Course description:

What is the course about?

What do the participants learn?

You are going to learn who the contemporary students are and how to manage them during their classroom activities, studying and learning processes. Since times have changed and the learners have changed too, you should know who are the contemporary students and how to meet their needs and attitudes, how to raise their motivation, how to increase their learning performance. You will become a better teacher understanding all generations and dealing with natural diversity with easiness

This course will help you to overcome the outdated “chalk and talk” method of teaching by means of new high impact methodologies like Spaced Learning, Flexible Friday, Project-based learning, Formative assessment, Active learning and new technologies for your students, so they not only recognize their skills, but also apply them.


Main topics:


What are the needs and the attitudes of the contemporary students towards learning:

  • Who are the contemporary students

  • Students’ expectations (what are and how to collect them)

  • Students’ attitudes towards learning approaches and learning objects (what are and how to collect them)

  • Feedbacks (what are and how to collect them)

  • Teaching plans (what are and how to modify them to better meet the students’ expectations)

How to make contemporary students autonomous and motivated in their learning processes in order to empower their learning performance:

  • Self-motivation (how to increase the engagement)

  • Self-directed learning (how to control the outcomes)

  • Metacognitive approach (why they need to know something)

  • Problem solving (solving problems instead of getting new contents)

Innovative teaching-learning methodologies

  • Space learning

  • Flexible Fridays approach

  • Place-based education

  • Formative assessment

  • Active learning and new technologies for it
