About this book

This international handbook provides a sophisticated re-examination of self-study of teaching and teacher education practices research 16 years after the publication of the first edition by Springer (2004). Through six sections, it offers an extensive international review of research and practices by examining critical issues in the self-study field today. They are: (1) Foundations of Self-Study, (2) Self-Study Methods and Methodologies, (3) Self-Study and Teaching and Teacher Education for Social Justice, (4) Self-Study Across Subject Disciplines, (5) Self-Study in Teacher Education and Beyond, and (6) Self-Study across Cultures and Languages. Exemplars, including many recent studies, illustrate the impact of this well-established research movement in teacher education in the English-speaking world and internationally. Readers of the handbook will benefit from a comprehensive review of the field of self-study that is accessible to a range of readers; theoretically and methodologically rich; highly practical to both novices and experienced practitioners; and offers a vision for self-study internationally over the next two decades.

About the authors

Dr. Julian Kitchen is a professor in the faculty of education at Brock University. He is the lead editor of Mindful and Relational Approaches to Social Justice, Equity and Diversity in Teacher Education, Narrative Inquiries into Curriculum-making in Teacher Education, Self-Study and Diversity II, and Canadian Perspectives on the Self-Study of Teacher Education Practices. In addition, he is the author of Relational Teacher Education and lead author of Professionalism, Law and the Ontario Educator. Professor Kitchen is co-editor of Studying Teacher Education journal and editor for Springer’s Self-Study of Teaching and Teacher Education Practices series.

Professor Amanda Berry’s work focuses on the development of teachers’ knowledge and the ways in which that knowledge is shaped and articulated through teacher preparation, beginning teaching, and in-service learning. A key interest in Amanda’s research is the question of educator professionalism, its content, as well as its conceptualization. In line with the international movement of the Self-Study of Teacher Educator Practices (S-STEP), Amanda’s research concerns the ways in which teachers’ learning can be studied from an insider perspective, as a means of enabling and empowering teachers and developing collectively understood knowledge of practice. Amanda has published extensively in the above areas, including books, handbook chapters, international journals, and academic texts. She is current editor of the journal Studying Teacher Education, an international journal of self-study; former Chair of the American Education Special Interest Group in Self-Study of Teacher Education Practices; and Associate Editor of the journal, Research in Science Education.
Dr. Shawn Michael Bullock is a Reader in the History of Science, Technology and Education at the University of Cambridge, UK, and a Bye-Fellow at Emmanuel College, also at the University of Cambridge. He first became interested in self-study methodology in his doctoral work with Professor Tom Russell at Queen’s University, Canada, and has developed his understanding of self-study methodology through active participation in the community and via academic appointments at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology and Simon Fraser University, Canada, before taking up his current positions at Cambridge. Shawn is particularly interested in the ways in which self-study methodology sheds light on the relationship between disciplinary knowledge and knowledge of teaching, the ways in which knowledge is constructed via experiences of learning and teaching, and the role of personal history in developing a pedagogy of teacher education. Outside of self-study, he uses the lenses offered by the history and philosophy of science and technology to examine issues in education. Shawn’s diverse academic interests are partly reflected by his elected Fellowships to the Royal Astronomical Society, the Royal Geographical Society, and the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce.
