This webinar is titled:

I teach! You learn! or not?

Brief summary:

Traditionally teachers and parents tend to think that learners learn what teachers teach. This, we know from experience, is not true mainly because there are a lot of factors that come between our teaching and the learner’s learning.
First of all, it is really demanding for teachers to manage and plan lessons that include all learners, manage to keep learners of different learning styles motivated and engaged and finally lessons which are not fragmented.
How can teachers accomplish that and what is the impact of such a way of teaching on the school, its competitive edge and its positioning in the local market? How can teachers scaffold their learners’ learning and what do learners gain out of this? What do teacher gain in terms of career development and skills’ honing when teaching is such a way?
Finally what is the impact of the classroom climate on the learners and on the outcomes of learning?

After the webinar all participants will receive a certificate of participation.
