The present paper focuses on moral authorship as an element of the professional development of novice teachers in the Netherlands.
Moral authorship refers to the ability of teachers to observe, identify, verbalize and reflect on the moral aspects of their work in a proactive and dialogical manner.

The authors elaborate on moral authorship by theoretically examining six interdependent tasks of moral meaning making: moral commitment, awareness, orientation and positioning, moral performance and evaluation.

Data were collected through narratives of 19 novice teachers in order to explore moral authorship in teachers’ talk.

The findings reveal the opportunities of moral authorship to support, navigate, and reinforce the professional development of novice teachers.
