Mastering Teaching and Learning through Pedagogic Partnership: A Vision and Framework for Developing "Collaborative Resonance" in England
Totterdell, Michael; Hathaway, Tanya; la Velle, Linda
Professional Development in Education, v37 n3 p411-437 2011
The design and early implementation of a major national design initiative in England, the Masters in Teaching and Learning (MTL), is described in this paper. This novel hybrid master's degree seeks to span the traditional academic-practitioner divide, reconstitute the theory-practice dynamic as reciprocal and co-construct an authentic signature pedagogy for teacher professionals drawing on contextualised theories of learning and teaching. The historical, theoretical and pedagogic foundations of the programme of professional enhancement are described at the outset of the implementation of this new model of early career development in the South West of England through the formation of university provider consortia, stringent processes of validation and critical milestone reviews including trainer and coach training, recruitment and first inauguration of the programme.
