The cumulative number of participants of this project has nearly reached 1,300 teachers in
different subjects from a variety of primary schools in Hong Kong. After attending the public
lessons, participants and teachers of the partnership schools all have a better understanding on the
perspective of analyzing a lesson.
In the evaluation, the average marks given by participants on different aspects of the project were
all over 3, with 4 being the highest possible mark. Based on participants’ open-ended comments,
TALON helped them in the following ways:
- Learn more ways to deal with difficult topics;
- Experience the power of using variation theory to assist in students’ understanding;
- Develop a platform to share their views on dealing with a topic with other teachers; and
- Enhance their professional development and reflect on their own teaching.
