About This Course

In the field of education, becoming a reflective practitioner is a process of inquiry by you as a teacher to improve your teaching and thereby your students’ learning. Areas of focus will be around pedagogic strategies for inclusive and active learning, creating inclusive mathematics learning environments and developing pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) and Technological & Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) in mathematics. The course will adopt a practice-based pedagogy to enable linking your classroom teaching with research-based pedagogical strategies. There are three units of study in this course

Unit 1 Inclusive Education - This unit introduces the learner to the principles and ideas of inclusive education, and the UDL framework for creating inclusive mathematics classrooms
Unit 2 Active Mathematics Learning & Teaching - In this unit participants will engage with pedagogical strategies for active and inclusive classrooms by focussing on learning difficulties in mathematics , developing lesson plans using UDL framework and PCK/TPACK.
Unit 3 Reflective mathematics teacher - In this unit participants will learn how to become reflective mathematics teachers by inquiring into their classroom teaching, noticing student’s learning and mathematical thinking engage in ideas related to the aims of mathematics education, mathematical processes and the ideas of mathematisation as stated in the NCF 2005 curriculum framework..


At the end of this course learners will be able to:

  1. Apply the knowledge of UDL , PCK/TPACK to plan active and inclusive mathematics lessons
  2. Develop pedagogical strategies to create inclusive classroom environments
  3. Develop as reflective practitioner adopting an inquiry approach to teaching mathematics
