The Professional Identity of Teacher Educators offers a contemporary study of teacher education in a period of huge international, institutional and professional change. The book explores the experiences, understandings, and beliefs that guide the professional practices of teacher educators, and paints a picture of a profession that offers huge rewards, alongside challenges and frustrations. What are the responsibilities of the job and how does it re-shape the professional identity of those who do it, day in, day out? What are the challenges and opportunities for teacher educators arising from constantly evolving education policies? Drawing on the findings of a phenomenological study of the professional self-image and identities of pre-service teacher educators, this book provides an account of how a number of teacher educators have come to terms with their own identities as professionals at a time of considerable institutional turmoil. Moving beyond these individual stories, broader theoretical issues are also addressed: are there some distinctive but common elements that might distinguish the professional identity of the particular group we call teacher educators; and if there are, what might those characteristics be? Included in the book: identity and professional identity in teaching and teacher education investigating a professional identity the process of becoming a teacher educator teacher educators’ changing job descriptions in an era of reform the distinctive knowledge-base and expertise of teacher educators’ teacher educators’ self-image teacher educators as a community of practice. Ronnie Davey provides a unique and compelling report on cutting edge teacher education research, encapsulating the major issues associated with being a teacher educator, and how that influences and shapes teacher educators’ identity. This book will be invaluable reading for teacher educators and researchers with an interest in professional identity and teaching in Higher Education.

In Promoting Early Career Teacher Resilience the stories of 60 graduate teachers are documented as they grapple with some of the most persistent and protracted personal and professional struggles facing teachers today. Narratives emerge detailing feelings of frustration, disillusionment and even outrage as they struggle with the complexity, intensity and immediacy of life in schools. Other stories also surface to show exhilarating experiences, documenting the wonder, joy and excitement of working with young people for the first time. This book makes sense of these experiences in ways that can assist education systems, schools, and faculties of teacher education, as well as early career teachers themselves to develop more powerful forms of critical teacher resilience. Rejecting psychological explanations of teacher resilience, it endorses an alternative socio-cultural and critical approach to understanding teacher resilience. The book crosses physical borders and represents experiences of teachers in similar circumstances across the globe, providing researchers and teachers with real-life examples of resilience promoting policies and practices. This book is not written as an account of the failures of an education system, but rather as a provocation to help generate ideas, policies and practices capable of illuminating the experiences of early career teachers in more critical and socially just ways at an international and national level.

This book unpicks the complex, dynamic blend of individuals’ psychological and professional assets, workplace conditions and leadership support which enable teachers who stay in teaching to continue to make a difference in their careers, regardless of shifts in policy, workplace, professional and personal circumstances. Whilst much has been written over the years about teacher stress and burnout, there is very little research which reports on the conditions which are essential for teachers to sustain their commitment and effectiveness over their professional lives, in contexts of challenge and change. Drawing upon a range of educational, psychological, socio-cultural and neuro-scientific research, together with vivid accounts from teachers in a variety of primary and secondary schools internationally, and from their own research on teachers’ work and identities, the authors discuss the dynamic nature, forms and practices of teacher resilience. They argue that resilience in teachers is not only their ability to bounce back in extremely adverse circumstances but that it is the capacity of teachers for everyday resilience which enables them to sustain their commitment and effectiveness in responding positively to the unavoidable uncertainties inherent of their professional lives. The authors conclude that resilience in teachers can be nurtured by the intellectual, social and organisational environments in which teachers work and live, rather than being simply a personal attribute or trait, determined by nature. Resilient Teachers, Resilient Schools will be of key interest to policy makers, head teachers, teachers and training and development organisations who wish to improve quality and standards in schools.

Lifelong Learning (LLL) scheint eines der zentralen Schlagworte unserer heutigen Zeit zu sein. Unabhängig davon, ob man die Diskussionen rund um eine globalisierte Wissensgesellschaft betrachtet, sich mit den Herausforderungen zur Qualifizierung von Arbeitnehmerinnen und Arbeitnehmern auf zunehmend international gewordenen Arbeitsmärkten beschäftigt oder ob es um die Innovationskraft von Unternehmen geht – fortwährend „am Ball“ des aktuellen Wissens zu sein, ist heutzutage die Conditio sine qua non. Auch Universitäten und Hochschulen sind zunehmend aufgefordert, im Rahmen ihres gesellschafts- und bildungspolitischen Auftrages lebenslange Lernprozesse in der Aus- und Weiterbildung zu ermöglichen. Wie nun Lifelong Learning an Universitäten „lebbar“ gemacht werden kann, welche Konzepte in diesem Bereich vorhanden sind, welche Formen und Formate bereits erfolgreich umgesetzt werden und welche wesentlichen Aspekte für die Zukunft von Lifelong Learning Relevanz haben, wird in diesem Buch von renommierten Autorinnen und Autoren untersucht.
