Boost motivation, establish classroom rules, provide clear instructions, monitor, develop rapport, incorporate pair and group work, and gain insight into other essential classroom strategies. Educators will be introduced to various teaching methods to help sustain a student-centered learning environment where students maintain an active role, as participants, in their own learning. Far too often, learners are passive and expected to assimilate knowledge that is transferred to them by the teacher who presents information. This course will lead teachers towards new ways and approaches, which they can adopt in part, or entirely, in their own classroom lessons and activities.

Topic 1. Getting started

Are you student-centered enough? Time will be spent on the basics of maintaining a student-centered classroom and teachers will be given the opportunities to rate themselves on their own student-centered competences. Foundations of getting started with methodologies that involve learners will be explored, reflected upon, and discussed.

Topic 2. Flipped Classroom

It’s all about homework at school and schoolwork at home. How can we organize our time with our learners in the most effective way possible? What does it mean to get students to create, evaluate, and analyze in HOTS (Higher Order Thinking Skills) versus LOTS (Lower Order Thinking Skills)? We’ll look at Bloom’s Taxonomy and come up with some conclusions.

Topic 3. Project-Based Learning (PBL)

What are the basic tenets? How does it work? How do I get started? These are the questions that will be explored during this 3rd week of dynamic and student-centered approaches. PBL includes various elements and each one will be explored. Course participants will also be provided with a template to get started with their own ideas for developing student projects at their institutions.

Topic 4. Task-Based Learning (TBL)

An approach that was originally created for language teachers, TBL can also be used by all academic subject teachers in the quest for a more involved learning experience on a much smaller scale (when compared with PBL). We’ll take a deeper look at this student-centered concept and be shown some models in addition to Jane Willis’ interpretation and TBL Framework.

Topic 5. Formative Assessment

Along the way means a lot. What is the main difference between formative and summative assessment and why is it important? How can we assess our learners and ourselves as educators? In this final session, the benefits of formative assessment and the various ways that assessment can be used to everyone’s benefit will be investigated and examined.
