Linking Theory and Practice for Effective Student-centred Teaching
Half-day workshop | $165 + GST
About the workshop
Formerly known as Teaching tips 2: Key Principles that inform adult learning. This interactive half day workshop will assist practitioners in linking teaching and learning theory to their practice; introducing key theories and current understandings about adult learning.
The workshop will be a valuable addition to staff professional development and will prove particularly useful during induction of new staff, or as a ‘next stage’ for those who have attended our popular Teaching tips and strategies for new tertiary educators workshop.
Linking Theory and Practice for Effective Student-centred Teaching has been developed from the Ako Aotearoa-funded project Goalposts by Judith Honeyfield and Cath Fraser from Bay of Plenty Polytechnic.
Facilitators Judith and Cath will assist participants to achieve the following:
- Gain an overview of some of the key principles and theories about adult learning to expand understanding and practice.
- Apply relevant theories to their particular context to create interesting and engaging teaching delivery.
Judith and Cath are also the leaders of the team that developed the PD resource Signposts - explored in our Teaching tips and strategies workshop.
This event can be run in conjunction with Developing practices for new tertiary teachers as a full day event. Please contact your regioanal Hub for further information.
These workshops are part of Ako Aotearoa’s Professional Development Programme – an initiative to bring high quality, evidence-based and affordable professional development to educators and managers across New Zealand’s diverse tertiary education sector.
