Teaching as a Design Science

Teaching is changing. It is no longer simply about passing on knowledge to the next generation. Teachers in the twenty-first century, in all educational sectors, have to cope with an ever-changing cultural and technological environment. Teaching is now a design science. Like other design professionals – architects, engineers, programmers – teachers have to work out creative and evidence-based ways of improving what they do. Yet teaching is not treated as a design profession. Every day, teachers design and test new ways of teaching, using learning technology to help their students. Sadly, their discoveries often remain local. By representing and communicating their best ideas as structured pedagogical patterns, teachers could develop this vital professional knowledge collectively. Teacher professional development has not embedded in the teacher’s everyday role the idea that they could discover something worth communicating to other teachers, or build on each others’ ideas. Could the culture change? From this unique perspective on the nature of teaching, Diana Laurillard argues that a twenty-first century education system needs teachers who work collaboratively to design effective and innovative teaching.

"....this book deserves a wide readership. Practising teachers should find plenty to interest them. It looks like a clear favourite for the reading lists of students on initial teacher training courses.." - Design and Technology Teaching "This book is very readable, besides being an important source of reference. It should be part of any induction courses for design and technology teacher training." - Design and Technology Times Design and technology is crucial to the national economy and to individual employment prospects. John Eggleston shows how this area of work has come to occupy a new and central place in the school curriculum, and highlights the higher status and a new identity now accorded to technology. He explores this new identity, its origins, its manifestations in classroom practice, and its possible futures. He pays particular attention to its role in the national curriculum, to assessment, to gender and race issues, and to management, and includes two entirely new chapters on the training of design and technology teachers and on design and technology in classroom practice. This best-selling book has been fully revised in the light of the new National Curriculum for Design and Technology which took effect in 2000 and will continue to be essential reading for all trainee and practising teachers of design and technology.
