Rationale/summary

The IMTE-project aims to investigate and develop what could be described as the dynamics of teacher education, conceived of as processes and interactions involved in flexible and improvisational knowledge construction as part of teacher education.

The main research focus is the overarching concept of improvisation, connected to the student teachers’ spontaneous as well as prepared handling of

  • pedagogic and pedagogic content knowledge  in and across teaching practices and in interactions with pupils
  •  examples of contents, activation forms and artifacts in and across practices and interactions with pupils and
  • formative assessment  and the corresponding reflective practices of students, practicum teachers.
