ZANKER, N. and OWEN-JACKSON, G., 2013. What makes a good technology teacher? IN: Owen-Jackson, G. (ed.) Debates in Design and Technology Education. Debates in Subject Teaching. Abingdon: Routledge, pp. 86 - 97.
There has been much debate, spanning many decades and across many countries,
about what constitutes teachers' professional knowledge, what makes teachers
effective and how to define 'effective' teaching. This chapter considers these
debates and how they might impact on design and technology (D&T) teachers.
It also looks at the different routes into teaching and the influence that these
might have on the debates.
