"The studies considered in this review of recent research on teachersâ€™ professional identity can be divided into three categories: (1) studies in which the focus was on teachersâ€™ professional identity formation, (2) studies in which the focus was on the identification of characteristics of teachersâ€™ professional identity, and (3) studies in which professional identity was (re)presented by teachersâ€™ stories. In the studies reviewed, the concept of professional identity was defined differently or not defined at all. Four essential features of teachersâ€™ professional identity could be derived from the studies. Many of the reviewed studies appeared to be studies on teachersâ€™ personal practical knowledge. However, in only a few studies was the relationship between this knowledge and professional identity made explicit. It is argued that, in future research on teachersâ€™ professional identity, more attention needs to be paid to the relationship between relevant concepts like â€˜selfâ€™ and â€˜identityâ€™, the role of the context in professional identity formation, what counts as â€˜professionalâ€™ in professional identity, and research perspectives other than the cognitive one that may also play a role in designing research on teachersâ€™ professional identity."
