Ever wondered why it can be challenging to engage adolescent learners? Contemporary research shows that changes in the human brain during adolescent growth affect the child and its optimal development depends strongly on the provision of a suitably innovative and engaging learning environment. With the latest studies also revealing how positive teaching and learning will lead to increased student involvement, most importantly, it can also result in greater Year 12 completion rates.
This course has been designed to show teachers how to increase the amount of meaningful learning taking place in their classroom through building effective teaching practice. The workshop is led by expert educators at UTS. Drawing on the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) research conducted by CAST (the Centre for Applied Special Technology), it demonstrates how to ensure access to the curriculum for all learners while maintaining high academic standards.
