Title
The teaching behaviour of beginning team teachers at the beginning of a team teaching intervention
Author
Abstract
Team teaching is considered a promising professional development strategy in which teachers are committed to collaborating, sharing expertise, supporting each other, learning collaboratively, and enhancing their competences to deal with students’ different needs. However, little is known regarding the changes in their teaching behaviour compared to teaching solo previously, especially when experienced teachers are beginners in a team teaching context. Consequently, the present study aims to advance insight in the initial teaching behaviour of beginning team teachers in primary education at the beginning of a team teaching intervention. A mixed-method research design is used by combining video-observation and team interviews by 16 beginning team teaching teams, consisting of 33 primary teachers. Results show that team teaching is mainly used for more complex skills such as activating teaching and differentiated instruction. The more basic skills, such as, learning climate, classroom organization, clarity of instruction, are more embedded during traditional lessons.
