Overview

Despite all the changes in teaching and learning over the last 30 years, there has been one constant for both the teacher and learner, and that is the importance of working in a safe and accountable learning environment.

We’ll look at how to engage our learners through collaborative learning, instructional skills and design, as well as looking at the role technology is playing in terms of promoting engaged learning environments. We’ll explore the importance of creating a safe and accountable learning environment; observe an experienced teacher who works with instructional skills and tactics to promote safe and accountable learning environments.

What will I learn?
  • How to define and create a safe and accountable learning environment
  • Examine the working factors of teaching
  • Identify instructional skills & tactics that promote a safe and accountable learning environment
  • Identify elements of instructional design
  • Reflect on the role technology is playing in the learning environment
  • Demonstrate reflective practice as a teacher or facilitator, and a learner

This course requires approximately 2 - 4 hours of study per week, but can vary depending on the student. This includes watching videos, and taking quizzes and assessments.

If you pass this course you'll receive a Certificate of Achievement. While this certificate isn't a formal qualification or credit, you can use it to demonstrate your interest in learning about this area to potential employers or educational institutions.

Nice, short, course on the topic. Follows the open2study format which at times seems constraining. Discussions are quite dependent on who else is in the course. Actually out somethings to practice from the course

The content of this course is very practical. The presentation is lively and interesting. The quick multiple choice question at the end of each short video helps to focus learning and enhance memory. The content taught can be applied easily.

I teach adults every day, but yet I learned so much from the instructors. This was an excellent course. I would highly recommend it and any other courses from Australia's Open 2 Study.

Excellent course. Teaches how to teach adults learners. Great techniques implemented in the delivery of course. I greatly recommend this course to be taken by everyone who will be teaching adult learners and how to actually deal with the learning process when imparting knowledge to adult learners.
