Recently started a new position where it's a vocational subject at A' Level and the vast majority of the course is exam based. It's a group of learning centres or MAT's where the curriculum is centralised; so a presentation document is disseminated and double lessons consist of getting the students to copy large amounts of information off the board into exercise books. Although some Q&A and discussion a bit of video resource goes on, they are copying stuff off the board in silence. Computers (good ones) sit in front of them not turned on. Learners have little or no experience of hands on techniques and use of equipment and it's not a main requirement. Digesting proposed theories and regurgitating them in handwriting is the methodology. IS THIS OK?
