25.042 - Foregrounding the Social Side of Teacher Education and Development: Studies From China, England, New Zealand, Spain, and the United States

Sat, April 6, 8:00 to 10:00am, Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Floor: 700 Level, Room 705

Session Type: Symposium


This symposium brings together a collection of international studies that foreground the role of social capital in teacher education and development. Each study applies social network theory and analysis to examine the complex patterns of interpersonal relationships among pre-service and in-service teachers, and how these relationships are related to particular learning outcomes. The inclusion of studies from across the globe (China, England, New Zealand, Spain, and the US) affords comparisons between diverse contexts, and allows for more nuanced understandings of how social capital may enable or constrain teacher education and development.
