A Critical Examination of Teachers’ Professional Dispositions in the New Millennium

IRN Start Date: May 1, 2015

In the new millennium, teachers’ professional dispositions continue to play a key role in pursuing equity and excellence in education.  Although teachers’ professional disposition is not a new educational issue, the changing cultural, political, economic, and technological contexts have posed numerous challenges to the cultivation of teacher candidates’ professional dispositions. 

Our International Research Network (IRN) will first examine and synthesize existing research literature concerning (1) teachers’ professional dispositions and (2) methods of cultivating teacher candidates’ professional dispositions in the new millennium.  Next, we intend to analyze the common ground and gaps among discipline-based research and inter-disciplinary inquiries concerning teachers’ professional dispositions.  Finally, the proposed project will further undertake comparative and cross-cultural studies regarding the aims and methods of cultivating teachers’ professional dispositions in varied cultural contexts.
