|Subject Overview:||This compulsory 12.5 point subject builds on the students' previous training in the methodology of their discipline (Science, Mathematics, or Technology etc). It focuses on the language and pedagogy of the discipline they teach through English and introduces them to the methods favoured in modern western education. The focus is on all aspects of methodology in the particular discipline, including course design, a review of methodological approaches (e.g., process approaches, inquiry approach, etc), teaching techniques, assessment and materials selection, and the use of ICT. This subject may focus on one discipline but, depending on the needs of the particular cohort, may cover two disciplines from Science, Mathematics or Technology though usually the second discipline will be offered in "Discipline-Specific Pedagogy B".|
