Disrupting Traditional Pedagogy: Active Learning in PracticeWendy Garnham, Tab Betts, Paolo Oprandi, Wendy Ashall, Jill Kirby, Margarita Steinberg, Heather Taylor, Victoria Walden
Foreword by Rorden Wilkinson
This book is packed with practical ideas which are directly applicable to classroom instruction. However, it also challenges us to think honestly and critically about the successes and challenges of each approach. Every chapter contains a step-by-step guide on how we, as teaching practitioners, can develop similar tasks and environments in our contexts.
Drawing on the University of Sussex’s ‘disruptive by design’ philosophy, this book provides an eclectic anthology of real-life experiments in disrupting outmoded pedagogy. We have explored beyond the perimeters of teacher-centred learning and returned with maps that detail tested routes through the territory of active learning, but also pitfalls to avoid on your own journey. What does ‘teaching beyond the box’ look like? Step outside with us and see for yourself.
