PROBLEM SOLVING AND TASK BASED LEARNING: INNOVATION IN THE CLASSROOM

Rating: 0/5

This course focuses on active learning; learning based on tasks, not on memorising. According to Bloom’s taxonomy, there are many levels of learning: from remembering to creating. Remembering is at the very bottom of the learning pyramid, and it is the most present in schools of today. On this course, we will pay great attention to how to use activities in the classroom that stimulate processes such as analysing, evaluating, applying and creating. Participants will learn how to organise their lesson in a more active way, primarily focusing on learning by doing. We will compare traditional learning to alternative learning methods. Participants will be actively involved in performing problem and project-based activities. More creative approach in the classroom means more innovation; students have to end the lesson with the result, concrete product of their learning.
