The course will begin with an exploration of the origins and characteristics of teachers' personal pedagogical theories. The challenges of making personal pedagogical theories explicit will be discussed along with techniques for their articulation. There will also be a major focus on the elements and structure of personal pedagogical theories, that is, on the various ways in which teachers represent their practical knowledge and theories and on the links among such elements.
