Description - Personal Epistemology by Barbara K. Hofer
This book provides an overview of the theoretical and methodological approaches to the study of personal epistemology from a psychological and educational perspective. The current models of personal epistemology are rich and varied, developed through decades of meticulous research, but they have yet to be discussed within one book. The first section provides an overview and update of the contributors' respective models. The second section includes new perspectives on theoretical and conceptual approaches to personal epistemology by addressing several challenging aspects of the underlying assumptions in the research on epistemology and offering provocative insights about areas that need the attention of researchers. In the third section, several contributors are engaged in designing new methodological approaches for the study of personal epistemology. The fourth section of the book reflects some of the most recent research on discipline-specific epistemology. Each section concludes with suggestions for future research.
This book will be of interest to graduate and professional researchers, educational practitioners, teacher educations, science and math educators, and administrators who are interested in examining the current viewpoints of central theoreticians and researchers working in this area.
