This workshop empowers educators with strategies which can be used to develop Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking and Creative Thinking skills in students. These strategies will also create a safe student-centred learning environment that promotes active learning.
Active learners absorb and retain information longer, and find learning more enjoyable regardless of the subject matter. Incorporating collaborative elements into active learning strategies enables students not only to learn with the help of the educator, but also from their peers.
In addition to this, powerful templates that are incorporated in the active learning strategies help to scaffold learning and make learners’ thinking visible. These provide insights into learners’ prior knowledge and reasoning process, thereby allowing educators to offer growth-producing feedback.
