FOR THE TEACHER
This learning path aims at pinpointing chracteristics and peculiarities of different learning styles. Learning preferences, cognitive styles and affective aspects will be considered a) in general terms and b) in the context of foreign and second language education. For this reason, suggestions for the teachers and exercises will aim at improving the teacher-student relationship in the light of the foreign language education.
This learning path aims at:
- Helping the teachers become more conscious of studentsí different approaches to learning.
- Helping the teachers distinguish and recognize the studentsí learning strategies and learning styles.
- Inviting them to be conscious of their own preferred teaching modalities.
- Helping the teacher improve understanding of how his/her teaching style affects the student-teacher relationship (by giving him/her opportunities to reflect on how a wide range of different activities could better suit the studentsí different styles).
This learning path has been devised for all the teachers who want to improve the student-teacher relationship in their specific learning context. Activities and suggestions, in particular, have been conceived for foreign language teachers.
Approximately, it will keep teachers three/four hours to go through this learning path.
