A group of teacher educators, drawn from a range of HEIs, have formulated a practice-focused module that can be used towards a partial fulfilment of Teaching Practice requirements. The module, called “Teacher Choices in Action” draws attention to an essential but often ignored dimension of student learning during their school-based placements. The module presents to students sets of choices that teachers need to make in every lesson they design and teach. These choices revolve around how teachers conceptualise and work with knowledge, how teachers work inclusively with learners and how teachers support learner engagement with the content.
