We are very pleased that Dr. Gisela Wajskop from the Instituto Singularidades in São Paulo will be a visiting scholar at OISE from January – July 2014. Gisela will be collaborating with Clare on her research on literacy teacher educators. She is doing a similar study on literacy teacher educators in Sao Paolo.
Clare and Clive’s research teams submitted 21 proposals to AERA. Our success rate was outstanding – 16 were accepted! The two research teams will be well represented in Philadelphia.
Lin Goodwin and Clare just published the article Goodwin. L. A. & Kosnik, C. (2013) Quality teacher educators = quality teachers?: Conceptualizing essential domains of knowledge for those who teach teachers. This article identifies domains of knowledge for teacher educators and argues that they need induction and on-going support. The article is published in Teacher Development: An International Journal of Teachers’ Professional Development 17(3) 334-346.
The first publication from Clare’s research on literacy teacher educators has just been published. With her co-authors Lydia Menna, Pooja Dharmashi, Cathy Miyata, & Clive Beck “A foot in many camps: Literacy teacher educators acquiring knowledge across many realms and juggling multiple identities” has just been published in the Journal of Education for Teaching 39(5), 534-540.
Congratulations to Elizabeth Rosales Cordova who has completed her MA thesis: Opportunities for Teacher Professional Learning: Two Case Studies of Experienced Teachers in Ontario. She did two qualitative case studies of mid-career teachers to obtain insights into their teacher development experiences over their first eights years in the teaching profession. Elizabeth works on Clive’s research team.
