ID: 3056 - View Book Page - Edit In OJS

This book aims to explore teacher identity and its different dimensions in connection with teacher reflective practice. Teaching is a very demanding job, requiring the teacher to have agency and be reflective for professional development. Thus, teacher identity is intertwined with teacher reflective practice and agency. It spans a wide range of dimensions, including teacher personal, professional, native/nonnative, private, ideal, public, and imposed identities. Teacher with constraints on their pursuit of ideal identity and a load of imposed identity and identity tensions may lose motivation for effective teaching practice and eventually for professional development. Due to the significance of identity in teacher professional life, this volume aims to explore aspects of teacher identity and identity tensions in connection with teacher reflective practice.
