Theoretical Landscapes, Practical Challenges

Series:

Pertti Kansanen, Kirsi Tirri, Matti Meri, Leena Krokfors and Jukka Husu

Teachers' Pedagogical Thinking challenges teachers and teacher educators to consider teachers’ work from various points of view. The most recent research on teachers’ thinking is used in building the theoretical framework for these concrete case studies. In these empirical studies, teachers’ thinking is studied in different contexts, including teachers’ mind sets, moral issues, rules, recipes of good teaching, and the supervision process. Teachers' pedagogical thinking is explored in the framework of making educational decisions by analyzing teachers’ arguments and justifications for their practice. The book offers both theoretical and practical knowledge on teaching. It can be used as a textbook in teacher education or as an updated research report on teacher thinking.
