Example text

1988). Physics lecturers, for example, argued that first year physics learning should not simply be a matter of memorising facts and formulae and applying these to familiar types of problems. They insisted that students should relate experiences in the physical world to theoretical concepts. ‘Students have to be able to visualise and understand the situation and say, “Yes, this formula should apply to that situation’”, as one lecturer put it. For these lecturers, an understanding of the role of mathematical models in physics was important; students should appreciate the importance of seeing the relationships among the equations that they encountered rather than seeing them as unrelated formulae applicable to different physical problems: ‘Part of the idea that you’re trying to get across is that it’s profitable to start from simple situations, simple models, and see how and when things depart from this in the real world’.

Tutorials are largely wasted. Many students don’t prepare for them, but just come to copy the answers from the board. This would apply to one-third of the best groups, two-thirds of the worst ones. They believe they already know accounting, when all they have learned is rules and techniques dogmatically. In an earlier investigation of lecturers’ perceptions in the United Kingdom, I found that staff were easily able to distinguish the learning outcomes of their weaker students (the majority) from those of their stronger ones (a small minority) using similar terms.

The activities of teaching and the process of reflecting on them are inextricably linked. Problems in learning may be addressed by changing teaching, but with no certainty of success. Constant monitoring is needed. Yesterday’s solutions might not work today. These three examples highlight important differences in the ways lecturers think about teaching and function as teachers. Success in learning how to improve your own teaching is related to the extent to which you are prepared to conceptualise your teaching as a process of helping students to change their understanding of the subject matter you teach them.
