Pausing At the Threshold: Opportunity through, with, and for Self-Study of Teaching and Teacher Education Practices
Self-Study of Teacher Education Practices (S-STEP), a special interest group of AERA, invites you to participate in the 2023 Castle Conference. All proposals are welcomed, and membership in S-STEP is not required for proposal submission. If you are interested in opportunities to interact with educators who are working on the problems of education through the study of their own practices, then the Castle Conference is an event for you.
To engage in S-STEP is to engage in a search for pedagogic turning points or threshold opportunities that can enrich personal understanding of practice through raising new possibilities, perspectives, and discourses (Hamilton et al., 2020). The theme for the Castle 2023 biennial meeting asks self-study researchers to mindfully pause and purposefully reflect as to how we might realize the contributions the Self-Study of Teaching and Teacher Education (S-STTEP) community has made, is making, and could make to different communities and audiences. Drawing from the metaphors of threshold and becoming, they invite the S-STTEP community to explore the “powerful potential for speaking and contributing” (Berry, 2020, p. 4) to teacher education and to broader communities of practice and audiences.
