  1. Loved going through your NAPTOSA presentation. Very informative. There is some very interesting research on teacher competencies and educational quality which really backs up your claim about low teacher CK resulting in limited cognitive development for learners. It also opens old debates about the value of C2005, RNCS etc etc and its efficacy in a South African context (weakly classified and framed curriculum requires subject specialists hence the demise of the implementation of ‘OBE’).Brings me back to our current debate on the merits of the PGCE vs the BEd degree. That would make for interesting research, Who are the more valuable teachers in raising the quality of their pedagogic practices? I hazard a guess that PGCE trained educators come out tops but that is a very subjective statement based on experience of both programmes. Excellent research!
