Multiple Intelligences for Deeper Learning

Description

The multiple intelligence theory can draw students back into learning. Using the different types of intelligence to teach a concept gives each of your diverse learners a chance to succeed at learning. Teaching a student strengths helps achieve success in learning.  

By applying the theory of multiple intelligences in the classroom, educators take into consideration the different types of learners they might have in their class, reinforce all types of intelligence in every student, and allow for an individual learning process. 

This course will help educators learn about the theory of Multiple Intelligences through guided self-exploration. You will do this through both formal and informal activities in an enjoyable and exciting program of activities that will allow you to:

  • Explore them through experiences/activities in a reflective setting;
  • Discover your multiple intelligences;
  • Understand their impact on your practice;
  • Identify competencies to develop;
  • Choose the most suitable ways for you to develop them.

You will do this in an intercultural environment learning about yourself, sharing your practice with your peers from around Europe, and working out how to apply this learning when you return to your home country.
