010053 Active and Collaborative Learning



This subject explores how teachers can enable active and collaborative learning that fosters learner agency. This provides students with choice, opportunities for having an influence in the classroom and to listen and learn from and with others. These are the key building blocks for active and collaborative learning environments. Participants critique their own teaching practices relating to enabling active and collaborative learning and seek feedback from their students and peers. They reflect on this feedback, read, and collectively with peers, debate the pertinent scholarly literature of conceptual ideas of active and collaborative learning, and student agency. Through these reflexive, dialogical approaches participants identify and impact changes to their teaching.
