AbstractThis thesis describes an investigation into the important process of communication between tutors and student teachers in the context of teacher education. In particular it investigates the learning dialogue which takes place in the context of 'whole class' talk, and considers whose authority is being called upon or deferred to, both implicitly and explicitly, in these contexts - that is to say, whose Voices' are being heard. The research takes the form of two case studies of individual tutors, each interacting with a student group as part of the taught sessions within their course. It adopts a broadly qualitative methodology and its data comprise transcriptions taken from video recordings of the whole class sections of these sessions, the analysis of which is guided by a framework drawn from the literature reviewed.
