Pedagogical Patterns: Advice For Educators

Bergin, Joseph; Eckstein, Jutta; Volter, Markus; Sipos, Marianna; Wallingford, Eugene; Marquardt, Klaus; Chandler, Jane; Sharp, Helen and Manns, Mary Lynn eds. (2012). Pedagogical Patterns: Advice For Educators. Joseph Bergin Software Tools.



This collection of patterns proposes some successful techniques to assist with teaching and learning, especially of technical subjects. For professional educators, these patterns may seem obvious, even trivial, because they have used them so often. But for those newer to teaching, they offer a way to obtain the deep knowledge of experienced teachers.
Patterns are not step-by-step recipes. Each of these offers a format and a process for transferring knowledge that can then be used by a variety of different teachers in many different ways. While most of the authors are involved in some aspect of computing and informatics, and so the examples are mostly drawn from those fields, much of the advice is general enough to be applied to other disciplines. The advice is not restricted to formal education, but has been used in various training scenarios as well.
