Ryan, Mary; Bourke, Terri; Lunn Brownlee, Jo; Rowan, Leonie; Walker, Sue; Churchward, Peter – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2019
The recasting of teaching as a technical enterprise rather than as a space for intelligent problem-solving means that governments around the world will continue to pursue agendas to regulate and prescribe teacher education. Teacher education reform has been attempted for over 30 years in many countries around the world, yet the crucial priority of…

McGrath, Kevin F.; Van Bergen, Penny – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2019
Disruptive student behaviour is a major concern for teachers, causing classroom conflict and emotional fatigue. Whilst student-teacher closeness is known to reduce student aggression and improve behaviour, it is not yet known why some teachers experience close relationships with disruptive students and others do not. This qualitative study…

Ng, Clarence; Leicht, Alysse – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2019
Teacher change involves the transformation of beliefs, knowledge and practices. While research has highlighted significant facilitative conditions as well as barriers to these changes, insufficient attention has been devoted to examining influences derived from existing practices perpetuated by institutional factors and teachers' personal…

Lowe, Geoffrey; Gray, Christina; Prout, Peter; Jefferson, Sarah; Shaw, Therese – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2019
Since the mid-1980s, the working lives of teachers has become an enduring research topic. Much research has focused on early-career teachers and is often reported from deficit positions, i.e. why they leave the profession. However, career trajectory studies have described a small cohort of veteran teachers who remain positive and committed to…

Alterator, Scott; Deed, Craig; Prain, Vaughan – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2018
Given current extensive expectations of how teachers should excel, any attempt to summarize teacher expertise in action in the second decade of this century may seem at best misguided. However, this has not stopped teacher educators offering diverse metaphoric encapsulations that aim both to distil and prescribe quality teacher practice. In this…

Hopkins, Sarah Lisa; Round, Penny Norma; Barley, Karen Dawn – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2018
Inclusive education requires restructuring educational provision so that mainstream schools are able to provide for the needs of all students in their communities. To help realise this goal, initial teacher education programmes need to better prepare new graduates for teaching students with complex special education needs, including students with…

Enhancing resilience is key to reducing teacher attrition and addressing the challenges of the profession but scant research exists on resilience in regional and remote settings, where there is a shortage of quality, specialist and lead teachers. The aim of this study was to combine ecological and relational perspectives on resilience to examine…

Clinton, Janet; Dawson, Georgia – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2018
Educational reform in Australia recognizes the need for an effective teacher evaluation system but has fallen short of actually prescribing one. Current practice does not align to policy intent, with teacher evaluation largely an exercise in compliance around performance management as opposed to a process that promotes evaluative thinking,…

Mitchell, Ian; Keast, Stephen; Panizzon, Debra; Mitchell, Judie – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2017
Organising teaching of a topic around a small number of "big ideas" has been argued by many to be important in teaching for deep understanding, with big ideas being able to link different activities and to be framed in ways that provide perceived relevance and routes into engagement. However it is our view that, at present, the…

Mathewson Mitchell, Donna; Reid, Jo-Anne – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2017
Contemporary research conversations about the utility of practice theories to professional education support the reconceptualisation of pre-service teacher education in ways that provide strong preparation for continued professional learning. This paper reports on an empirical inquiry that introduced a theoretically informed practice-based…

In my experiment, I applied the concepts of third space and hybrid identity as a theoretical…

Sheridan, Lynn; Young, Marie – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2017
This study confirms the role of genuine conversation as the enabler in good mentoring of pre-service teachers. The practicum plays an essential role in moving the pre-service teacher beyond learning about teaching to the practice of teaching. Yet the benefit of the practicum is often constrained by relational tensions, disappointment and…

Willis, Jill; Crosswell, Leanne; Morrison, Chad; Gibson, Andrew; Ryan, Mary – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2017
Many early-career teachers (ECTs) begin their teaching careers in rural and remote schools in Australia, and do not stay long, with consequences for their own lives, and for their students, schools and communities. By understanding how first-year ECTs navigate personal (subjective) and contextual (objective) conditions, opportunities to disrupt…
