¶ … Perception of Knowledge to Perceive Teaching and Learning

How Does Our Perception Of Knowledge Influence Our Perception Of Teaching And Learning

Perception can be explained from physiological, physical, and psychological standpoints. In this study, we shall view it from a limited scope, as put forward in 1966 by Allport that, perception represents how we appraise or judge others. In other words, it refers to how people evaluate those they know and interact with in their routine life. Perception molds the information entering our working memory, and thus, is crucial. Background knowledge as schemas impacts perception and, subsequently, learning. This theory, that perception is influenced strongly by background knowledge arising from experience, has been validated by research (Glover et al., 1990). Kauchak and Eggen (2001) identify three elements under which one can assess teachers' depth of subject knowledge; they are general pedagogic knowledge, knowledge of pedagogic content, and content knowledge. It is apparent that one cannot teach what one doesn't understand. Therefore, researchers have established that an extensive link exists between teachers' knowledge and teachings (Adediwura and Tayo, 2007).

Richardson (1996), while reviewing teacher candidates and their views on teaching, has discovered that three kinds of experience influence them, namely, personal experiences, experiences with explicit knowledge, and schooling and instructional experiences. Pajares (1992),in his belief literature's review, verifies Richardson's assertion that, (1) beliefs with regards to teaching are developed through many formal schooling years, and, (2) altering them can be difficult. Lortie (1975), cited in the review, employed the phrase "apprenticeship of observation" to explain the affect of prior experience in shaping educational beliefs.

Pajares (1992) is of the view that beliefs can cement themselves so…
