Now at the end of the study, I realise that this research was a snapshot of a particular time, for me, for my PSTs, my colleagues and the wider context of education. Displacements and shifts are common in teacher education (Calderhead, 2001; Martin & Russell, 2016; North, Clelland, & Lindsay, 2018) and this research took place during a time of change and these changes have continued. As a consequence, I have not taught this OE course to PE students since completing my research. It seems a pity because through this research I became much more knowledgeable about this particular course and the way I structured the learning experiences for my PSTs.
