Teaching, Leading, Learning

Monaghan Education Centre invites interested parties to contribute articles for publication in the second edition of our annual journal, Spring 2019. The focus this year will be on pedagogy with a particular emphasis on strategies that have resulted in good learning outcomes for students, and teachers. We are keen to highlight examples and instances of good practice and research that you might have conducted, in order to share this experience and knowledge with fellow teachers.

“Effective Pedagogy in the Post-Primary Classroom”

  • The booklet will be the first step in a two-step teaching and learning project aimed at the promotion, sharing and development of effective teaching in the modern classroom.
  • Research shows that the single biggest factor in student attainment is effective teaching. There is, however, little research documenting experienced teachers’ classroom practices and their beliefs on why they teach the way they do.
  • I would like to give an opportunity for your school to showcase their good practice and share it with fellow professionals in this publication, while simultaneously supporting the development of effective pedagogy in our education community.

Submissions on teachers’ experience and practice with these or any other aspect of teaching and learning are welcomed:

Learning outcomes

Formative Assessment

Effective Feedback

Collaborative learning

Co-operative learning

Active learning

Independent learning

Student Reflection

Student Engagement

Differentiation

The Effective Use of Digital Technologies

Dialogic Teaching

Oral Language Strategies

Opportunities to acquire and apply knowledge (this is merely a suggested list)

  • Should you require any further information or wish to discuss this project further please do not hesitate to contact me directly.

David Mc Cague.
