In what ways can Lesson study and Learning study be represented in teacher education, to enhance pre-service teachers’ teaching and learning, as both Lesson and Learning study in some respects can be said to be experience based?
Lesson study is a method used by experienced teachers to develop teaching, to meet curriculum goals, and to help learners develop certain learning prerequisites. Lesson studies are accomplished through research lessons build on teachers’ collaboration and self-critical reflection. In learning studies, researchers and teachers collaborate to find ways to get students to discern so called objects of learning. Learning study, based on variation theory, is inspired by lesson study and design experiments and focuses on the object of learning and how it should be varied. Both lesson and learning studies have shown positive results in practice. They enhance teachers’, researchers’, and students’ knowledge, and develop learning and teaching. However, the models are foremost used in primary and secondary school by experienced teachers, and not that much at university level or practiced by pre service teachers.
Using lesson and learning study in teacher education might be a fruitful way to test and discuss teaching and learning, which are two important aspects of a teachers’ work
