The challenges teacher educators face under the influence of neoliberalism, coupled with select aspects of teachers' genuine experiences of teaching, is an area that has been neglected and is often under appreciated.
Arguing for greater attention to and awareness of educator well-being as crucially important to quality education, Essays on Teaching Education and the Inner Drama of Teaching comprises 11 essays that address and illuminate the place where troubles and issues, biography and history meet in the lives of Educators. The book is separated into two parts. Beginning with a critical analysis of Neoliberalism, in Part 1, Bullough examines the institutional, ideational, and social context within which educators, live, work and strive to make sense of their experience. In Part II, he illuminates specific aspects of the experience, the inner drama of teaching, emphasizing troubles, whilst seeking to elevate these troubles as issues. In conjunction, the essays seek to expose assumptions and ideas that enjoy taken-for-granted status in educational thought and practice. By locating tensions between troubles and issues, biography and history, the work intends to honor the life experiences of educators and students while recognizing that within their experience reside the seeds of a potentially powerful and compelling criticism. In these tensions, there resides hope.

The author presents 11 essays on teaching education, with a focus on the intersection between troubles and issues and life experience and history. The essays in the first section address neoliberalism and teaching education, particularly the institutional, ideational, and social context of educators, including neoliberalism and its effects on education and educators; the evolution of the purposes and practices of teacher education under neoliberal policy priorities; the ideology, biases, and intentions in the National Academy of Sciences publication Preparing Teachers; and problems with the idea of "best practice." Essays in a second section explore aspects of the inner experience of teaching, with an emphasis on troubles and issues, including educational reform and the role of motivation, teacher identity within a neoliberal audit culture, the role of storytelling and parables in teaching, the role of vulnerability in learning and teacher development, problems with the emphasis on empathy in teaching, the dangers and benefits of humor in teaching, and the well-being of teachers. -- Annotation (c)2019 * (protoview.com) *
