Participants will accumulate hands-on learning through a series of activities including discussion boards, live online seminars, video demonstrations, case studies, project reports, and presentations. Live online sessions will be delivered over a three to three and half-hour duration for each training module in the series during which participants will acquire insights that they can actively apply to their schools, classrooms, and personal development after the course.
The training will focus on functional outcomes for teachers such as being able to; (i) equip and systematically supervise their students to apply critical thinking in their self-directed study of any standard textbook or learning medium e.g. helping students apply the EmoEles self-directed learning system as a means to discourage their tendencies to use rote methods in the learning of their subjects; (ii) use EmoEles as a time-saving learner-centered pedagogy option e.g. equip students to use the EmoEles self-directed learning system to self-study their topics ahead of their class lessons and share their learning during the class while the teacher relates as a guide and facilitator; (iii) use EmoEles as a reflection tool e.g. apply their understanding of the EmoEles learning system in reflecting upon experiences, tasks, and shortcomings in a lesson, or equip students to be using their EmoEles study-notebooks as media for also writing reflective logs about their self-directed study.
The methods of assessment will, among others, emphasize participants’ hands-on application of what they have learned to improve teaching and learning in their schools and classrooms.
The four (4) course modules in this training are structured as follows:
- How to Stimulate Critical Thinking in Self-directed Study with EmoEles: A Pedagogical Perspective.
