Understanding the role and potential for research capacity-building in initial teacher education (ITE) programmes North-South Ireland: a baseline and comparative study
Gleeson, Jim; Leitch, Ruth; Sugrue, Ciaran; O'Flaherty, Joanne
The aims of this study of research capacity building in initial teacher education programmes in Northern Ireland (NI) and the Republic of Ireland (RoI) were two-fold: (i) to provide an analysis of the experience, perspectives and resources of teacher educators with regard to the factors that support and/or inhibit research capacity-building in the initial phase of teacher education programmes in order to determine future directions; (ii) to create a comprehensive baseline understanding of how research awareness, understanding and skills are incorporated and developed during the initial stages of teacher education.
