Teacher Scheme for Educational Dialogue Analysis (T-SEDA)
T-SEDA is an extensive multimedia resource designed for teachers at all educational levels to support their use of classroom dialogue. It helps teachers to systematically examine and develop their own dialogic classroom practices through teacher-led inquiry. Coordination and input from a local peer facilitator promote scalability, sustainability and local ownership.
‘Classroom dialogue’ refers to productive forms of student-teacher and peer group talk in which people build on, and respectfully challenge, others’ ideas. This increases students’ participation in class activities and supports subject learning.
The T-SEDA pack is a research-informed, open multimedia resource that supports practitioners at all educational levels in developing dialogic classroom practices, by leading their own inquiries and impact activities. Its core tools include a self-audit of dialogic teaching practice, guidance on reflective inquiry, a coding scheme for systematically observing and recording dialogic forms of classroom interaction, and illustrative videos.
T-SEDA was developed by researchers and practising teachers at the University of Cambridge. It has been used by over 360 practitioners beyond the team in a range of educational institutions across different countries, age groups and subject areas. Impacts on practice are documented.
