The second group of Egyptian teachers have arrived at the University of Leicester. This group are all teachers of maths and their arrival has provoked me to revisit this blog to muse over ideas that have moved on since the last post.
It has got me thinking about how innovation looks from a different direction and has alerted me to the layered nature of teaching. High ideals beyond pedagogy are the order of the day but feet musty be kept firmly on the ground to provide useful and usable opportunities for growth.
I will use this blog to post the progression of thought for the next 10 weeks as the course for these Egyptian teachers develops.
Notes to self:
- Speak more slowly
- Give things more time
- Allow white space to develop
- Listen to the shouts and the whispers
