7 “The dilemma for pre-service programs is to prepare future teachers for schools as they currently exist while also enlarging their vision about what schools and public education might, should, or will become.” Alice Pit (2010)

8 The evolution of the research project… The problem… Educational paradigms (by the system, society) (Robinson, 2010; Pitt, 2010) Teaching profession is not always widely respected (Dolton & Marcenaro-Gutierrez, 2013), and not always swift to change (Pitt, 2010).

9 The evolution of the research project… My observations.. I had no idea! This is tons of work! I learned it this way back in the day…it worked for me!

10 The evolution of the research project… The problem… Apprenticeship of observation (Daniel Lortie, 1975) Misconceptions of teaching (Darling-Hammond & Baratz- Snowden, 2005) Educational paradigms (by the system, society) (Robinson, 2010; Pitt, 2010) Teaching profession is not always widely respected (Dolton & Marcenaro-Gutierrez, 2013), and not always swift to change (Pitt, 2010).

11 Final documentary film: The (Un) Making of the Teacher Background and methodology… Research questions The problem… Methodology Sample (participants) Data collection Data analysis Contribution to the teacher education body of research

12 Background and methodology… Research questions

13 Background and methodology… How do teacher candidates’ conceptions or misconceptions of what it means to “teach” evolve over the course of a one- year pre-service teacher education program?

14 Research questions shape methodology… Research questions The problem… Methodology -Exploratory -Based on need to understand a multifaceted quandary -Qualitative -Case study (Yin, 2003; Teddlie & Tashakkori, 2009)

15 Research questions shape methodology… Research questions The problem… Methodology Sample (participants) Data collection Data analysis Case study 3-5 teacher candidates; puposive sampling Semi-structured interviews, artifacts, observations Content analysis; coding for themes and frequencies; convergence, divergence

16 Research questions The problem… Methodology Sample (participants) Data collection Data analysis Case study 3-5 teacher candidates; puposive sampling Semi-structured interviews, artifacts, observations Content analysis; coding for themes and frequencies; convergence, divergence Incorporating the video camera…
