Teaching strategies

  1. 1. Teaching Strategies
  2. 2. “He who learns but does not think, is lost. He who thinks but does not learn is in great danger.” -Confucius
  3. 3. 1. Lecture Method Lectures are the way most instructors today learned in classes. However, with today’s students, lecturing does not hold their attention for very long, even though they are a means of conveying information to students.
  4. 4. How to make the lecture approach more effective:
  5. 5. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Fit the lecture to the audience Focus your topic (remember you cannot cover everything in one lecture) Prepare an outline that includes 5-9 major points you want to cover in one lecture Organize your points for clarity Select appropriate examples or illustrations. Present more than one side of an issue and be sensitive to other perspectives. Repeat points when necessary. Be aware of your audience (notice their feedback) Be enthusiastic. (you don’t have to be and entertainer but you should be excited by your topic)
  6. 6. 2.Writing assignments Writing assignments for class can provide an opportunity for them to apply critical thinking skills as well as help them to learn course content.
  7. 7. WHAT? ASSIGNMENTS!?
  8. 8. When somebody reminds the teacher about homework…
  9. 9. 3. Games/Experiments/Simulations Games, experiments and simulations can be rich learning environment for students. Students today may have grown up playing games and using interactive tools such as the Internet, phones, and other appliances. Games and simulations enables students to solve the real-world problems in a safe environment and enjoy themselves while doing so.
  10. 10. 4. Cooperative/Collaborative learning Cooperative and collaborative learning are instructional approaches on which the students work together in small groups to accomplish a common learning goal. They need to be carefully planned and executed, but they don’t require permanently formed groups.
  11. 11. 5. Experiential Learning Experiential learning is an approach to education that focuses on “learning by doing” on the participant’s subjective experience. the role of the educator is to design “direct experiences” that include preparatory and reflective exercises.
  12. 12. 6. Mobile Learning Mobile learning is any type of learning that happens when the learner is not at a fixed location. The learner takes advantage of learning opportunities that is offered by mobile technologies. From the instructor’s perspective, using mobile tools for creating learning aides and materials becomes an important part of student learning.
  13. 13. 7. Active Learning Active learning is anything students do in a classroom other than merely passively listening to an instructor’s lecture. Research shows that active learning improves students’ understanding and retention of information and can be very effective in developing higher order cognitive skills such as problem solving and critical thinking.
