Learning Preferences of PGCE Students: Implications for Recruitment of Mathematics Teachers.
Woodrow, Derek
Applications for entry to Higher Education have persistently shown marked differences between ethnic minority groups and marked gender preferences, particularly for mathematics and the sciences. One reason for these differential choices is suggested by research into learning preferences. This is examined in this paper, which reports on a large-scale study of the preferred styles of teaching and learning of undergraduates and Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) students. Clear subject differences in these learning preferences were identified with mathematics students consistently at one end of the scales and English students at the other. Some implications of these findings for the recruitment of mathematics teacher training students are discussed. (Author)
