The term pedagogy is generally used to refer to the strategies or methods used by teachers in their teaching practices. However, as teaching has become more research-informed, the use of the word pedagogy has been increasingly used to refer to theory, beliefs, methods, intentions, strategies, approaches, practices, and politicised pedagogy. This has led to a lack of precision in our thinking and discussions in schools – and perhaps inconsistent messages about how to improve future practice. This practical workshop will: Provide clear definitions for your pedagogical vocabulary as a teacher; help you to clarify your own pedagogical beliefs; set out practical examples that illustrate the importance of precision when talking about pedagogy; and illustrate why precision in pedagogy directly impacts learner experiences and, crucially, their outcomes.
