changing world and preparing teachers to work with young people in meeting the requirements of such a curriculum, must be based on a clear understanding of theories of social change and a clear perception of how these theories should influence our current and future practices. As teachers educators, we have the double responsibility of understanding the life experiences of those who are to become the teachers of the future, as well as understanding the life experiences of those who are to be taught. Both these requirements are highly demanding of those who themselves grew up professionally in a world which although it may have been less than perfect, at least appeared to have greater stability than that in which we now live.
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.
