1.2 Objectives

This sub-study is part of the Curriculum strand of MUSTER, which poses the overall question: How do students acquire the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to become effective teachers?

The research reported here focussed on how student teachers experience the curriculum during their time in college. In particular, it sought to investigate student perceptions about teaching and learning at the NTTC, their views of the course so far, their attitudes to the tutors and their peers, and their views about the teaching profession. It was hoped the answers might throw further light on what kinds of images of teaching such a programme presents, and how the teacher educators might be shaping future teachers through their interactions with them.
