The teaching profession finds itself at the crossroads
at this time. because the crowded curriculum
and the emphasis on core competencies including
literacy and numeracy can have the tendency to push
research training into the background. The question
should be asked though, is research capability a skill
practicing teachers should be engaging with? Is
reconstructing the curricula of universities to make
research preparation a priority worth pursuing?
The following paper considers the issue of research
and what it can add to teacher practitioners’ “arsenal”
of capabilities. The authors believe that there is value
in reconsidering the curriculum of teachers, as there
are many ways in which teachers can be informed
and inform knowledge about teaching. The ability to
apply research capabilities to the teaching context
can significantly benefit the profession and more
importantly its’ students.
