21st Century Teaching & Learning

The aim of this course is to equip in-service teachers with the requisite knowledge, skills and competence to support the development of an innovative learning culture within schools, that is team-based, technology mediated, project-focused and cross curricular. The course modules aim to enhance the expertise of participant teachers in new models of teaching and learning with particular emphasis on Science Technology Engineering Maths/Computer Science. They also aim to address complex challenges related to developing an inclusive educational environment and preparing all school students for higher academic aspiration and progression, through a focus on whole school culture, leadership and change. It is intended that participant teachers will learn how to develop and lead a 'cultural change process' within the classroom and the wider school community.
