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 and classroom tools.
During the first week of the course, participants will actively learn how to create and adapt audio-visual resources (photos, movies, music clips, documentaries, new videos…) to teach their subjects in a more effective way. All this helps student to absorb and retain ideas, and in the development of communicative, critical, social and creative skills.
During the second week, participants will expand their reflection to considering how to establish classroom rules, provide clear instructions, monitor, develop rapport, incorporate pair and group work, and gain tips for encouraging students to reflect on their own classroom behavior. Assessment and evaluation will also be addressed along with the incorporation of student portfolios, rubrics, and presentation strategies.
In this seminar, participants will also have the chance to focus on how to manage an up-to-date classroom through the use of new tools and technology (Edmodo, Google, online quizzes and many others).
By the end of the course, students will have gained greater insight into what makes a classroom run smoothly and what it takes to “Flip” their own classrooms. They will also become more familiar with Project and Task Based Learning and take away ideas for evaluating student learning and participation effectively. In addition, upon completion of the course participants will be aware of strengths and weaknesses of different visual tools and will know how to exploit them in the classroom in a safe and useful way. All this will allow them to enhance their students’ engagement and to improve communication within the class. Guided city tours and 1 full day cultural excursion (usually on Saturday) will also be part of the program.
