Formateurs d'enseignants et éducation à la santé : analyse des représentations et identité professionnelle.

Abstract : We have attempted to identify the models of health and health education underlying the conceptions of teacher educators, and the obstacles and grounds for implementing training in health education, as were seen by the trainers. We also determined the characteristics and constants of ideal practice of training health education so as to propose a modelling tool that can be used for the training of teacher educators.Our approach was developed in two stages. We first interviewed 138 IUFM teacher educators by telephone using a questionnaire and teacher training curricula to establish an inventory of teacher training practices. In a second step, we conducted a qualitative analysis by interviewing 16 teachers, by telephone, during structured interviews, which we then fully transcribed and analyzed using the method of content analysis.The results of the qualitative analysis show that the interviewed teacher educators have a holistic approach to health and health education, focusing on the individual, and which has a positive impact on the implementation of actions for health education training. We also found that all the teacher educators interviewed had adopted health education as part of their professional activity: they feel at least partially competent in health education, and consider it to be a part of their mission. Moreover, most of the interviewed teacher educators showed practices in health education (both ideals of practices and reported personal practices) deriving from either an applicationist model, focusing on conceptual learning, or from a didactic model, focusing on the implementation of projects. The model holistic, focusing on the global approach to human health, was very marginal and not part of teacher educator’s perceptions of their role in training future teachers. The lack of training for the teacher educators was thus found to be the main obstacle in developing effective health education, leading us to developed tools and make proposals for the training of teacher educators
