Student-centered Classroom: Teachers as Promoters of Active Learning! - Florence

Rating: 5/54 users

This course has been created for teachers who want to learn more about managing an effective and up to date classroom that encourages participation and engaged learning using the latest techniques.

Through interactive activities, participants will learn how to promote a student-centred learning environment. Student-centred methods have been proven to be superior to the traditional teacher-centred approach to education. Student-centred methods sustain both students’ autonomy and cooperation. They also facilitate short and long-term memory, critical thinking, problem-solving skills, self-confidence and motivation.

By the end of the course, participants will not only have acquired more knowledge about student-centred approaches, but they will also be able to take away ideas about practical, innovative solution to apply in their classrooms.

- Awareness about what supports effective learning;
- Choosing practical solutions to encourage students to solve problems, formulate complex questions, debate, explain and brainstorm during class;
- Managing and evaluating team-work while students are involved in cooperative projects and problem-solving tasks;
- Supporting students in facing challenges and in learning by doing;
- Theoretical knowledge and practical skills about new methods such as: the Flipped Classroom, Project-Based Learning, Problem-Based Learning, Case-Based Instruction, Discovery Learning.

All our courses in Florence include: 2 city guided tour + 1 full day Tuscan Excursion (usually on Saturday).

This course was very useful to learn about different methods of a student-centered classroom and to develop techniques like flipped classroom or problem and project based learning. The course was also very interactive and motivating and encouraged me to apply these methods in my daily practice.

I strongly recommend this course for anyone who would like to improve their teaching skills and take them to the next level. Our instructor Sheila was well-prepared, knowledgeable, friendly and engaging so that we could learn and communicate in the best possible environment. Teachers from all over the world shared their knowledge and we all felt encouraged to work on practical examples that could fit in our individual school context.
