Teacher Education, Curriculum and Pedagogy

Our Thematic Hub focuses on research relevant to the education of teachers working in a wide range of different formal and informal settings, including research on curricula and pedagogies.

Teacher education forms an important part of the work we do in the Moray House School of Education and Sport. More generally, teacher education is a major part of the field of educational research worldwide.

Educating teachers and interrogating the process of becoming a teacher raises important intellectual and political questions about orientation, direction and values. In addition, it raises important empirical questions about the most optimal ways in which teachers can be prepared for their professional careers, and how such careers  can be sustained over time.

Questions about curriculum development and enactment and questions about pedagogy are key to the craft of teaching, which makes research on curricula and pedagogies an integral part of teacher education research and scholarship internationally. In the TECP Hub, we bring together research and scholarship on these topics, with the aim to further develop work in these areas, and do so in fruitful dialogue with our teacher education programmes.
