The advent of the Knowledge Age has brought many challenges to countries around the
world in every aspect of life, including learning in teacher education. With regards to this,
there is widespread agreement on the promotion of educational themes such as higher order
skills, teaching for understanding, constructivism, authentic problem solving, and lifelong
learning. In the same vein, there is increasing recognition for teachers to teach in ways that
are appropriate to prepare students for the Knowledge Age, and thus the need to re-evaluate
the learning structures for pre-service teachers. This paper summarises an inductive research
study of four final-year pre-service teachers (Diploma in Education) to look at how
engagement in an action research project during the teaching practicum influences their
pedagogical practice and beliefs towards professional learning.
This paper was published in the Proceedings of ERAS Conference held in Singapore from 19-21 November 2003
