EEL106 Creating Learning Experiences (8)


In this subject students will develop knowledge and understanding of how to create learning experiences to meet children’s learning needs and curriculum requirements using research based pedagogical approaches and strategies which are contextually appropriate. They will explore different pedagogical approaches and identify how these partially explain learning within diverse formal and informal learning contexts. Students will participate in learning experiences that will model a range of research based pedagogical strategies. Students will design, implement and evaluate three sequences of learning experiences for an identified group of learners. Each sequence will reflect a different approach and include strategies appropriate for the approach and context.
