Lesson Study as a Model for Building Pedagogical Knowledge and Improving Teaching
Cerbin, William; Kopp, Bryan
International Journal of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, v18 n3 p250-257 2006
This paper proposes a model for building pedagogical knowledge and improving teaching based on the practice of lesson study. In lesson study a small group of instructors jointly designs, teaches, studies and refines a single class lesson called a research lesson. We describe how college teachers can do lesson study in their classrooms. We explore how the practice of lesson study creates multiple pathways for improving teaching and how the knowledge teachers create can help to advance the practice of teaching in their fields.
