Case Studies in Teaching and Learning: Australian Perspectives
OverviewThis book of case studies is designed to provide a practical supplement to courses in Educational Psychology, Psychology of Teaching and Learning, and Human Development and Learning. With the increased use of case studies in teacher training in recent years, Teaching and Learning helps to bridge the gap between educational psychology theory and the realities encountered in classroom teaching. The cases are drawn from several sources: the authors own teaching experience over many years in primary and secondary school; undergraduate students experiences during teaching practicums; and excerpts from the writings of prominent literary figures which raise issues about the nature of teaching, learning and human development. Many of the studies reflect real-life Australian experiences in the classroom. All cases are designed to make teacher education as authentic as possible.
