10 SES 13 A, Developing Adaptive Expertise in Future Teachers: International perspectives on innovations in initial teacher education
In our publication “Implications of Research on Effective Learning Environments for Initial Teacher Education” (Conner & Sliwka, 2014) we discussed the implications of the research on innovative learning environments (Dumont, Istance & Benavides 2010) for the design of initial teacher education (ITE). In this symposium, we extend this whereby each paper analyzes innovations in initial teacher education that have led to deeper learning for “adaptive expertise” (Hatano & Oura 2003; Hammerness et al. 2005; Le Fevre, Timperley & Ell 2016). Each paper presents research findings in relation to deeper learning for adaptive expertise in initial teacher education in four different countries. These include aspects such as: reflective practice and developing metacognition about learning experiences in undertaking interdisciplinary inquiry (paper from Finland), being able to make ethical, professional decisions and taking account of the principles of inclusion (paper from South Australia), participating in collaborative inquiry in professional learning communities including with teachers in primary schools for designing learning experiences within new ILEs (paper from NZ), and including more formative assessment and providing new ways of reflecting on learning (paper from Germany). The symposium papers call on theoretical models of experiential and professional practice models where each site has researched a range of ways to develop “adaptive expertise“ rather than “routine expertise” in future teachers. These are innovative learning pathways and experiences that may be quite different from past approaches in ITE. The innovations in teacher education showcased here from different countries have implications for a wide range of other international contexts. We will discuss the impact these approaches have on preparing new teachers for the challenges awaiting them in the future as they are shaped by the transformative realities of migration, diversity, digitization and by the need for more equitable and inclusive societies.
