New Issue of the heiEDUCATION Journal. Transdisciplinary Studies on Teacher Education

With the title “Self-Reassurances”, this sixth issue regards the ongoing process of self-reflection as a quality feature of teacher edu­cation, which finds expression in a probing attitude towards one’s own subject, a self-reflective stance towards oneself, and in an experi­mental curiosity about communication and transfer. Following historical, theoretical, and empirical approaches, the essays collected here contribute new insights, questions, and suggestions to this discussion.
