Building awareness of pre-service teachers' dispositions - challenges for teacher educationoom
Each and every individual have their own unique idiosyncrasies that they have picked up through life. These 'dispositions' are the reasons why we do what we do in any given context. Becoming aware of your dispositions and finding out the reasons why you think and act in a certain way is an important competency to learn in teacher education programmes. Imparting knowledge to students effectively is one of the most fundamental aspects of a teacher’s domain. However, what if this skill wasn’t being effectively taught or assessed? What would be the implications for pre-service teachers not including this aspect sufficiently? Ten articles on the issue surrounding dispositions within education have been used to collate this literature review. The sources used are from journal articles, literature reviews, and education documents. These were found searching by searching the terms “dispositions”, “teacher training”, and “teacher standards.
