During the last 10 years, an increasing body of research has thus emphasised coursework as an important site for making teacher education practice-based, by centreing coursework on core practices of teaching. This approach to practice-based teacher education has been called the enactment approach, and is primarily set within a US context. This article examines research on teacher education coursework in Norway and Finland, to investigate the extent to which the geographic scope of this approach has expanded to a Nordic context.
