Course description

RECORDED SESSION - Please book as usual to access this recording and presentation. The time and date reflect how long the recording will be at least available UNTIL. Professor Rob Coe This session that took place on Wednesday 20th May 2020, looks at teachers’ pedagogical content knowledge: the need for teachers to have deep and fluent knowledge and flexible understanding of the content they are teaching and how it is learnt, including its inherent dependencies, and to have an explicit repertoire of well-crafted explanations, examples and tasks for each topic they teach. We considered the evidence that supports this requirement, what it means in practice and how it can be learnt
