- An Investigation Into the Pedagogical Trajectories of PGCE Trainees Using Espoused 'Beliefs'.Smith Matt - unknownPostgraduate trainee teachers undergo profound ‘shifts’ in their pedagogical understanding and practices through the year that they are taught at a UK Higher Education Institution. This study ‘investigated, in a paired pre–post design, the espoused pedagogical beliefs of three cohorts of PGCE trainees, at two time points – at the onset and toward the end of their studies in a teacher education department in a major HEI in the UK, with corroborative results from a fourth cohort and from a wider (...)No categories
- Examining the Relationship Between a Sophisticated Personal Epistemology and Desired Pedagogical Practices in Trainee Teachers.Matt Smith - unknownThis paper demonstrates the key link between the development of a sophisticated personal epistemology and the concomitant emergent pedagogies of trainee teachers, as identified through research in this area, including empirical engagement with trainees on a PGCE primary teacher training course in the UK.

Taking seriously Baudrillard’s claims that “the world is Manichaean; in it two orders are absolutely opposed” that “I wouldn’t have minded being Manichaean, heretical and Gnostic” and that “the dual form is indestructible”, this paper briefly distinguishes Baudrillard’s radical or “heretical” sense (...)
