What Can We Learn from Studying the Coaching Interactions between Cooperating Teachers and Preservice Teachers? A Literature Review
This review examined what the research has revealed about the coaching interactions between cooperating teachers and preservice teachers around practice. The authors identified 46 studies as meeting the criteria for inclusion. The analysis yielded fourteen findings with varying levels of support. The authors have grouped these findings for presentation purposes around four areas: current practices and conditions, innovations in practice, relationships and tensions and local contexts and teaching practices.

This paper describes a systematic review to critically analyze empirical research conducted in the field of social justice and teacher education and published in peer-reviewed journals within the last 10 years. The authors found that the broad foci of this research could be represented by four themes: understandings of social justice and attitudes to diversity, changes in beliefs, field experience and service learning, and innovations and challenges in teacher education.

This article aims to present a systematic review of research studies on school practicum to identify the main critical points and also provide a wider perspective to the researchers in the field. The findings reveal that many of the reviewed studies take pre-service teachers as their main participants. Furthermore, the authors examined the main issues that emerged regarding mentoring. This article also found that many practicum studies are relatively small-scale studies since they are mainly qualitative focused and findings derived from a relatively small sample.

The purpose of this article is to review research carried out on, with and by physical education (PE) teacher educators over the last 25 years. It also aims to identify areas where research is lacking, in order to provide scholars with a useful context for the design and conduct of future scholarly inquiry on PE teacher educators. The authors found that the bias of English language publications notwithstanding, there has certainly been a much stronger focus on PE teacher educator research in the US than elsewhere. While a wealth of data has been collected on US PE teacher educators, a number of themes have received little attention elsewhere, such as the demographic make-up, biographies, careers, socialisation, or work roles of PE teacher educators beyond North America.

In this systematic literature review, the authors develop a preliminary model of factors that enhance innovative behavior in educational organizations. Similar to findings of studies in other human behavior fields, self-efficacy plays an important role as well as a variety of individual and environmental factors. Based on this review, the authors urge for more systematic research on teacher innovative behavior to enhance the future quality of education.

In an attempt to provide alternative models of field experience in teacher education, this review study elaborates team teaching.First, the literature will be explored in order to search for team teaching models that can be used during field experiences in teacher education. The study categorises the wide variety of team teaching models into five models, which differ in the degree of collaboration, i.e. the observation, coaching, assistant teaching, equal status, and teaming model. These models can act as a guide when implementing student teachers’ team teaching during field experiences. Empirical research on student teachers’ team teaching shows its advantages and disadvantages for the student teachers, their mentors and the learners in their classroom.
