2 Week Course: Creativity, Innovation, Motivation and New Teaching Methodologies - Florence

Rating: 5/56 users

This course has been created for teachers who want to learn more about managing an effective classroom that encourages participation, as well as to add a touch of creativity in teaching and to use the latest classroom tools.

Participants will try out a set of activities that they can easily replicate in their classrooms to engage students and stimulate their critical thinking, especially through the use of ICT tools and virtual resources.
In this course, participants will also refresh their classroom management toolbox: they will learn how to boost motivation, establish classroom rules, provide clear instructions, monitor, develop rapport, incorporate pair and group work, assess complex skills.

By the end of the course, participants will have gained greater insight into what makes a classroom run smoothly and will enjoy having a set of concrete ideas on how to apply innovative strategies to involve learners.

Attending the course was very rewarding and fulfilling for me and I have to give special thanks to Europass, both the administrative team and my teachers, Mrs Ilaria Barbieri and Dr Sheila Corwin, for the organization and the up to date, motivating, experiential content and activities of the course, as well as, for the opportunities for meaningful exchange, collaboration and networking with fellow teachers from different countries and educational contexts. The course was perfectly suited to the European Development Plan of my school and the individual needs of my teaching context as an English Language primary school teacher. Giving an insight on creative, innovative methodology with the use of ICT tools, focusing on its prerequisites, good classroom management and motivation and offering cultural tours in mesmerizing Florence and Tuscany made the course a worthwhile,memorable, highly recommended experience.

This is a course which combined two one-week courses with two different teachers for each week. The first week we had a teacher who was not very efficient, I was very disappointed since not much was taught during that period. First day was all presentations, last day was farewells and in between little was learned that I could take to my class. However, the second week with Tatiana was much positive. She is an experienced teacher with many resources and with the ability of keeping us engaged and show practical tools to use with our students. To sum up, I think it depends on the teacher you get. Also, we didn't get the "Meeting about ERASMUS+ opportunities for schools, teachers and learners". When I asked about it they told me that these meetings are not held during the summer sessions.

Great course, great teacher. We were introduced to different techniques and tools to work in different ways with our students. It enriched my teaching and we were also given tips on how to use efficiently some well known web platforms. We also had two interesting city tours, thank you for this lovely week. I recommend Europass.
