Teaching method

The construction of the teaching profession develops within an approach that aims at promoting critical
thought and reflective skills (Korthagen, 2001) in articulation with a methodology of ´learning by doing´ in
Schön´s words (1991), without losing sight of the research dimension. Teacher training supervision is to be developed in an instructive, collaborative and reflective perspective and should lead to a reflection on the teaching process and professional and personal development open to innovatinand transformation.
