University coursework and school experience: The challenge to Amalgamate learning

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Researchpeer-review

Abstract

The theory-practice gap has long been recognized as a point of contention in teacher education. Bridging that gap has often been seen as difficult almost regardless of contextual perspective—i.e., from both the world of academia and that of schools. Recognizing and responding to the oft’ bemoaned theory-practice gap demands are think of the ways in which the dynamics between the university coursework and professional experience components of teacher education are conceptualized and made tangible.
