Aspects of School–University Research Networks that Play a Role in Developing, Sharing and Using Knowledge Based on Teacher Research
The goal of the present study was to explore and describe which aspects of a school–university research network play a role in processes of developing, sharing and using knowledge based on research by Master’s students. The authors combined three perspectives on a network to better understanding of knowledge processes that take place within school–university research networks. A coding system was developed to analyze aspects that play a role in knowledge processes within a school–university research network. Fifteen aspects of a school–university research network were recognized in the processes of developing, sharing and using knowledge based on research by Master’s students

‘Bringing Theory to Life’: Findings from an Evaluation of the Use of Interactive Video within an Initial Teacher Preparation Programme
The current article describes an evaluation of a project in England. The project used the internet to link a university teacher education faculty with local partner schools in which remotely operated Internet Protocol cameras and microphones were mounted in classrooms.

‘Lights, Camera, Reflection’: Using Peer Video to Promote Reflective Dialogue among Student Teachers
The current article examines the use of peer‐videoing in the classroom as a means of promoting reflection among student teachers. The study examined the capacity for peer‐video analysis to facilitate student teachers to move from focusing on the technical aspects of their practice to an examination of the theoretical constructs underpinning their practice.

The purpose of this article is to make a contribution to the neglected area of study of mentor training by presenting some examples of innovative practical techniques designed to link theory with practice. The authors' experiences suggest that mentoring presents an opportunity to reevaluate teaching practices in collaboration with a mentee, as well as within a supportive community of fellow mentor teachers, thereby contributing to ongoing learning and development.

This article draws on the Scottish experience of undertaking research as part of the reforming process of an undergraduate program in initial teacher education. The article examines the tripartite tensions created by differing perspectives and rationales with respect to teacher education: policy, research and practice. The authors' experiences and reflections lead them to some conclusions about the nature of research-based practice in a policy-driven initiative.

University-Based Teacher Education in the Field of Tension between the Academic World and Practical Experience in School: A Norwegian Case
The purposes of this paper are to discuss, interrogate, and identify problems inherent in the tensions between academia and the proximity to the field and the need for robust knowledge production through research and the 'tips for teachers' approach. The current paper gives an account of a Norwegian experience of this field of tension.

This article analyzes the ethically important moments that helped build, then break, and then negotiate the relationship between researchers and schools during an ethnographic-type study. The study was conducted by the team of researchers from a prominent private university. The author argues that the researchers failed to examine reflexively the knowledge they produced in their written representations. The author's critique uses a framework that counters harm with benefit and authority with respect, drawing on both consequential and non-consequential ethical theories, and emphasizes an ethic of care.

Many self-studies are derived from the issues, problems and concerns that emerge out of a teacher educator's practice. The author claims that a good story can carry important messages and information about teaching, so that other teachers might be able to implement a similar approach in their own classrooms. However the author would suggest that in terms of development of knowledge, thestories alone are not enough. The author concludes that the stories of these teacher educators' work are helpful, but the learning derived from their researching of their practice that leads to the production of new knowledge of teacher education practices.

This case study examines the perceptions of a group of trainees on the employment-based graduate teacher programme (GTP) towards the close of their initial teacher education. Seven trainees were selected to participate in the study. Data were collected by conducting a series of semi-structured interviews. Findings suggest that GTP trainees were able to identify ways in which 'theory' had positively influenced their practice. However, the authors claim that most workplace learning occurs on the job and that this masks an uncertain interplay between formal and less formal elements of how trainee teachers learn on the employment-based GTP route studied here.
