“I Want to Listen to My Students’ Lives”: Developing an Ecological Perspective in Learning to Teach
In this article, the authors used ecological perspective to prepare preservice teachers to be attentive and responsive to their students. The authors want to prepare teachers to perceive their students as complex beings who navigate in different contexts such as home, school and community. The authors conclude that the Teaching and Learning Together project at Bryn Mawr and Haverford Colleges provides structures, scaffolding, and support to build awareness among prospective teachers. Such support allows preservice teachers to acknowledge the complexity of the educational process and prepare themselves to be teachers who will embrace, and structure opportunities for their own students.

Pre-service Teachers Undertaking Classroom Research: Developing Reflection and Enquiry Skills
This article examines the development of reflectiveness and research skills in eight pre-service teachers, through their participation in a funded research project to develop the handwriting of children with literacy problems. The authors argue that this project is an example of evidence-based practice, which identified that it is the creation of the evidence which is important and the shared professional involvement with compelling outcomes for pupils which develops teachers as thinkers, not simply technicians. The experience of reflection and discussion about a shared topic has the potential to develop pedagogical thinking and a profound concern for the results and impact of research.

Changes in Mentor Efficacy and Perceptions Following Participationin a Youth Mentoring Program
In this study, the authors examined mentors working with at-risk youth in a school-based mentoring program. The authors examined changes in mentor perceptions, motives, and efficacy. The findings reveal that mentors were highly motivated to gain experience. Mentors were less motivated to gain recognition and increase creativity. In addition to motives, the authors considered mentors’ expectations about the relationship. They found that mentors’ initial expectations were not related to mentor satisfaction with the experience, perceived costs or benefits, and time spent mentoring.

Enhancing Feedback in Student-Teacher Field Experience in Scotland: The Role of School–University Partnership
This paper examines school–university partnership and formative feedback within student-teacher field experience. The authors examine the qualities of a three-way dialogue about student-teacher progress, and the issues that militate against feedback being used to maximise professional development. This small study of additional support for students on field experience indicated that there were positive outcomes regarding the three-way dialogue about student-teacher progress. This dialogue gave a greater focus to the whole feedback process, encouraging the student to consider the learning goals of placement more clearly. And, particularly from the tutor point of view, this more intensive contact with the partner schools helped by giving an even greater incentive to the tutors to have a secure professional relationship with each other and thus with the schools.

Veteran Teachers Mentoring in Training: Negotiating Issues of Power, Vulnerability and Professional Development
This article aims to examine the ways in which a school–university mentorship programme promotes a range of growth experiences, both negative and positive, for the participating mentor teachers. The findings reveal that mentors saw their mentoring experience as a positive one leading to personal and professional growth and giving them a feeling of accomplishment through witnessing the benefits student teachers were drawing from the experience. The findings also indicate that the mentors experienced direct learning from their observations of the student teachers, thus breaking away from a novel/ expert unidirectional definition of mentoring. Moreover, the analysis shows that mentoring can be an effective way to renew the professionalisation of teaching by allowing mentors to recognise what they have to offer as veteran teachers, and so reaffirms the meaningful role they play in the formation of new teachers in Hawai‘i.

The Politics of Collaboration: Discourse, Identities, and Power in a School–University Partnership in Hong Kong
This paper reports on how teacher educators from a university, acting as facilitators, supported teachers in conducting a school-based action research project as a practice of professional development in the context of reform in language assessment in Hong Kong. In particular, the article problematises how the facilitators and teachers negotiated and managed identities whilst being engaged in a collaborative action research project. A key finding was that identities were neither fixed nor finite in the context of collaboration, but were negotiated within and against a range of contextually salient discourses. A major contribution of the article lies in its examination of the complexities of negotiating identities when educators from two different institutional cultures collaborate.
