Reform and “being true to oneself”: Pedagogy, professional practice, and the promotional process
Knowles, J. Gary
Cado Gap Press
Excerpt from Chapter: "This chapter is a continuation of our dialogical reflection on academic life. In a sense, it is a culmination of our earlier pre-tenure discussions (see, Knowles & Cole. 1994; 1995). Drawing on aspects of Gary's experience as a beginning professor in particular. we consider the prospects (?) of teacher education reform. When we first conceptualized our chapter on beginning professors and teacher education reform, we did not intend to present elements of very personal experiences and perspectives as now represented. Circumstances related to Gary's tenure application guided us in a new direction, as we will soon make clear."
