Part of the CRASSH Fellows Work-in-Progress seminar series.  All welcome, no registration necessary.  Sandwich lunch and refreshments provided.

Dr Andreas Stylianides (Education, Hughes Hall)


The project is concerned with the critical issue of understanding how to apply innovative yet local social scientific knowledge to address important and widespread problems.  In education, the current pressure for major improvement of student learning has created a need for understanding how to scale up educational innovations.  Yet, the issue of scale is particularly problematic in education, in part due to the indeterminable nature of classroom interactions that has triggered characterisations of teaching as an “uncertain practice”.  Thus, a key component in scaling up educational innovations is to support teachers in managing the uncertainties of their work.

The main goal of the project is to contribute to the development of a better understanding of the role of pedagogical tools teachers can use as they try to manage the uncertainties of their work and promote—in a purposeful, reliable, and effective manner—their students’ learning.  By “pedagogical tools” I include both conventional tools (e.g., lesson plans, paper-and-pencil tasks) and technological tools (e.g., slideware applications, educational video clips).
