Interviews with teachers and learners
MetadataShow full item record
The author has been involved in interviewing teachers and learners about their understandings about teaching and learning. This paper follows from those interviews and begins to discuss what teachers and learners revealed. From an individual perspective, interviewees discussed their motivations, ability assessments and strategies for teaching and learning. From a contextual perspective, interviewees spoke about social interactions, the relative ease of learning in practice and the enhanced learning to be gained from combining theory, practice and reflection. In this paper the author discusses comparisons and contrasts between interviewees' understandings and current recommendations for best practice found in extant teaching and learning literature.
