Bachelor thesis in teacher education with teaching professional orientation: A case study from Sweden
Umeå University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Education.
2012 (English)Conference paper, Published paper (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

There is an ongoing discussion in professional academic education about the relationship between theory and practice. This is also the case in teacher education and some studies have shown an increase in the theorization of this education in the last three decades. But there is also an opposing strand defending a more practical approach in this education system and advocating collaboration with schoolteachers. In Sweden the final thesis of teacher education programs has given academic appearance considerably more weight and importance. Is it then possible to accomplish the bachelor thesis in teacher education with a focus on the students` practical teaching skills in collaboration with practitioners? This paper aims to study the occurrence of professional-oriented bachelor thesis in teacher education and to analyze them out of academic criteria. As theoretical premises, a division in two orientations in teacher education will be used: the academic orientation and the teaching professional orientation.
