This book advances a new framework for learning to teach, using in-depth case studies to show how learning to teach—in any type of program—can best be understood as a recursive and dynamic process, wherein teachers differentially access programmatic, relational, experiential, disciplinary, and dispositional resources. In the last twenty years, debates in the field of teacher preparation have increasingly become paralyzing and divisive as rhetoric around the failure of university teacher preparation intensifies. The author addresses the historical and practical factors that animate these debates, arguing that novice teachers and teacher educators must understand the central conflicts in the field; however, the book also advances a way of approaching learning to teach that accounts for but does not get stuck at the level of programmatic designation. Using lively, in-depth case studies, the author shows how novice urban English teachers from two different teacher preparation pathways—a university-based program and an urban teacher residency—learn to teach within a policy context of high-stakes testing and “college readiness.”

This book considers if and how oral history is ‘best practice’ for education. International scholars, practitioners, and teachers consider conceptual approaches, methodological limitations, and pedagogical possibilities of oral history education.

This book provides the first comprehensive assessment of oral history education – inclusive of oral tradition, digital storytelling, family histories, and testimony – within the context of 21st century schooling. By addressing the significance of oral history for education, this book seeks to expand education’s capacity for teaching and learning about the past.

The concept, use and experience of 'space' in higher education have a deep influence on students and teachers. Reframing Space for Learning uniquely explores space as both a 'learning place' that may be physical, virtual, in work or in the field, and a 'belonging space' in which all learners can learn, engage, and develop individually and collectively. It describes and analyses how a number of National Teaching Fellows have developed innovative ways of using of place and space for learning across disciplines in higher education. In so doing, they provide practical ideas, inspiration and solutions for practitioners responsible for delivering learning in spaces within and outside universities, nationally and internationally. The National Teaching Fellowship scheme, awarded by the UK's Higher Education Academy, celebrates and recognizes individuals who have made an outstanding impact on student outcomes and the student profession in higher education.
