(R&DA 13) Does school-based initial teacher training affect secondary school performance?
This project uses existing data on school and pupil performance to detect whether the numbers of teachers in training affects pupil performance. It concludes that there is ‘no effect’ with fewer than 10 trainees and positive effects in the 5% of schools with more than 20 trainees. The project was supported by a TDA Research and Development Award.
(R&DA 11) E-Learning and Communication on a Flexible PGCE
This research and development project report finds that data from one PGCE course indicates a great potential in electronic communication to deliver a flexible PGCE route but that it is expensive to deliver. Integration of full time and flexible routes is suggested as a cost effective solution. Supported by a TDA Research and Development Award (R&DA).

This is a resource released as part of the E-Portfolio Toolkit based on experience of developing the “Year Abroad E-Portfolio”, undertaken by the School of Languages at Leeds Metropolitan University.
This is an unusual way to teach prepositions. The insructor intended this video for ESL learners, but others can learn from it as well. There is no commentary--just the song with explanatory captions at the bottom. The song used is A Horse With No Name by the group America.
Students will use the creative elements of character analysis and improvisation to develop a character for performance. While this unit's theme is the development of characters for performance, its overarching goal is to provide French immersion students with the opportunity to extend their discourse and further develop their speaking skills. This unit does not cover articulation or pronunciation exercises. For this reason these elements of performance are not being evaluated in the unit assessm
