Abstract

This piece of ‘fiction written under oath’ (Bridges, 2003) creates an imaginary online conversation between five teacher educators. The academics are developing their response to a proposal for a core curriculum in Initial Teacher Education (ITE) made in a paper by an influential, English commentator, Tom Bennett, entitled "Moving towards an evidence informed teaching profession."
The group argues against a core curriculum for ITE and highlights the need for
everyone involved in discussions about research literacy in education to engage with epistemological insights from a range of writers including Dilthey, Gadamer and Biesta.
