Trouble-Shooting Your Teaching: A Step-By-Step Guide to Analysing and Improving Your Practice

Synopsis

This self-assessment guide will help all teaching professionals - whether in higher education, schools or management training - to assess, critique, reflect on and improve practice.The book is based on extensive research carried out at the Institute for Learning at the University of Hull. Fully practical, it looks at the generic skills of teaching, and guides readers to consider their own work both in the light of best practice and of their own strengths and weaknesses. In so doing it will help to assess and build teaching that is best for the individual and their situation.Developed around the basic functions of teaching, rather than the methods used to actually deliver learning, the Guide shows readers how to identify key elements of their teaching, and its context, and uses a matrix approach to suggest routes to bring about change. "Trouble-Shooting Your Teaching" will help to identify possible problem factors (intake, course, materials, teaching, support, assessment); to recognise agents of change (learners, self, colleagues, support staff, management, stakeholders); and to initiate improvement. It will be a valuable self-help too
