Abstract

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to report on a “Learning Study” program developed in Hong Kong that attempted to foster the learning of pre‐service teachers through a new, collaborative, inquiry‐based approach. Design/methodology/approach – A case study is used to illustrate how and what was learnt in this way by the student teachers attending the program. Findings – The paper explains how the Learning Study approach, with its particular structure and conceptual framework, can meet some of the critical conditions of a successful inquiry‐based approach to an initial teacher education program, as identified in the literature. Originality/value – The paper also explores the challenges of the approach and its potential for development into a sound pedagogy for initial teacher education.
