`This presents a useful model for conceptualizing pedagogy as professional knowledge, well supported by selected readings' - Dr A Loveless, University of Brighton `This book makes a plea for recreating thinking about knowledge, learning and pedagogy in the context of challenges posed by change - both cultural and technological. Bruner emphasizes that in coming to know, our own knowledge needs to be worked on and transformed, assisted by the toolhouse that is culture. This collection stands as a rich resource from which to exercise our thoughts and reflect on our activities as educators' - British Educational Research Journal This textbook looks at the relationship between views of learning, learners, knowledge and pedagogy. Worldwide, education is being subjected to a succession of policy initiatives and political interventions. Questions of what should be taught, and how, are subjects of constant debate, seldom based on research findings or theoretical principles. The articles in this volume have been chosen to show how theories can provide frameworks for analysing pedagogy and to create a dialogue about new possibilities for advancing practice. Learners and Pedagogy is a Course Reader for The Open University course E836 Learning Curriculum and Assessment.
