Reflections on Teacher Education in the Four Nations of the United Kingdom
[A]ny education system, at any given point in time, is a combination of the past, the present and the future. The past is represented through aims and values, and the mode of working and expectations of the teaching force. For many teachers, the defining years are those in which they are trained and first enter the profession. (Le Métais, 1997:4)The aim of this ESCalate funded research was to collect some commentary on the ‘defining years’,...

Social Justice in Workspaces
The sights, sounds and smells of education conferences rarely change; smart clothes, clutches of headed paper, microphones that don’t work and stewed tea, but the Castle conference was different.

Stressed at Work – Not Me?
Moderate levels of stress are a normal part of everyday life for everyone. In fact, it can be argued that short term exposure to stressful episodes are good for us, in that they briefly challenge us and thus prepare us for difficult periods in future life.

Understanding Education: back to basics
I was a failure at school but retook A-levels in my forties and achieved a good degree. Later, I found myself wanting to understand my own education and, as a Placements Tutor, that of my students. I was also fascinated by my grandchildren’s learning. Learning became the subject of my PhD thesis (Turner 2005); my research involved dialogue with students about their experiences of education,focussing on what helped and what hindered their learning

‘Now She Is Singing!’ Emergency Education in Theory and Practice
As we approached Verbovc School, its red roof and white walls stood out brightly in the April sunshine against the matt browns and greens of the surrounding fields. To the visitor, Verbovc village appeared a pastoral idyll revealing nothing to the uninformed eye of the horrors of 1999 when irregular Kosovar Serb troops and units of the regular Serbian army swept through hill village after hill village within the almost exclusively ethnic Albanian...
‘…it really feels like I have finished my studies now.’ An online exploration of learning biographies
My ESCalate funded research explored the opportunities for personal and professional reflection by engaging in a narrative enquiry in the form of learning biographies (see Domincé, 2000 and Kridel, 1998), in an online environment. The central feature was to create a temporal and physical space in a virtual environment to facilitate reflexivity. The focus on past learning experiences provides anideal opportunity to engage in reflection that...
