Section 1: A vision for teacher education


In this first section you will reflect on your ideas about teaching and learning and consider the implications for teacher educators of national policy aspirations for active learning and teaching. For example, what does it look like in practice? Is your own practice learner-centred? How can teachers be supported in promoting active learning and teaching and in being more learner-centred?

This section will also provide an introduction to issues around using ICT to support classroom teaching and an introduction to Open Educational Resources (OER). You will find out about TESSA, a large-scale OER Teacher Education programme.

In total there are nine activities in this first week, including a quiz that is part of your course assessment.
