All Aboard the Primary Classroom. Methodology for Primary Teachers 1 week
The aim of this course is for teachers and teacher trainers to experience a range of interesting activities linking methodology and learning theories to the Primary Classroom today. Sessions are practical, include a focus on multi-media and technology for teaching purposes, and help teachers reflect on their approach to teaching today’s pupils.
Who is it for
Primary level and Kindergarten teachers who would like to refresh their teaching methods and techniques. Participants on this course need to be at a B1 level of English.
Sessions demonstrate current approaches, methodologies & techniques
An interactive communicative approach is applied, which provides participants with their own experiential learning of the activities & methodologies. Input sessions are in the form of hands-on workshops, and involve brainstorming, analysis, problem-solving, and role-play, both in pair work & group work.
Teachers are asked to reflect on the activities, inviting discussion with regard to their own pedagogical knowledge & skills, teaching methods & contexts, and on adaptation of activities to their teaching & learning situations.
Both teaching & learning are explored, analysed and discussed, further enabling the participants’ use of their communication skills in English.
