Erasmus Plus training course: 

Creative lesson planning ( Inovative education and creative lesson add-ins)

How to incorporate alternative activities in your lesson planning 

Course overview

Are you wondering how to introduce new activities in the classroom? Are you out of new and exciting ideas but over worksheets? Are you and your learners lacking motivation? Do you know how to effectively incorporate direct methods in class?

Everyone learns in a different way. Traditional ways of teaching based heavily on lecturing has proven inefficient for learners. Through our experience, we have learned that there are different ways educators can help students reach their academic potential.

As a result, this Erasmus Plus training course was designed and created to showcase the different approaches an educator can use within their classrooms, both in person and online. This course will help demonstrate the different ways an educator can effectively promote educational material to learners of all ages. Our trained teachers will show participants with practical exercises how they too can incorporate such components.

With the aim to involve active participation and achieve the best learning experience, the course methodology is based on dynamic, innovative and creative methods of experiential learning.

It consists of:
Theoretical work - If you do not know what you are talking about, you will not be able to apply it. Nowadays, more and more emphasis is put on practical learning, yet theory is a necessity. You have to know the background of a subject to be able to pinpoint its challenges.

Practical work - Through practical workshops and interactive tasks you will gain personal experience that will help you understand and implement ideas in your own work.

Coaching - Each participant in the course will get the opportunity to receive direct feedback from our coaches. These individual consultations will result in being able to better position your skills in your respected organisation
