Innovative teaching methodologies

Course description

Course overview and purpose:
Innovative teaching is more than introducing the latest and greatest technology into the classroom. Instead, it is the self-reflective process of proactively introducing new teaching strategies and methods into the classroom. The purpose of introducing innovative teaching methodologies is to solve real problems in a fresh and simple way, to improve student achievements and to promote equity.
The course aim is to raise awareness about new methodologies such as the flipped classroom, co-operative learning, project-based learning, and inquiry-based learning. You will learn how to use them in class, and what the differences are. You will be engaged in practical activities and discussions and find out about best practices and why they work.
So, tell us more about why you need to innovate your teaching practice and we will suggest the best methodology to adapt to your context!

Learning outcomes:

  • Acquire information on the latest teaching methodologies and strategies such as the flipped classroom, co-operative learning, project-based learning, and inquiry-based learning
  • Understand the differences between different teaching methods

Course dates are made available based on the availability of trainers but are “confirmed” only once the minimum number of participants is reached.

Course dates are usually listed Sunday to Sunday. The course usually takes place Monday to Friday and the full-day trip usually takes place on Saturday, so Sundays are arrival and departure days for those who book course, activities and accommodation. You can leave earlier if you book just the course.

If you are looking for dates either not listed above or “To be confirmed”, please pre-register to your favourite dates so we can track your interest, liaise with everybody to convey participants to the same dates and make them confirmed!
