“Cooperative learning: teaching that is as easy as 1-2-3-4″

Date and Time: 
Saturday, 18 January 2014 - 1:00pm - 4:45pm
Speaker: 
Joël Laurier

Current reforms in the educational landscape are pushing toward a more student-centered approach to education. The talk is now of learning more than teaching. Cooperative Learning (CL) is a research based teaching pedagogy that provides an effective teaching approach, especially in language learning. Through interactive, task based activities, students learn to take control of their own learning.
