TEAN Webinars

Student Teachers and Research: Keeping the focus person-centred


Thursday March 9th 4.30pm Presenter: Dr Gillian Peiser Chair: Dr Pippa Leslie

How do we engage student teachers in developing research-informed practice? How significant are their personal and emotional epistemologies? How may these differ according to previous (academic) experiences? This webinar will briefly present key findings from a recent study (Peiser, Pratt & Putwain, 2022) to provoke discussion and sharing of practice by participants.
