  • Dr Kevin Watson, The University of Notre Dame Australia
Research-based teacher education has been explored as a way to prepare teachersfor effective teaching. The model developed and described in this research involvesvolunteer teachers from China who are undertaking a research degree while learninghow to teach within Australian schools. The model advocates an action-learning basisfor teacher education, where teaching is situated in and contextualised by schools, andwhere theory is accessed when needed. The model articulates the interdependence ofteacher education, classroom teaching, and research, and promotes a view that enquiryand change are an integral part of western school culture.
