REFLexPLAYn - Reflection and Feedback as Part of the Educational Process, Tool for Developing Relationships, and a Source of Inspiration
This is a course designed by teachers for teachers. Thanks to our school's experience with various innovative methods and the implementation of personal and social education, we have decided to create our own Erasmus Plus course.
Come and learn with us! Play and get inspired! Experience the unique professional environment of Škola da Vinci!
ABOUT OUR COURSE:
Reflection that is conducted properly can be a great source of inspiration. It can make teaching more effective and develop the relationship not only between you and your students, but also the relationships the students have among themselves. This course can become the starting point for your further (self)development and your work with the class.
The core of this dynamic course is play and its subsequent reflection. The course will provide you with a set of activities that are ready to use. You will first try them yourself and, thanks to your personal experience, will then be able to successfully implement them in your classes and adapt them to your goals and needs.
We use activities that have been proven to work. Activities that are full of fun and play. Activities that are innovative, effective, and easily applicable in the class.
WHO IS THE COURSE FOR?
The activities draw on the holistic approach and focus on students age 12 above, including adults, but can be easily adapted to younger students. The subject you teach is not important to the activities, as the approach can be used across various fields, including arts and humanities, natural and social sciences, as well as technical subjects.
The course is also suitable for other professionals working in the field of education, be it school psychologists or special education needs teachers. The activities can also be used when devising team building programmes.
IN OUR COURSE YOU WILL:
- Learn to make use of reflection as a learning tool.
- Experience different types of reflections and how to adjust them to your goals and needs.
- Share examples of good practice.
The content of the course will also be adjusted to your specific needs.
