Teacher Training - Developing Effective Learners
This training workshop offers some practical strategies that teachers use to develop effective learners. The techniques suggested are tried and tested; they draw on both academic research and the experience of practicing teachers.
Students who are effective learners have the skills to learn on their own. They can be relied on to work independently. They can:
  • Organise and sequence their work.
  • Solve complex problems.
  • Appreciate when they need to seek help or ask questions.
  • Read and gather information and take notes.
  • Share ideas or work in a group.
  • Appreciate the purpose of what they are doing and make connections with other work.
  • Evaluate their work and plan what to do next.
