Big Ideas, Globalization and Teacher Education

The research group studies the impact of global discourses on the professional activities of teachers.

 

Given that big ideas and thinking paradigms have a great influence on human behavior, concepts that are formed as a result of reflecting personal experience, as well as from elements of the existing discursive field, are of interest to researchers.

The social importance and responsibility of teaching as an activity and as a process is indisputable. Particular interest is paid on how teachers’ perceptions of their professional activities, of the school and of the students are formed, how they are influenced by the paradigms that dominate educational and broader discourses, and how these perceptions affect the daily activity of teachers in the classroom and the results of students.

The group also raises questions on teacher education role in the reproduction and transformation of these dominant paradigms.

Keywords: education, teacher, preconceptions, educational paradigms, educational discourse, quality of education, teacher education

University of Southampton Scientist Invites Teachers to Become Talk Show Hosts in His Videos

John Schultz, PhD, Director of Video & Digital Media Studio at the University of Southampton and Director of the Online Master's Program in Pedagogy, specializes in online and video learning. Over 10 years ago, he developed the University of Southampton Master's online program in Pedagogy. His speech at the Forum will focus on changing the attitude of teachers towards video technologies in education and changing the format of recording lectures from “professor on stage” to “professor as a talk show host”.

The multimedia studio of Professor John Schultz was founded in 2010. At the moment it is a studio equipped with lighting, professional cameras and editing tools. John Schultz has created many teaching and learning videos. His video series on basic research methods in education is used by research students, academics and universities around the world.

Professor Schultz is interested in social psychology and, in particular, social cognition, therefore his scientific interests are focused on the role of cognitive processes in understanding the world.

John is currently working on a joint e-learning project with academics at Kazan Federal University, developing online education programs for Masters in Pedagogy.

At the VII International Forum on Teacher Education, John Schultz will present his report “Video in Education: from“ smart guy on stage ”to“ talk show host ”. Where to go?" Two weeks before the start of the Forum, a scientist from the University of Southampton gave a thesis about what will be discussed in his speech.

“In the 1990s, the image of a professor at the center of attention of an audience of attentive students and giving a lecture was heavily criticized,” John said. “For some, this approach promotes passive learning and prevents them from developing much-needed skills in the 21st century. Over the past 30 years, little has changed: lectures continue to dominate higher education. But it's worth noting that other teaching approaches have also become popular, such as blended learning, flipped classrooms, and online learning. Already quite often we hear that teachers write down some elements of their lectures in advance and invite students to familiarize themselves with it in advance, thus allocating more time during personal meetings for discussion and interaction.

I will present to the Forum participants how video materials in education have changed over 30 years and how noticeable the focus shift is when the format changes from the pre-existing Professor as a Screen Star to Professor as a Talk Show Host.
