Abstract

This chapter focuses on metaphors for wellbeing that were developed by a number of pre-service teachers (students) within prescribed education units undertaken during their year-long Graduate Diploma in Education (GDE) Course. In light of readings, discussions and reflective activities, students explored attributes and potential of the metaphor for defining a sense of self and sustaining personal wellbeing during their course. Students used this valuable background knowledge and understanding of self to create personal metaphors that represented themselves on a learning journey undertaken within their prescribed education units. Students metaphors became sources of personal wellbeing and sound bases for enhancing their learning and teaching perspectives within the framework of their course.
