teaching method


  • “[17] It is clear from “the impact of teaching strategies on learning strategies in first-year higher education cannot be overlooked nor over interpreted, due to the importance
    of students’ personality and academic motivation which also partly explain why students learn the way they do”[18] that Donche agrees with the previous points made in the above headings but he also believes that student’s personalities contribute
    to their learning style.

  • [1] For a particular teaching method to be appropriate and efficient it has take into account the learner, the nature of the subject matter, and the type of learning it is
    supposed to bring about.

  • Some examples of collaborative learning tips and strategies for teachers are; to build trust, establish group interactions, keeps in mind the critics, include different types
    of learning, use real-world problems, consider assessment, create a pre-test, and post-test, use different strategies, help students use inquiry and use technology for easier learning.

  • Collaboration establishes a personal connection between students and the topic of study and it helps students think in a less personally biased way.

  • • A study on the impact of different teaching methods on student motivation, comparing motivation levels in classes using different approaches.

  • Examples of its application include studies on the use of technology in the classroom, the influence of different teaching methods on student motivation, and the examination
    of factors affecting student achievement.

  • While this method facilitates large-class communication, the lecturer must make constant and conscious effort to become aware of student problems and engage the students to
    give verbal feedback.

  • Classroom Action Research[edit] Classroom Action Research is a method of finding out what works best in your own classroom so that you can improve student learning.

  • While the lecture method gives the instructor or teacher chances to expose students to unpublished or not readily available material, the students plays a passive role which
    may hinder learning.

  • Students are viewed as “empty vessels” whose primary role is to passively receive information (via lectures and direct instruction) with an end goal of testing and assessment.

  • [16] An effective classroom discussion can be achieved by probing more questions among the students, paraphrasing the information received, using questions to develop critical
    thinking with questions like “Can we take this one step further?

  • [17] Questioning[edit] Questioning is one of the oldest documented teaching methods, and can be used by teachers in a variety of ways for a variety of purposes including,
    checking for understanding, clarifying terms, exposing misconceptions, and gathering evidence of learning to inform subsequent instructional decisions.

  • Cold calling[edit] Cold calling is a teaching methodology based around the teacher asking questions to students without letting the students know beforehand who will be called
    upon to answer by the teacher.

  • [7] Some modes of explaining include the ‘thinking together’ style where teachers connect student ideas to scientific models.

  • [4] In Student-Centered Approach to Learning, while teachers are the authority figure in this model, teachers and students play an equally active role in the learning process.

  • [31] It should aim to (and be capable of producing) improvement in students’ learning, as well as being bidirectional by giving teachers feedback on student performance which
    in turn helps teachers plan the next steps in learning.

  • [4] Methods of teaching Lecturing[edit] Main article: Lecture The lecture method is just one of several teaching methods, though in schools it’s usually considered the primary

  • [15] After some preparation and with clearly defined roles, a discussion may constitute most of a lesson, with the teacher only giving short feedback at the end or in the
    following lesson.

  • It has been the intent of many educators since, such as the Roman educator Quintilian, to find specific, interesting ways to encourage students to use their intelligence and
    to help them to learn.

  • Cold calling aims to increase inclusion in the classroom[24] and active learning as well as student engagement and participation.

  • There are also more narrative styles using examples, and learner explanations which require students to give the explanation of the concept to be learnt allowing the teacher
    to give precise feedback on the quality of the explanation.

  • In his literary work The Republic, Plato described a system of instruction that he felt would lead to an ideal state.

  • One of the advantages of the demonstration method involves the capability to include different formats and instruction materials to make the learning process engaging.

  • To maximize student learning, a teacher must find out what works best in a particular situation.

  • believe that the use of technology, while facilitating learning to some degree, is not a substitute for educational methods that encourage critical thinking and a desire to

  • McKeachie, 1999; Chickering and Gamson, 1987; Weimer, 1996), but every teaching situation is unique in terms of content, level, student skills, and learning styles, teacher
    skills and teaching styles, and many other factors.

  • [2] The approaches for teaching can be broadly classified into teacher-centered and student-centered, although in practice teachers will often adapt instruction by moving
    back and forth between these methodologies depending on learner prior knowledge, learner expertise, and the desired learning objectives.

  • Here, the teacher is well aware of the type of knowledge to be constructed.

  • A teaching method is a set of principles and methods used by teachers to enable student learning.

  • It can be used to arouse interest in a subject provided the instructor has effective writing and speaking skills.

  • [36] This involves very small groups, from one to three students, meeting on a regular basis with tutors (originally college fellows, and now also doctoral students and post-docs)
    to discuss and debate pre-prepared work (either essays or problems).

  • [10] Collaborating[edit] Main article: Collaboration Collaboration allows student to actively participate in the learning process by talking with each other and listening
    to others opinions.

  • Inquiry learning is another modern teaching method.

  • A discussion taking place in a classroom can be either facilitated by a teacher or by a student.

  • These are designed to expose common student misconceptions in understanding the material, and lead to student discussion then reteaching if required.

  • This is why lecturing is the standard for most college courses, when there can be several hundred students in the classroom at once; lecturing lets professors address the
    most people at once, in the most general manner, while still conveying the information that they feel is most important, according to the lesson plan.

  • A popular teaching method that is being used by many teachers is hands on activities.

  • Teachers may employ collaboration to assess student’s abilities to work as a team, leadership skills, or presentation abilities.
