Description

This course has been created for teachers who want to learn more about how to stimulate innovation and creativity amongst their students.

There are many products and services that can help teachers to motivate and stimulate their students. These products and services come with detailed lesson plans that are easy to implement in the classroom. During the course participants will experience new teaching methods and strategies that can educate and engage their students. At the same time the participants will learn how and when to incorporate design-related skills and creative activities.

Innovative education provides an opportunity to teach effectively but in a more fun and stimulating way. This approach to teaching will allow students to discover how subjects can relate in real life situations which will therefore increase their problem-solving skills, determination, and desire to learn.
The course will offer a series of hands-on activities, group discussions and a chance to design thought-provoking exercises which teachers will then be able to use as a framework once they are back in their classrooms.

By the end of the course teachers will have gained and insight in how to encourage innovation in their students and will be able to apply new and challenging activities into their classroom.
