Learning to learn through professional experiences

    Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter

    Abstract

    Professional experience is central in teacher preparation. In Teaching and Communicating, your students are equipped with the skills and knowledge needed to make the most of this experience. This user-friendly guide demonstrates how pre-service teachers, supervisors, mentors, and academics involved in school and field placement can be collectively engaged in professional experience contexts that are both dynamic and diverse. It provides opportunities for participants in the professional experience process to consider the complex nature of communication, to develop skills on how communication processes should be enacted, and to consider the broader education community. It also provides your students with practical advice on how to improve assessment by offering ideas about report writing, journal keeping and assignment delivery.
