Learning by Doing

Course Description 

Teachers are challenged with a diverse and often mixed ability classroom and are called upon to be able to interact with and engage the students at all levels. Some students require a more optical learning approach while others learn best practically. This course explores in a practical way how to engage students in teaching methods which are interactive, engaging in pair work, small group work and student role play.
