Classroom in Zambia“Lessons from Global Classrooms” is an online student journal and blog run by the School of Education at the University of Sheffield. The School of Education has a global outlook, and, every year, students from all over the world study with us, either face-to-face or online. Many of our students are working in education contexts themselves, from nursery and early years education, through primary and secondary school, to higher education, both in formal and informal settings. At the core of our teaching philosophy, we seek to ensure our students receive the tools to become reflective and critical practitioners, and many programmes have a research element, asking students to design and conduct a research project that is relevant to their own professional context and development. The lessons learnt from our students’ research enriches our scholarly community as a whole. The purpose of this site is to disseminate work completed by our students all over the world, both to ensure they reach a wider audience, and to share with prospective students the kind of work that goes on within the School. Contributions are either in the form of reflective blog posts/case studies, or research articles based on assessed work. We hope you enjoy reading about our Lessons from Global Classrooms.
