Introduction

Foundations of Teaching introduces you to the study of teaching as a profession and dimensions of teacher relationships and work, Through acquiring skills to critically reflect on your assumptions based on past educational experiences and attitudes and beliefs about teaching and teachers, you will have the opportunity to engage at a deep level with both research and your new experiences of teaching. Content explored in this unit relates to teacher reflection, teacher professionalism, teaching strategies, teacher gratitude, and the pragmatics of teachers' work such as establishing a positive and supportive classroom environment, communication as a teacher, and observation skills. Your participation in this unit therefore establishes a sound base to develop your knowledge and professional practice for the duration of the course and beyond.
