Enhancing student research in teacher education

equipping teacher educators for high-quality student research supervision

Paper

In faculties of education of recently developed universities of applied sciences in the Netherlands, student research supervisors for Bachelor's programmes are charged with a complicated task.

They are expected to supervise students in conducting research within the context of a system that has yet to define research for its own purposes, to determine what students should learn from research and what the best ways to achieve this might be.
In order to gain a toehold for navigating this complex practice, supervisors must rely primarily on their own experience and, where present, the vision of their own institution towards applied research conducted by students.
