Title: Observation of Teaching
Subtitle: Bridging Theory and Practice through Research on Teaching
Edited By: HandoyoPujiWidodo
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in Second Language Teaching 11
Description:

Grounded in postmodern perspectives on teaching, this much-needed edited
volume offers fascinating insights into observation of teaching. It is divided
into five parts. In the first part, the authors provide interesting insights into
how they view research on teaching and observation of teaching as a form of
professional development and a mandatory reflective practice. In the second
part, the authors voice different perspectives on critical self-reflective inquiry.
They discuss how reflective practices can lead to self-awareness of their
work in the classroom. What follows, each author, in the third part, highlights
the idea that observing others’ practices can be a repertoire of exploring
alternative pedagogies and ways to (co) and (re)construct what one does as a
teacher. In the fourth part, the authors provide readers with a solid
understanding of the visible and invisible power issues pervasive in
institutional contexts.

By conducting post-observation sessions and reflecting on those sessions,
teachers, teacher educators, and teacher researchers can begin to unpack
the sociocultural and sociopolitical contexts of teaching. In the last part, the
authors document critical reflections on collaborative work between teacher
educators from two different content areas, teacher educators and classroom
teachers working with science education students, and a teacher educator
looking to develop an effective, contextualized teacher education program
model as a way to foster cultural competence among teacher learners from
diverse backgrounds.

Thus, this edition provides readers with a complete picture of
reconceptualizing their teaching via engaging in critical reflections, observing
other teachers’ classroom practices, and challenging their views on how
teaching is intimately connected to the world they live in. Therefore, this
edited collection is a useful guide and resource book for pre- and in-service
teachers who wish to be involved in observation of teaching as a research
and teacher professional development tool.
