Summarizing a half century of work on the problem of identifying units of analysis for complex human behaviour, this book introduces modes of practice as a unit of analysis for the science and design of human activities, and shows how to record them and create field guides at scales from individual to society. Revealing scientific analysis of human practices has been hampered by the lack of a unit of analysis, Dirlam describes how the difficulties of defining a unit are overcome by combining insights from mathematics and human development. Part II presents methods for developmental surveys and interviews that enable social scientists, designers, and education or training assessment professionals to gather data on modes of practice. Part III provides practical descriptions of how to organize interviews into developmental surveys that can be used by a community. Part IV inspires future advances in research and design. Concrete examples from science, design, and learning assessment are used throughout, and the appendix includes the results of 300 developmental interviews, organized into exploratory descriptions of modes of practice and commitment.

New Learning Modes for Sequential Decision Making

New Learning Modes for Sequential Decision Making

This thesis considers the problem in which a teacher is interested in teaching action policies to computer agents for sequential decision making. The vast majority of policy learning algorithms o er teachers little flexibility in how policies are taught. In particular, one of two learning modes is typically considered: 1) Imitation learning, where the teacher demonstrates explicit action sequences to the learner, and 2) Reinforcement learning, where the teacher designs a reward function for the learner to autonomously optimize via practice. This is in sharp contrast to how humans teach other humans, where many other learning modes are commonly used besides imitation and practice. This thesis presents novel learning modes for teaching policies to computer agents, with the eventual aim of allowing human teachers to teach computer agents more naturally and efficiently. Our first learning mode is inspired by how humans learn: through rounds of practice followed by feedback from a teacher. We adopt this mode to create computer agents that learn from several rounds of autonomous practice followed by critique feedback from a teacher. Our results show that this mode of policy learning is more e effective than pure reinforcement learning, though important usability issues arise when used with human teachers. Next we consider a learning mode where the computer agent can actively ask questions to the teacher, which we call active imitation learning. We provide algorithms for active imitation learning that are proven to require strictly less interaction with the teacher than passive imitation learning. We also show that empirically active imitation learning algorithms are much more efficient than traditional passive imitation learning in terms of amount of interaction with the teacher. Lastly, we introduce a novel imitation learning mode that allows a teacher to specify shaping rewards to a computer agent in addition to demonstrations. Shaping rewards are additional rewards supplied to an agent for accelerating policy learning via reinforcement learning. We provide an algorithm to incorporate shaping rewards in imitation learning and show that it learns from fewer demonstrations than pure imitation learning. We wrap up by presenting a prototype User-Initiated Learning (UIL) system that allows an end user to demonstrate procedures containing optional steps and instruct the system to autonomously learn to predict when the optional steps should be executed, and remind the user if they forget. Our prototype supports user-initiated demonstration and learning via a natural interface, and has a built-in automated machine learning engine to automatically train and install a predictor for the requested prediction problem.

The goal of this book is to present proven approaches to both curriculum development and general teaching methods which, when used in tandem, will foster educational success in students with special needs. Although retaining many principles, practices and instructional strategies that have been field tested and proven successful through five previous editions, the Sixth Edition has been significantly revised to reflect many contemporary themes in education.

School policies encourage, support, and ensure that teachers’ professional learning and development occur through their participation within teacher-supported communities of practice. This study has implications for the teachers’ communities of practice, in that policy makers and school administrators should enable teachers to share their teaching practices to improve their mathematics pedagogical content knowledge, and therefore improve students’ learning of mathematics.

This book explores policy and practice in Teacher Education in South Africa and their implications for the future. It arises from the work of the Multi Site Teacher Education Research Programme (MUSTER) co-ordinated by the University of Sussex in five countries, of which South Africa is one. Teacher education in South Africa is in transition. The first wave of educational reform rightly focused on the need to develop a post-apartheid school curriculum and the new structures that were needed to support different approaches to learning. Teacher education was made a Provincial competence and left largely untouched until new norms and standards and a regulatory framework began to be developed.

Today's classroom presents a wealth of opportunities for social interaction amongst pupils, leading to increased interest in teachers and researchers into the social nature of learning. While classroom interaction can be a valuable tool for learning, it does not necessarily lead to useful learning experiences. Through case studies, this book highlights the use of new analytical methodologies for studying the content and patterns of children's interactions and how these contribute to their construction of knowledge. Classroom Interaction and Social Learning will be of interest to students and in service teachers and researchers concerned with classroom discourse and learning.
