Can teachers be innovators too?

The word ‘innovation’ seems to pop up everywhere these days. But what does it mean to be innovative in your teaching? Does it really only relate to technology? Are there risks associated with being innovative? Are we rewarded for being innovative?

In this recording, Gemma Clarke explores what innovation really means and how we identify whether we are innovative in our teaching practice. She discusses the risks associated with being innovative using the case of Eric Mazur’s peer to peer learning as an example. To close, she offers some suggestions for how teachers can be rewarded for being innovators.
