Annotation

Teaching, Learning and Assessment: Steps towards Creative Practice takes the view that teaching, learning and assessment are not three separate aspects of an educative process but are inextricably interconnected dimensions of a holistic education. It proposes a new vision of curriculum and pedagogy, in which teacher education students from a range of backgrounds can become effective teachers by challenging their higher-order thinking and developing their critical thinking and problem-solving skills.

Publisher Description

Teaching, Learning and Assessment presents a new vision for curriculum and pedagogy.  It helps pre-service, beginning or practising teachers develop a deep understanding of how teaching, learning and assessment are inextricably linked with curriculum and holistic education. The author’s approach stems from a belief that through  quality teaching and the provision of effective learning  environments,  every child is able to achieve their best at school.This book is rich with practical teaching strategies and focuses on embedding digital technologies into as many aspects of teaching practice as possible. For instance, the book considers new ways of utilizing social media technologies as part of the learning, teaching and assessment continua, rather than simply as conversational devices. Draws on well-researched and well-grounded fields of study into teaching effectivenessIncorporates a wide range of tools to help teach critical thinking and problem-solving skillsRich with case studies, classroom scenarios and instructional strategies to help readers become more effective teachers, and lifelong learners themselves.
