“Guide students in discovering and creating knowledge themselves, and collaborate effectively within the classroom.”

Welcome to this dual course aimed to help you understand more about learning strategies for the 21st century. This dual course consists of the following 5 hour courses:

  • Inquiry-based Learning
  • Classroom Collaboration

Teaching successfully in the 21st century, requires a close look at what it means to teach and learn in increasingly networked, technology-rich, digital classrooms. Schools and teachers need to thoughtfully and intentionally design learning environments and tasks in which teachers explore issues that are relevant, while developing pedagogies that are effective for the current knowledge era. To equip teachers in this scenario, the first section of this dual online course, offers a framework to plan lessons that promote Inquiry-based Learning (IBL). Through multiple classroom examples, teachers are shown what roles they play and how they can encourage student initiative, while ensuring that the focus remains on productive learning. In the second section, teachers are shown how they can implement collaborative learning in classrooms and thus develop successful learners. This framework enables teachers to recognize characteristics of collaborative classrooms, be aware of student and teacher roles, and practice group activities as an essential part of classroom learning. Teachers are also introduced to school-wide policy reforms in place today that promote collaboration and investigative activities, along with strategies to accommodate learners, including students with special needs. The practical examples, real-life experiences, and templates in this online PD course provide teachers with successful structures to adapt and use in their own classrooms.
