Explore the power of teaching and how interactive learning can aid the classroom
Active learning is the leading innovative teaching approach in education today. It encourages teachers to foster a more student-centred, interactive and participatory approach to learning.
On this course, you’ll develop a deep understanding of active learning – effectively promoting learning by engaging learners interactively and encouraging teamwork and collaboration among students.
You’ll challenge assumptions about teaching, learning with a community of educators to freely discuss the challenges of teaching and share successful practices, plans, and effective teaching strategies.
This course is for a variety of audiences who teach adults in either formal (higher education, training in business and industry) or nonformal educational settings and have an interest in innovating and improving their teaching practice.
This would include faculty in higher education, trainers/directors of training working in business and industry, public and private school teachers working with high school students, and educators that teach in cultural institutions (eg., libraries, museums, parks, zoos).
