When it comes to setting rules in the classroom, in some ways an old saying ‘hope for the best, but prepare for the worst’ rings true. Classroom management is extremely important for maintaining order and encouraging the best behaviour from your students. It’s how students learn classroom etiquette, their responsibilities, and your expectations from them. Effective classroom management procedures promote independent learning and success for all students in classrooms that are productive, orderly, and pleasant. Our 5-day teacher training course is designed for teachers who want to deepen their knowledge on how to effectively manage a classroom.
In our 5-day teacher training course, we will introduce different instructional methods and approaches that aims to increase students’ engagement in classroom activities. Participants will learn about flipped classroom model, project based learning and how to encourage students to become active participants of classroom activities. In this interactive course, participants are expected to actively participate to the training activities and group discussions. During the training sessions, participants will develop a group project based on what they have learned throughout the week and will present their work.
