Bewitched, bothered and bewildered: “A small heroic everyday epic” of teacher education in a digital age

Avril Loveless

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceeding with ISSN or ISBNChapter

Abstract

This is an original story, analysing an account of teacher education that draws together theoretical threads of the conceptual depth of teacher knowledge; the contextual scope of culture and power in a digital age; and the pedagogic reach of didactic analysis rooted in the human condition. The method of storytelling is autoethnographic, choosing moments of a life history to offer an analysis of a story of action in a theory of context, making sense of our time from a personal story in a wider picture. It suggests features that are refracted through transition and transformation, linked with concepts of scripted and improvised self-formation. It offers reflections on the depth, scope and reach of my finding my way as a teacher educator of 30 years: - becoming more knowledgeable in my field, more accomplished in my pedagogy, and somewhat wiser in the context of teacher education in my time and place.
