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

Rating: 5/56 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 Dublin include a city guided tour + 1 full day Irish Excursion (usually on Saturday).

This is a good course if you are just beginning to look for a way to migrate from teacher-centered to student-centered classroom. Participants go through the basics of the student-centered approach and try out some tools and methods that will ease their transition.

My name is Argyri , I participated in the course of Dublin in September. The course and the teacher were really great! I've learnt many interesting ICT tools and I think I can implement them quite well in the classroom. Our teacher provided us educational material and very satisfactory guidance.
