10 SES 06 B, Narrative and Visual Methods in Teacher Education Research
In the ongoing project we focus on the improvement of teacher qualifications by challenging the novice teacher students to consciously process their own stories and experiences. Teacher educators typically ignore the novice’s prior knowledge. Prior knowledge could serve as a filter through which the students respond to teacher education (Bullough,1991, Brandsford, 2000). Our aim is to improve teacher qualifications by challenging the beginner student’s experiences and to raise the students’ awareness of key experiences from their previous years in school. We have found narratives and metaphors to be appropriate for the articulation of student’s often tacit knowledge.
In our presentation we will differentiate between two perspectives. First, present narratives as a tool in our research. Findings will be presented below. Secondly, investigate how basic values and perspective in the student narratives could be transformed or strengthen through an inquiry process the first semester (a study in progress). To develop a professional identity implies to look back into the past but also to imagine the future. In the here and now situation the past and the future comes together (Augustin 2009). A narrative approach embraces both the private and the professional identity of a teacher. The two part of the identity ought to be well integrated (Grevholm 2014).
