SUGGESTED COMPUTER PROFICIENCY: INTERMEDIATE
This course encompasses all aspects of e-learning and instructional design within the classroom, as well as focussing on powerful Learning Management Systems to encourage and facilitate collaborative learning and inclusive education.
There is an immense wealth of electronic resources currently available to teachers, which, harnessed properly, can have a hugely beneficial impact on the learning process of their students, making it more efficient, appealing and practical. Participants will acquire mastery of the main open-source authoring tools, which will allow them to design and create their very own learning projects for their students.
Learning Management Systems are already widely considered to be powerful learning tools which can be adapted for various educational purposes in the classroom. Participants will learn how to use LMS to promote collaborative learning in the classroom as well as encourage inclusive education. These tools are highly effective in reaching out to students and fully engaging them in lessons, making the learning more enjoyable and streamlined. They will use the online LMS platform Moodle throughout the course to develop and build their own learning tools.
Guided city tours and 1 full day cultural excursion (usually on the first Saturday) will also be part of the programme.
