The effects of structural changes on teacher educators

Our project explores how structural and policy changes influence teacher education practices ‘on the ground’ at two distinct sites: Massey University and Manchester Metropolitan University, UK. The project investigates teachers’ differential responses to structural and policy change. It represents theoretical development, providing an explanation for the implementation of new policy. The project is also a political contribution, allowing an understanding of change processes around teacher education and through the findings from the two sites, providing suggestions for change.
