Chinese Abstract

本論文緣起於自身過去教學小故事的追憶,觸發我對澳門幼兒教師專業發展探究之情。堅定自己的方向成就我開拓教師專業發展之敘事研究。透過本研究我期望能達致以下三個目的:一、了解澳門幼兒教師專業發展的歷程;二、在專業發展的過程中,探究澳門幼兒教師的教育信念;三、透過澳門幼兒教師的教育信念,審視影響其專業發展的因素。 本研究強調關注教師個人發展才是教師專業發展的本質,打破過去著眼關注專業知識與技能獲得的單一層面。透過澳門兩位幼兒教師的教學故事文本分析與討論,獲得的發現如下: 一、兩位教師專業發展交叉點 在二十年教學過程中,從知識技能、人格特質、思維歷程等方面的分析,發現兩位教師角色轉變的接洽點共有五個階段:「無知者」、「探究者」、「迷失者」、「經驗主義者」、「思而後行者」。縱觀兩位教師的專業發展都是正向的,但教師專業發展亦存有倒退之現象,此更值得研究與關注。 二、兩位教師的教育核心信念 從兩位教師專業發展交叉點的分析,發現她們堅守的教学信念主要包括:「以孩子為中心」、「不斷追求學習」、「享受團隊教學」、「反思教學」等四方面。當中以孩子為中心的信念更是貫穿兩位教師教育信念的核心。 三、影響兩位教師專業發展的因素 本研究發現影響兩位教師專業發展的因素主要有以下幾方面:在專業身份方面,以愛心為教學的精神底蘊,透過不斷增長專業知識追求專業地位的肯定;在學校文化方面,透過互相分享與支持積極推動教師專業知識獲得,教學反思有助專業知識得以內化與吸收:在教學實務方面,為了孩子甘願負出最大的努力獻身工作,即使面對弱勢學校一腳踢的現況,也盡量透過從旁吸收經驗解決即時教學問題。 最後,根據本研究的結果及發現,對澳門幼兒教育專業發展從教師個人、學校管理、教育行政機構等層面作出建議,作為日後推動澳門幼兒教師專業發展的參考。
