This subject provides participants with knowledge, skills and dispositions to enhance teacher capacity and thereby improve numeracy outcomes for all students through coaching, lesson study and instructional rounds. These three strategies are widely used for numeracy and have a common focus on building teacher capacity to improve the effectiveness of instruction through teacher professional development. Each method comes with important pre-suppositions for school policy and practice that are a key area of responsibility of school leaders. Their common focus is what happens in the classroom and how that can be changed to improved learning outcomes for all students. Participants will explore in depth, the practices and policy underpinning each method. They will link their study to current directions and initiatives.
On completion of the subject students will be able to:
Attendance at all classes (tutorial/seminars/practical classes/lectures/labs/online classes) is obligatory. Failure to attend 80% of classes will normally result in failure in the subject.
