Created for a video format

I was drawn to this course because I myself teach social studies at the high school level. Because Dr. Allitt also teaches history, I figured I could pick up a few content-related teaching strategies. I was not disappointed.
This course was developed to be versatile and useful for many teaching content areas though. I’m certain that I would have learned something even if I was a math or science teacher too.

Biggest things to be aware of:

1. The brunt of the content is directed towards teachers engaged in college seminar classes with lecture style. With the exception of maybe a few lessons, I don’t suppose much of this class would be relevant to a highly differentiated elementary classroom.

2. There are several parts of the audiobook which are almost comical because the teaching company clearly used the audio from their visual course and put it out as an audiobook. For the most part, this is not a big deal. However, there are several parts where Dr. Allitt will be interviewing people, the audio will make a break, and the narrator will switch. There are also parts where Dr. Allitt will refer to an image and direct your attention to a PowerPoint or image as well, which is obviously not there in this format.

Overall though, I really enjoyed this production. Dr. Allitt has several unique insights which are helpful and engaging. I definitely recommend this for anyone who is interested in expanding their pedagogy.

Helpful for Teachers and Students

Great material, but needs updating

This course is a helpful guide for teachers, primarily, but not exclusively, at the university level. It draws from the experience of a range of top university lecturers as well as some of their students. The lecturer is careful to mention when his suggestions and ideas are his own beliefs and references and when they are backed up by research and or supported by others. Although the original format was evidently a video, little is lost through listening as an audio only.

The main weakness of the course is that the discussions about teaching technologies are well-dated now, and the content can be rather shallow in those sections. A few of the other lectures feel a little dragged out, with unnecessarily long example recordings, for example, in the section on one-on-one teaching. An updated version of the course could look to reduce some material to create space for longer discussion on new technologies. For example, there is very little if anything about on-line courses, and there is a lot of scope for expanding on advice for using presentation slides and the positive and negative roles of the internet. The section on teaching students to write was helpful, but could be helpfully expanded. For example, while there is quite a lot of advice on how to get students to write sentences that are grammatically correct, there was a lack of advice on how to get students to be more precise in their meaning through, for example, avoiding ambiguity and vagueness. Although a bit more attention to imparting writing skills would be useful, the course sadly says nothing about numeracy skills. and if a choice has to be made between more on literacy and something on numeracy, I would vote for the latter. Another topic that would be helpful to add is teaching to people whose first language is not your own.

The course is worthwhile as it is. I hope a new edition is released.
