Exploring alternatives: Critique of the process-product paradigm dominating Teaching Educator Professional Learning (TEPL) in contemporary higher education
13th December 2018
As a result of this seminar participants will:
- Provide an open space to better understand the key assumptions and ideological governance forms underpinning the Process-Product model of Teacher Educator Professional Development operating in contemporary Ireland, Europe and OECD countries
- Apply a select literature review in gaining a deeper understanding of the contemporary framing of HEI Policy in TEPL using human capital theory and the contested nature of this worldview in the international literature
- Productively debate issues and concerns about academic progression criteria currently presented in western HEIs as a watertight evidence-based solution
- Re-consider the purposes of education and teacher educators/educational researcher’s responsibility for the critical, social and heuristic aspects of education and the concept of a democratic society
