Event description

Description

Please note: this is a two-part sandwich course taking place on February 26 and March 22 2018. Your booking covers both sessions. Please make sure you are able to attend both parts before booking.

About the course

This two-part course will introduce a range of approaches to reflective practice and educational research in the context of curriculum design-centred teaching. You will explore the idea of teacher-researcher in the context of knowledge-rich curriculum. In particular, delegates will be introduced to an international form of action research called Lesson Study.

Lesson Study was first introduced in Japan as a form of CPD for trainee and teacher-practitioner alike. Lesson Study involves teachers working collaboratively in small groups on a commonly encountered and formerly identified pedagogical problem. The session will explore the strengths of this collaborative approach, together with the challenges of cultural barriers to its implementation.

The first session will consider the nature and structure of Lesson Study and critique it along with other forms of action research; in doing so delegates will consider the efficacy of Lesson Study within teaching practice.

This informative two-part sandwich course will enable you to design and to construct action research projects suitable for your school context.

Who should attend?

Who should attend? This course would be particularly pertinent to teacher-researchers, school-based research coordinators and SLT with responsibility for curriculum and teaching and learning.
