Education, Theory and Pedagogies of Change in a Global Landscape

Where does theory come from in educational research – and how is it operationalised in diverse disciplinary and professional contexts? This volume examines the pedagogic significance of theory in the work of nine pre- to post-doctoral scholars, whose narratives transport us across wide-ranging fields of inquiry: from Irigaray on mothering in academe to Jamison and engineering education in Denmark; from Te Whāriki in a New Zealand kindergarten to Confucianism in contemporary China.

How do we teach adults to read and write therefore improving their life chances?

This hands-on seminar will be delivered by City of Glasgow College Adult Literacy and Community Senior Lecturer, Diane Gardner who will highlight how a synthetic phonics based reading and writing scheme can help native English speaking adults and those from an ESOL background learn to read.

City of Glasgow College are now in partnership with BBC Learning’s Skillswise to further develop phonics as a learning tool by creating suitable and relevant resources to help reduce the number of those who cannot read or write in the UK today.

Standing Up For Education

We are a group of academics and educational researchers who support the broad policy agenda presented in the NUT‘s Stand Up for Education campaign. We see the Stand up for Education initiative as a welcome attempt to present a much more positive and optimistic vision of education than that currently on offer (see our statement of support and list of signatories).
