Abstract

A commentary on teacher education initiatives for developing pedagogy for autonomy in schools. Elements of a possible 'knowledge base' are highlighted, including: parallelism between educating student-teachers and teaching (pupils) to learn; metacognitive awareness-raising; reflection on practical examples; actual engagement in a pedagogy for autonomy, especially with an action research dimension; involvement of school-based mentors; and necessary institutional adjustments
