Dr. Katie Strom Co-Edits Special Double Issue on Teacher Professional Development

Dr. Katie Strom Co-Edits Special Double Issue on Teacher Professional Development

Dr. Katie Strom has co-edited a double special issue on complex perspectives on teacher development. The dominant way the field thinks about the link between teacher learning and the practice remains linear, dualistic, transactional, and rooted in human agency (Strom & Martin, 2017; Strom &; Viesca, 2020). The twenty-two articles in this special issue trouble that dominant thinking by drawing on a continuum of complex perspectives, including Cultural Historical Activity Theory (CHAT), complexity theory, Actor-Network Theory (ANT), indigenous perspectives, rhizomatics, ‘new’ materialisms, posthumanism, and affect theory, to provide relational, situated, decentred analyses of teacher development.
