Knowledge and the study of education: an international exploration

Whitty, G (2017) Knowledge and the study of education: an international exploration. In: BESA 13th Annual Conference, 29 - 30 June 2017, Liverpool, UK.

Abstract

In the English-speaking world, university Schools of Education are usually heavily involved in the professional preparation of teachers. Yet, in England and the USA in particular, the role of universities in teacher education has increasingly seemed under threat as alternative providers of training have come on the scene, often with the overt encouragement of governments. This book, which is based on a project that explored how the study of Education is configured in different countries, makes visible the different knowledge traditions that inform university teaching and research in Education around the world. The extent to which these are related to the training of teachers is shown to vary historically and comparatively.
