And the Main Thing is....Learning: Keeping the Focus on Learning - for Pupils and Teachers

Mike Hughes

Education > Leadership
And the Main Thing is....Learning: Keeping the Focus on Learning - for Pupils and Teachers Education faces a twin challenge: to sustain the undoubted improvements of recent years, and to switch the focus from teaching to learning. The key question, and the one that this book seeks to address, is whether the strategies and policies that have enabled us to improve teaching and raise standards will be sufficient to help us develop further and promote learning. Is it to be more of the same, or do we need a change of emphasis if we are to break through the inevitable plateau of attainment and achievement? This book argues that the future, in terms of both pedagogy and policy, demands an approach rooted in learning. More specifically, it suggests that: - everything we do must be based explicitly upon learning - teachers must be learners too - we have a professional responsibility to go on learning about learning, because the better we understand learning and the learning process the better able we are to facilitate it in others.
