To reflect from a learner’s perspective on aspects of pedagogy

Aim

To reflect from a learner’s perspective on aspects of pedagogy.

Evidence and reflection

Reflect back on a significant moment from your own early education, and what you remember about yourself as a learner. Recall what happened. To what extent were your values, attitudes, responses and prior knowledge taken into consideration by the teacher in this episode? What aspects of pedagogy might, or could, your teacher have been drawing on at this point?

Extension

In the light of your current thinking about pedagogy, how might you have acted had you been in the teacher’s position?
