Samenvatting van de paper

This article takes as a starting point the idea that teacher professional learning can be understood as the result of the teachers’ confrontations and interactions with and within their professional contexts (Akkerman & Bakker, 2011; Beijaard, Verloop, & Vermunt, 2000; Kelchtermans, 2012). The nature of these contexts is explored through a review of the literature, and by an analysis of teacher learning autobiographies and learner reports. The findings suggest that three contexts can be identified: a theoretical domain, a personal practice domain, and a social domain, and that confrontations can be planned as well as unplanned. The relevance of the study is that understanding the ways in which context determines professional learning of teachers can help to promote it in specific areas.
