When I undertook the PTTLS course at Highbury College in 2009, it was part of my job specification and requirements. According to the instructor, I adopted a ‘conscripted attitude’; upon reflection, I can not argue this point. I approached every task as a chore and I aimed to only achieve the basic requirements. My view on my teaching practice was; I knew my specialism, I can show my studetns how to use cameras and that this course is not helping me achieve that. My approach to this DET course, is a contrast, I am hungry for knowledge and skills on how to better my educational practice.
