  1. 1. Induction Session 3 Teaching & learning approaches For Health. For Life.
  2. 2. Lecture with visual facilitation Strengths • Effective way of covering a large amount of information. • Ideal for large groups • Can be used with a wide range of visual facilitation tools e.g. whiteboard, PowerPoint, videos, flipchart. Limitations • Quality depends on skills of the trainer e.g. voice projection. • Learners are passive and may not learn from just listening to the trainer. • Not well suited for delivering, complex, abstract materil.
  3. 3. Ice-breaker Strengths • Effective way of introducing course participants to each other & to the facilitator (s).. • Enable adults to feel more at ease, morecomfortable sharing their experiences with each other. • Can be used to transition to a new topic in the session. Limitations • Some learners may not want to take part. • May not be inclusive especially if it is a kinetic exercise or energiser. • If not facilitated properly may be boring or reduce group cohesion
  4. 4. Case Study Strengths • Bridge the gap between theory and practice, between the training and the workplace • Can be used for individual or for group work. • Can utilise course participants’ experience and existing knowledge Limitations • Can be more time consuming than other teaching methods • Some participants may not see the case study as relevant to their work or situation. • May not be enough experience in the room to generate solutions or discussion around the case study.
  5. 5. Buzz Groups Strengths • Enables course particicipants to interact with each other. • Doesn’t require formal feedback. • Some learners are more comfortable contributing to a small group discussion, rather than a whole class discussion. Limitations • Learners may go “off-topic”. • Checking that individual learning has taken place is difficult, especially with a large number of learners. • A few leaners may dominate the discussion
  6. 6. Video/DVD/online recording Strengths • Suits younger course attendees and those with visual learning preferences. • Can be given the link to watch the session again, outside of the training room. • Ideal for a large group Limitations • Requires effective facilitation of a follow-up discussion. • Can raise a large number of questions or issues that cannot be covered in the time available for discussion. • Can be technical issues access an online video especially of delivering the training off-site.
  7. 7. Brainstorming Strengths • Can be trainer led or learner led. • Builds on existing knowledge and experience of learners. Limitations • Some learners might be overpowering and dismiss the contributions of others • Some lerners
