From Teacher To Facilitator
With the rapid explosion of social media and easy access to online content, provision of information will not be the sole responsibility of an educator very soon. Educators will be called upon to engage and facilitate our learners in thinking and understanding. This shift will change our responsibility and our roles from Teacher to Facilitator.
The notion of Learner-Centered Learning has been around for ages. Early theorists like John Dewey, Jean Piaget and Carl Roger have been advocating these ideas of focusing on learner needs and individuality. Recent pedagogies or learning theories such as Multiple Intelligence, Differentiated Instructions, Collaborative Learning and Cooperative Learning are providing the WHY as well as the HOW to support Learner-Centered Learning.
However, when you walk into a classroom or lecture theater, you are still likely to see the “CHALK and TALK” or “FRONTAL TEACHING” approach of teaching being used.
Overall, educators do not lack great learning theories nor do they lack the BIG “How”. Rather they are looking for specific strategies and techniques that they can learn and apply quickly in their classroom.
This is exactly what Pivotal Learning Teacher Workshops are focusing on. In addition to teaching these strategies and techniques, we model them during our workshops.
We utilise Brain-Based Learning and Experiential Learning to support these theories and their application in classrooms. Our workshops range from 3 hours to 2-day sessions. Please contact us for more details.
