Faculty staff continue to demonstrate a very wide range of interests, as is clear from the following list of recent publications. All books are in stock in the Faculty Library, so do contact us if you would like to borrow any of them. And remember to look at the Pinterest board where we post details of all new books by Faculty members
Pam Burnard is a contributor and one of the editors of a new book on professional knowledge and pedagogic practices in music education. Professional Knowledge in Music Teacher Education edited by Eva Georgii-Hemming, Pam Burnard and Sven-Erik Holgersen, presents work by internationally renowned scholars who explore the current debates about knowledge, practice, professionalism, and learning and teaching in music.
The second edition of Teaching Secondary Chemistry edited by Keith Taber, which also contains a contribution by Elaine Wilson, aims to provide support for teachers at all stages of their careers, whether they are student teachers, NQTs or those with some years of experience. Each chapter covers a different section of the curriculum and for each of these there are suggestions about the teaching sequence, advice about students’ misconceptions, enhancement activities and suggestions for the use of ICT.
Recognising that the teaching profession is facing ever-increasing pressures from society and policy-makers, the Education International Research Institute commissioned a study which draws on research on teachers’ self-efficacy, teacher voice and leadership in education. The resulting publication by David Frost and John Bangs, Teacher Self-Efficacy, Voice and Leadership: Towards a Policy Framework for Education International reaffirms the role of teachers in bringing about positive educational change.
