University Challenge: Dynamic Subject Knowledge, Teaching and Transition
Green, Andrew
Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, v5 n3 p275-290 2006
This article addresses the complex issue of lecturers' subject knowledge and teaching. It explores the subject knowledge models of Banks, Leach and Moon (expressed in their chapter "New understandings of teachers' pedagogic knowledge", in J. Leach and B. Moon's edited work "Learners and Pedagogy," 1999) and of Grossman, Wilson and Shulman (see their "Teachers of substance: Subject matter knowledge for teaching", in "Knowledge Base for the Beginning Teacher" edited by M.C. Reynolds, 1989). The article then delineates how these can be used in the development of robust teaching models of the subject. It also suggests how these models can be used to develop a scholarly view of teaching and how this may impact on student transition and development. The article emerges from a study of teaching and learning in English Literature departments within the UK higher education sector, but it draws conclusions and offers recommendations applicable to teaching across the Arts and Humanities in and beyond the UK context. (Contains 2 tables and 1 note.)
