Putting the S(ensational) Back into Sociology--Developing Strategies for Enhancing Teaching and Learning for First Year Student Teachers in Large Classes
Daniell, Linda; Hogan, Vivienne
Australian Association for Research in Education (NJ1), Paper presented at the Joint Australian Association for Research in Education and Asia-Pacific Educational Research Association Conference (AARE-APERA 2012) World Education Research Association (WERA) Focal Meeting (Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, Dec 2-6, 2012)
The focus of the research was to develop a model for effective learning and teaching of sociology in a large class to promote active engagement with first year undergraduate student teachers and encourage deep learning. By seeking regular feedback from students and recording their own reflections on each lecture, the teaching team and co-researchers have sought to develop opportunities for authentic and meaningful dialogue to improve teaching and learning in a large class. What initially began as an investigation into strategies for promoting good teaching and learning in large classes has evolved into a wider discussion and exploration of the pedagogy of teaching and learning particularly in relation to teaching sociology as part of an undergraduate teacher education degree.
