Understanding the potential for research capacity in initial teacher education programmes north and south

Phase I: A baseline comparative study

This project aims to:

  1. To create a comprehensive baseline understanding of how research awareness, understanding and skills are incorporated and developed during the initial stages of teacher education.
  2. To provide a ‘force-field analysis’ of the views, perspectives and resources of key actors/stakeholders in teacher education with regard to the factors that support and/or inhibit research capacity-building in the initial phase of teacher education programmes.
