ObjectivesOn completion of this module, students should be able to:
- appraise critically current literature on the pedagogy of supported teacher learning;
- evaluate interventions and materials in teacher education informed by key concepts in the field;
- discuss the implications for pedagogical decisions and trainer skills development of various types of interventions designed to promote teacher learning;
- design an intervention appropriate for their context.
This module focuses specifically on those strategies in teacher education which can be used to support teacher's learning. We will analyse various ways of designing as well as implementing sessions, courses or programmes for teachers. To do this, we will draw on some key concepts in teacher education (for example, socio-cultural, expertise, or skill learning models of practitioner learning). We will also consider mentoring specifically and review recent literature on this.
The module aims to prepare you to make informed decisions for future work with teachers and raise awareness of some of the additional skills and knowledge needed by teachers becoming teacher educators.
