This seminar focussed on an arts-based research journey which has taken place over the past several decades. It shared, the examples from personal and graduate student experiences, the milestones and challenges which emerged along the way and suggest avenues for future work.

This presentation was sponsored by the Centre for Research on Teacher Education and Development (CRTED) as part of the Reconsidering Teacher Education seminar series.

Korean society is passing through a tunnel of "frenzy" in learning English. All of universities open English conversation courses to all students as the required. Thus they employ English native speakers from English speaking countries all over the world such as the US, Canada, England, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa for English education in their school. This seminar talked about how a Korean-American NEST (Native English-Speaking Teacher) composes her stories to live by in the context of Korean university in which 'nativeness' and 'whiteness' of English teachers are valued.

Horowitz Teacher Education Research Scholar

On August 1st, Dr. Emma Quiles Fernandez, from the University of Barcelona, will take up the 2016 Horowitz Teacher Education Research Scholar position. In Fall 2016, Emma will begin a fall and winter term seminar series on care and caring.

Seminar Series: Experiences of Care and Curriculum-making

Starting on September 22, this reading group will unfold in a seminar format and is intended to engage participants in an exploration of care, caring and curriculum making, with particular emphasis on the educational relationship, a relationship expressed through sensitivity, love, touch, gesture, listening, and pedagogical tone.

The purpose of the seminar is to rethink, share, and discuss questions we discover as we bring our experiences alongside the readings. We will think together, think out loud, and think in community. We will engage in all of this as an educational and transformative practice that allows us to create a relationship between our educational practices with children in schools and with students in University classrooms.

 

Facilitator

Dr. Emma Quiles-Fernández, the 2016 Horowitz Teacher Education Research Scholar, will facilitate the reading group. For more information, please contact Emma by email at eqf@ualberta.ca or by phone.

Tensions and Complexities in Professional Education presented by Dr. Andrew Estefan

Increasingly, universities are thought of as a place to "grow" young, workforce ready professionals. Professional practice disciplines within universities are expected to conceptualize and design curricula that prepare students to become critical thinkers and competent doers in their respective professions. The increasing emphasis on work readiness creates a tension with notions of practice readiness. That is to say, work and practice become conflated and pressure to produce competent doers increases. When practice is equated with work, both the students we "produce" as well as the faculty members who teach them are shaped in marginalizing ways. Dr. Estefan will discuss the experiences and effects of this shift in understanding the purpose of professional education in university contexts. See brochure for additional information.
