Introduction: Preparing for Teaching

Welcome to the Preparing for Teaching intensive. The first sprint requires you to complete a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) created by the Faculty of Education at Manchester Metropolitan University in collaboration with FutureLearn. This is an introductory course helping you to think more deeply about what might be involved in being a teacher. We will explore aspects of teaching including subject delivery, behaviour management and the ways that schools and subjects are organised.

Please watch the initial video to begin the module exploration, where Mark Sackville-Ford will introduce you to the content.

IMPORTANT: At the end of this MOOC, you have the option of paying for a certificate of completion. However, you do not need to do this in order to complete this pathway.

Click the ‘mark complete’ button when you have watched the video and completed the MOOC on FutureLearn. You will then be able to move onto the next topic.
