Professional Learning in the Teaching Practicum
鄧怡勳、蔡碧蓮（Sylvia Yee-Fan TANG & Pik-Lin CHOI）
Teaching practicum is an integral component of teacher education. This article presents a qualitative case study that explored the professional learning journey of six pre-service primary student teachers in Hong Kong. Student teachers’ professional learning was examined from the perspective of the construction of the teaching self. It was found that the construction of the teaching self is closely related to (1) the challenges and support offered by the action context, the socio-professional context, and the supervisory context; (2) their interpretation of teaching and professional role; (3) their construction of knowledge. This study provides a deeper understanding of student teachers’ professional learning and generates insights for the development of quality teaching practicum.
