The Innovative Teaching and Learning Methods course is all about practical learning to upgrade your teaching game: to experience in practice how innovative teaching and learning can be integrated into daily school life. The course combines theory with practical exercises as well as field visits. During the seven-day course, you will experiment with design thinkingphenomenon-based learning and playful learning in a participatory learning environment. You will work on your own, in pairs, and in teams. We will visit a Finnish school to see students in action, and for example Design Factory and Fazer Experience exhibition to see how innovative pedagogy is implemented in different ways. Active participation is essential to immerse yourself in Finnish education and culture, as well as deepen your practices in multidisciplinary teaching/ learning methods.
