A literature review on peer coaching between student teachers : effects and factors

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

A former literature review (Lu, 2010) explored similarities and differences between peer coaching programs for student teachers. The recent literature review aims to update and expand the findings of Lu’s (2010) review by focusing on the questions: what effects can be achieved through peer coaching between student teachers, and which factors influence the success of peer coaching between teachers. By analyzing and synthesizing 20 publications and 17 data-sets, we reveal that peer coaching has positive effects on student teachers’ knowledge, attitudes, teaching, and their pupils. Trust is a prerequisite for the success of peer coaching as well as constructive feedback. The success of peer coaching can be enhanced with video recordings of lessons. Time and support of the environment are also important.
