Course summary

This is a professional development course for new and experienced teacher educators involved in pre-service and in-service education in mathematics or science who are interested in increasing their knowledge and skills base required for effective and inspirational teacher education whilst ‘on the job’.

This two-year part time course is a world first, bringing together teacher educators in the UK, EU and internationally and provides an Oxford University masters-level qualification for anyone involved in pre-service and in-service teacher education in mathematics and science: school-based teacher educators, coaches and mentors; university tutors involved in teacher education, such as university tutors on taught education programmes or based in university subject departments (eg mathematics, chemistry) with some teacher education responsibilities; advisory teachers and fieldworkers; professional development providers.

The course focuses on developing teacher educators’ day-to-day practice as well as developing areas such as the design and teaching of teacher education programmes, the ability to conduct research to develop practice, and the ability to participate in debates about teaching and teacher education in your own subject. It is designed to be integral to the participants’ day-to-day practice as teacher educators and blends online distance learning with one-week residential components in Oxford in years one and two. Areas covered in the assessments include: exploring teachers’ beliefs about science and mathematics and teaching and learning; developing teachers’ knowledge bases in science and mathematics teaching; analysing and developing teacher education sessions and programmes; analysis and critique of research articles; links between theory and practice; construction of arguments for particular processes; implications for teacher education. This course is intended to provide the first systematic and sustained education for new and experienced teacher educators in mathematics and science that are both school and university-based. The course will enhance the participants’ skills as teacher educators and their ability to develop their practice through research, and to contribute to the education research community through their research activity including publications to professional and academic research journals.
