Initial teacher training: the relationship between theory and practice in the Active Formative Training.

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The research project focuses on the relationship between theoretical knowledge and teaching practices; that is, between pedagogical and didactic knowledge (both from a general and a disciplinary point of view) – as it is acquired in the Active Formative Training (AFT) – and the professional practice as it emerges during training activities in the classroom.

Theoretical frameworks, educational models and devices – derived from general as well as from disciplinary didactics – will be taken into consideration and adapted in order to analyze both the work of the trainee and the work of the teacher/trainer in the AFT course. This investigation will be conducted according to the “clinic of activity” approach, using techniques like simple and crossed self-comparison. The aim is to understand “what actually happens” in didactic situations so as to gather constants and regularities useful to create models of the teaching/learning processes.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
