Supporting the Workplace Learning of Vocational and Further Education Teachers: Mentoring and beyond

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Supporting the Workplace Learning of Vocational and Further Education Teachers
Supporting the Workplace Learning of Vocational and Further Education Teachers is written to help people understand the arrangements in a workplace that enable and constrain teacher learning – and then to do something about it. It provides an accessible, research-based, and practical guide to making changes in the workplace to enable teacher learning.
The book illustrates approaches to supporting workplace learning through the extensive use of vignettes from real teachers and real teaching workplaces. With a focus on mentoring as an important component of teacher learning, it introduces the concept of a trellis of practices together with approaches for developing arrangements in the workplace that support teacher learning. It also examines the spaces between the personal and the professional and how these can become Communicative Learning Spaces where professional learning occurs.
The strategies and ideas provided in this book can be implemented at a whole-of-organisation, teaching department, small team, or individual level. An essential resource for Vocational Education and Training and Further Education teachers and managers, as well as others who support teacher learning in the workplace, this book is written to help make a difference.
