Course Description

Rapid changes in today’s world are emphasizing the importance of soft skills (such as critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, and communication) in school education. Teachers are, thus, expected to adapt their curricula and embrace new pedagogical practices to effectively promote these capacities among young learners.

This course will help teachers to expand their repertoire of pedagogical skills to meet such novel needs. In particular, it will introduce four fundamental student-centered approaches that are gaining momentum around the world: project-based learning (PBL), technology-enhanced learning (TEL), collaborative learning, and design thinking for creative problem-solving.

As a participant, you will develop practical step-by-step know-hows on each of these pedagogies. You will learn to incorporate them into your real-life contexts through exploring their main features, learning about best practices, discussing pros and cons, and implementing the use of rubrics to assess learning outcomes.

By the end of the course, you will be familiar with the key features of student-centered learning and feel more ready and confident to adopt them in your classes. You will also take away lesson plans and activities that help you to initiate the transformation of pedagogical practices in your classroom and school. A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. For the participants of this course, being a 21st-century teacher will stop being a word on paper, and eventually turn into reality.

All the teachers and the atmosphere was very friendly in our group. We were working in groups during workshops and various activities, were putting in practice both new apps and platforms, helping each other to achieve the aim of the task. In particular I am grateful to the wonderful teacher Pui for the fascinating layout of the course. The teacher always started our course by Finnish culture and traditions, then moved on to complex topics. So, not a single course day was boring. As for me, I was the oldest person in the group, I slightly felt the generation gap with the youngest ones but they all were understanding towards me. Thanks again to our teacher Pui.

It was a useful, inspiring, motivating and enriching course about effective and active pedagogies for the 21st century learning where we exchange knowledge and culture with other participants from Portugal, Poland, Lithuania and Spain. It was super well prepared and the contents well transmitted, in a practical way in most cases. i'd love to have had the opportunity to visit a FINNISH SCHOOL and see the education by first hand, involving ourselves in their activities.
