This chapter presents evidence of how the BA in Educational Studies (TESOL) Programme in Oman made an impact on the practical knowledge of participating teachers, influencing changes in both their teaching practices and their cognitions with regard to teaching. Findings reveal that the programme supported change by providing opportunities for reflection and by embodying other features of a constructivist approach to teacher education. The chapter concludes that considerable development took place in the teachers’ ideas and classroom practices and that the broad design of the programme could be replicated in similar educational contexts worldwide.
