This study intends to explore student and novice teachers’ experiences with the implementation of collaborative learning (CL) in classroom practice, after a formal training pertaining to CL as part of their teacher education programme. The findings revealed several dilemmas in the stories of student and novice teachers that illustrate the conflicting options teachers are facing in relation to their colleagues, their pupils, the curriculum and in the classroom context when implementing CL. In particular, the following dilemmas were identified: two dilemmas related to professional autonomy (student teachers: teacher autonomy vs. pre-service performance assessment and novice teachers: teacher autonomy vs. institutional conformity).

Development and Evaluation of a Training on Need-Supportive Teaching in Physical Education: Qualitative and Quantitative Findings
The purpose of this study was to develop a training for physical education (PE) teachers on how to create a need-supportive learning environment. This article described how researchers and experienced secondary school PE teachers closely collaborated to develop a continuous professional development (CPD) training grounded in Self-Determination Theory’s principles of need-supportive teaching. The findings suggest that teachers highly valued opportunities for active participation, collaboration and experiential learning. In addition, the PE teachers highly appreciated the theoretical background information to be able to understand and follow the rest of the training.

The current study explores the development of student teachers’ skills in implementing collaborative learning using a multilevel repeated measures design. Participants were 105 pre-service teachers that were trained in collaborative learning implementation. The results indicate that student teachers generally perform well in implementing collaborative learning.

Studying Learning Processes of Student Teachers with Stimulated Recall Interviews Through Changes in Interactive Cognitions
The study explores a qualitative study into student teacher learning process. It proposes theories on learning to teach, professional development, and practical knowledge. They are then video-recorded to while teaching, and audio recorded during a simulated recall interview. Changes in students’ interactive cognitions are understood as indicators for learning and professional development.

Development of the Beliefs about Primary Education Scale: Distinguishing a developmental and transmissive dimension
The article described the development and validation of the Beliefs about Primary Education Scale (BPES). The 18-item scale for assessing primary school teachers' beliefs toward the nature of good education is subdivided into a transmissive dimension and the developmental dimension. Recent studies (n=381), construct validity of the BPES was confirmed. The BPES’ DD and TD were shown to correlate significantly with constructivist and traditional teaching beliefs.
