Hascher, Tina; de Zordo, Lea; Hagenauer, Gerda (29 August 2017). Emotions in cooperative field experiences (Unpublished). In: 17th Biennal EARLI Conference - "Education in the Crossroads of Economy and Politics". Tampere, Finland. 29.08.-02.09.2017.

Collaboration is an essential element of the teaching profession and a precondition of school development and school. One key learning opportunity for collaboration are internships in pre-service teacher education as they often take place in teams. Although there is some evidence that learning during internships can be fostered by collaborative settings such as student teacher teams and peer-coaching (Goodnough et al., 2009; Lu, 2010), little is known about the learning processes and outcomes. Even less is known about the emotional experiences of student teachers in collaborative internships.Our quantitative study with future preschool and primary school teachers (Nt1 = 205; Nt2 = 132) aimed at analysing cooperative student teaching from an emotional point of view: Which emotions do pre-service teacher experience regarding collaborative student teaching during internship? How are these emotions correlated to different forms of collaborative student teaching? Results showed that the emotional potential of collaborative internships is high: Emotions occur both before and during collaborative internships with a stress on positive emotions such as excitement, enthusiasm, and proud. However, student teachers also experience an array of negative emotions such as nervousness, irritation, and anger. Teaming models are the most frequent forms of team teaching right from the beginning of internships. There is no clear pattern regarding the correlation between emotions and team teaching forms.
