|Teachers’ Voices: African teachers’ assessment of their own learning and its relevance to UK|
|Monday, 16 March 2009|
SummaryThe project stems from the proposer’s past and current work - and increased understanding - of teacher development and transformation in Southern Africa. Past work has involved distilling the elements of teacher education curricula in sub-Saharan African countries (Devereux, 2005). More recently, contact with schools, the Eastern Cape Education Department, the University of Fort Hare’s teacher education department, UNISA (University of South Africa) and SAIDE (South African Institution for Distance Education) has offered useful personal insights on teacher development in a South African context. The project will involve the use of data from prior work and a small pilot study to prepare a research paper.
