About

This Learning and Teaching - Understanding Your Educational Practice module from The Open University UK is for those, who in some capacity are involved in educating learners in the 3–19 years age range.

Overview

This Learning and Teaching - Understanding Your Educational Practice module from The Open University UK offers significant interactivity as you engage with educational debates about how a rapidly changing, social and digital world is affecting learning, pedagogy and assessment in a variety of educational settings. It explores the key concepts from the perspective of learners (how is learning experienced), teachers (how are learning and teaching enacted) and contexts for education (how are learning and teaching organised). You’ll also focus on how learning and teaching are researched with a unit dedicated to researching practice.

Vocational relevance

We’ve designed this module to contribute to your current or future roles in relation to educational provision, with a strong emphasis on how the key concepts that underpin learning and teaching play out in practice. Part of the module’s activities will support your professional development planning. You’ll be encouraged to reflect explicitly on your digital information literacy skills and developing research skills, plus how you can use and continue to develop them in your context.

Programme Structure

  • Section 1
In the first section, you’ll consider learners’ perspectives on learning, curriculum, pedagogy and assessment. This includes the issue of pupil voice, how it’s accessed and used in educational settings. It also includes consideration of the concepts of learner identity and learner agency.
  • Section 2
In the next section, you’ll focus on educators’ perspectives on learning, curriculum, pedagogy and assessment. This includes the consideration of the concepts of teacher agency and teacher identity, alongside teacher leadership, and some specific pedagogies such as dialogic teaching and the opportunities afforded by technology.
  • Section 3
In section three, you’ll learn about research design, including alternative research paradigms, research methods, and research ethics. Developing your research skills is an ongoing theme throughout the module.
  • Section 4
The last section focuses on educational settings, including culture and organisation.
