Reflections

Now that you have completed the MOOC, reflect on this module as a whole. Use these three questions as a starting point and document your responses in any way that feels appropriate.  This could be a voice recording of your thoughts, a short video or handwritten notes. Whatever it is, consider the reflection to be more important than the documentation. 

  1. How have you developed your understanding of what it means to be a teacher in our current education system?
  2. Why is the process of teaching and learning so complex, and why does it extend beyond simple notions of teaching the right content at the right time?
  3. How are you now thinking more critically about the way that education is organised in the UK, and the way that ideology and politics influences this?
