The Moral Imagination In Pre-Service Teachers’ Ethical Reasoning, Amy Chapman, Daniella Forster, Rachel Buchanan

Australian Journal of Teacher Education

This paper will discuss findings from a teaching project pilot study designed to investigate the ways in which pre-service teachers understand and reason through ethical tensions perceived to arise during their final professional experience situation.
