This book provides a unique assessment of the development of research in geography education and its future prospects, offering a challenging critique of subject-based education research, with particular reference to geography education across a range of different jurisdictions. It covers a range of topics, including the changing role of research in geography education; the relationship between education research and professional practice, with special reference to geography education research; the place of academic subject knowledge in geography education research; critiques of the functions of research in geography education; and the key issues for education policy and policymakers concerning educational research at national and international levels. Importantly, in a period marked by radical change for education research and researchers, the book offers a timely appraisal of possible ways forward for geography education research. Addressing the needs of academics, research students, policymakers, and education practitioners who undertake, use or shape the future of research in geography education, it comprehensively explores the forces that have driven the development of geography education research and pedagogy. Further, by positioning its analysis in the context of education policy debates in the UK, and further afield, it assesses the role and function of research in education, and offers an outlook on its future. This book is essential reading for all those who wish to understand the sporadic and increasingly uncertain development of subject-based research in education

R4,112 Discovery Miles 41 120 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

"Modernizing Schools: People, Learning and Organisations" poses four key questions: What are the antecedents of the current waves of modernization and what directions is it taking in England and internationally? Does workforce modernization, in whatever form, offer meaningful ways forward for the teaching profession in England and other countries? How is the leadership of change to take place with respect to educational modernization in England and elsewhere? What alternative approaches to remodelling might be developed with regard to the workforce labour market in England and in other national contexts? In exploring these questions, this book draws upon research evidence and accounts of remodelling from researchers, headteachers, governors, teachers, students and parents. It concentrates on the challenge of the modernization of education both in the UK and internationally, and considers its underpinning concepts and policies, providing examples of workforce remodelling and the management of this process in schools. How resources are used and the effects of remodelling practice on different stakeholders are also examined - together with a discussion of how we might engage it in schools and more widely in the public sector.

THIS IS THE SERIES BLURB...LIST ALL BOOKS TOGETHER: Continuum Studies in Reflective Practice and Research is a new series of textbooks aimed at teaching students.

The distinctive feature of relective teaching is that it encourages practitioners to develop by continually inter-relating theory and research findings to their own practice, situation and style.These comprehensive textbooks provide an accessible guide to all those who are new to teaching in secondary schools. Covering all aspects of job, from planning through to teaching and assessment, the authors provide constructive, accessible and, above all, practical advice to help subject teachers become more effective in their work.

Making Assessment Matter (Paperback): Graham Butt Making Assessment Matter (Paperback)
Graham Butt
R520 R482 Discovery Miles 4 820 Save R38 (7%) Out of stock

This empirical yet practical book highlights the fundamental connections between assessment, teaching and learning, and offers suggestions for maximising assessment in schools. Teachers often spend a considerable amount of their time monitoring and assessing their pupils' performance. But what are we assessing for, and can assessment practices be changed to make them more useful to teachers and learners? Assessment activities in schools are frequently criticised by government inspectors - often being reported as the least successful aspect of schools' work. Drawing on empirical research, "Making Assessment Matter" focuses on the purpose of assessment, and suggests strategies for managing assessment in a more effective way. The author considers the role of assessment in promoting learning, rather than simply measuring it, provides tips on setting and attaining assessment targets, and brings together considerations of 'high stakes' assessment at the national level with day-to-day assessment practice in the classroom. This timely and informative book will be essential reading for anyone involved with, or interested in, the role of assessment within schools, including teachers, trainee teachers and managers.
