Shape-shifting and Stories

Professionalism and Education with Doctor Who

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Harris’s chapter examines teachers’ professional identity, and how, through the lens of the popular cultural narrative of the British television series Doctor Who, teacher educators can inform and engage student teachers with the complex issues shaping the concept of professionalism. Harris offers examples and insights from Doctor Who that explore notions around identity, reflexivity and ethics and which provide opportunities for critical discussions about teaching and learning. Focusing on change and student teachers’ new roles and responsibilities, the chapter links this to education and the Doctor’s courage, ingenuity and integrity when facing the unknown and unfamiliar. Harris promotes a critical and compassionate professionalism that, inspired and exemplified by a story like Doctor Who, illustrates how teacher educators can use this while educating and empowering others.
