This presentation is around the theme “Preparing teachers for knowledgeable action”. I mainly talk about the nature of teachers' actionable knowledge and productive learning and assessment tasks.
1. Seeing teachers’ knowledge and learning form a ‘practice' perspective (I briefly introduce ways in which we have been looking at professional skilfulness and preparation)
2. Unpacking teachers’ resourcefulness for knowledgeable action (I briefly give some insights into what we call "epistemic fluency", particularly what makes teacher’s action “knowledgeable” and knowledge “actionable")
3. Assessment artefacts: what do they say us about work readiness, knowledgeability, and capability for knowledgeable action? (here, I will give some insights into what kinds of artefacts teachers are actually asked to produce and submit for assessment and what they say us about what teachers know and should be able to do)
4. Innovation pedagogy as an approach to prepare and assess work-capable graduates (some examples into how learning through innovation looks like and some (provocative) suggestions how ‘measurement’ of teachers’ readiness could look like).
