The LS idea; a comment on Lo Mun Ling's Editorial in Vol. 3 No. 2, 2014
Article Type: Discussion From: International Journal for Lesson and Learning Studies, Volume 3, Issue 3.
One of the critical aspects of Lesson study and Learning study is that teachers participate in developing their own professional knowledge. They do so by engaging in studies of the relationship between learning and the conditions of learning. Such studies yield pedagogical insights that are the points of departure for contributing to more powerful student learning. These insights are in the best case explicit, evidence-based and theoretical. This is one kind of pedagogical knowledge, unique in the sense that in order to put it to the test it has to be embodied in the teachers. They cannot just use pedagogical knowledge, they must be involved in bringing it about.
