Pedagogy : New Developments in the Learning Sciences Hardback
Edited by Robyn M. Gillies
This book brings together a diverse range of researchers to profile new pedagogical developments in teaching and learning.
This includes pedagogies in the fields of mathematics and science education, literacy, computer supported learning, and specialist fields such as special education, indigenous education, music education and the learning processes and relationships that are evident in many of these fields.
The emphasis in this book is on chapters that have a strong evidence-base for the work that is presented.
While some will argue that the different fields have their own specific pedagogies, often referred to as pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) (Schulman, 1986), research also indicates that there are many pedagogies that are applicable across different disciplines.
Teachers and educators need to be cognisant of how different pedagogies can be applied or used creatively in their own disciplines to promote understanding and learning.
