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.
The first week will provide participants with thorough expertise about how to promote a student-centered learning environment. Student-centered methods sustain both students’ autonomy and cooperation. They also facilitate short and long-term memory, critical thinking, problem-solving skills, self-confidence, and motivation.
During the second week of the course, participants will focus on how audio-visual tools can support students and teachers’ involvement: participants will actively learn how to manage audio-visual resources (photos, movies, music clips, documentaries, new videos…) to teach their subjects in a more effective way.
By the end of the course, participants will take away ideas about the practical, innovative solution to apply in their classrooms: the Flipped Classroom, Project-Based Learning, Problem-Based Learning, Case-Based Instruction, Discovery Learning, Photo and Video management, creation of Video projects for educational purposes (writing scripts, shooting, editing, dubbing and adding subtitles).
The course will help the participants to:
- Choose practical solutions to encourage students to solve problems, formulate complex questions, debate, explain and brainstorm during class;
- Manage and evaluating team-work while students are involved in cooperative projects and problem-solving tasks;
- Support students in facing challenges and in learning by doing;
- Know how to manage students’ teamwork to create a script and a video;
