Student-Centered Classroom: Teachers as Promoters of Active Learning

Table of Contents

Description

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.

Through interactive activities, participants will learn how to promote a student-centered learning environment. Student-centered methods have been proven to be superior to the traditional teacher-centered approach to education.

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. 

By the end of the course, participants will not only have acquired more knowledge about student-centered approaches, but they will also be able to take away ideas about practical, innovative solutions to apply in their classrooms.

Learning outcomes

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 evaluate teamwork while students are involved in cooperative projects and problem-solving tasks;
  • Support students in facing challenges and in learning by doing;
