This module explores learning and teaching around the world. It introduces students to theories and concepts of comparative education studies and some of the different pedagogical approaches in local, national and international contexts. At its heart is a discussion and comparison of the similarities and differences experienced by teachers and learners across the globe. The module will be of interest to those aspiring to work in the third or cultural sectors, or hoping to apply for teacher training.
Major changes are needed in African schools to raise achievement and cope with rapidly increasing student numbers. Learner-centred approaches, improved internet connectivity and the recent UNESCO ICT competency framework provide opportunities to do this.
This free online course will help those who work with or train teachers in Africa make these changes happen. You’ll find out how to incorporate open educational resources (OERs) into teacher education, and help teachers use active learning and ICT.
This is a six-week, task-oriented MOOC that focuses on how to select, evaluate and use Open Educational Resources (OER) to help support quality in teacher education, particularly in Indian contexts.
The learning and teaching pathway on the MA (Education) (F70) will ‘go live’ in October 2018. The pathway explores curriculum, pedagogy and assessment in a variety of international contexts. The work of key theorists is examined through the perspective of practice in different settings, with a focus on the sort of schooling required in the future. The work of ITED (International Teacher Education and Development) features in both modules.
