Take Your Teaching Up a Notch - Instructional Strategies

Professional Development Opportunities Help Increase Student Learning


The Instructional Strategies course provides participants with the opportunity to experience a variety of instructional strategies and techniques which they can apply to their own teaching practice.

Participants will develop and adapt motivational strategies to better engage their students. They will also learn how to manage classrooms and handle difficult situations in a respectful, professional manner. Participants will use creative techniques and frameworks to help their students learn how to learn and how to think critically and creatively.

The main instructional strategies include interactive lectures, group discussions, collaborative learning projects, role plays, presentations, journal writing and reflective practices.

This course is offered face-to-face on the Tenth Street Campus in Nelson on June 5 to 6. An online component follows June 7 to July 9.
