The project draws on current debates of teacher professionalization and quality in education and aims to research a relatively
new concept of teachers´ professional vision. Professional vision, linked to professional knowledge and professional action
offers a possibility to re-conceptualize teacher professionalism. It has two components – noticing (what teachers attend to) and
knowledge-based reasoning (process of making sense of a situation). In the project, we focus on teachers of English as a foreign
language (EFL) and aim to (1) describe the nature of professional vision of EFL teachers; (2) explore the influence of participation
in a videoclub (collaborative video-based analysis) on teachers´ professional vision and explore its acceptance among
participating teachers, (3) explore the relationship between professional vision, professional knowledge, and professional action.
Research methods including qualitative content analysis of teachers´ comments on video sequences and of teachers´ selfreports,
acceptance questionnaire, and video study will be used to achieve the aims.
