Developing and piloting a new online module "Participatory Learning and Teaching"

During the last spring and in the beginning of this semester TAMK School of Vocational Teacher Education has actively been developing a new online module with the theme "Participatory Learning and Teaching". This module is an international and multicultural learning opportunity for pre-service and in-service teachers in different countries.

What is interesting about this module is that it is implemented in international collaboration and also the participants come from different countries. The backgrounds of the participants are heterogeneous wheather you look at their cultural origins or their teaching and working experience as well as their basic educational backgrounds. This gives the teachers and the participants of this course an exellent opportunity not only to learn and discuss about participatory pedagogy but also to find out and learn from the multicultural and diverse group of learners. 

Participatory pedagogy is an extensive pedagogical approach which combines different pedagogical strategies. It enables the use of different types of activating, exploratory, problem and phenomena based pedagogical models and methods. It is not in itself an individual method.

"Participatory Learning and Teaching" module will develop participants' competence in understanding the new kind of learning and teaching by using participatory pedagogy in online environments.  By taking part in this module participants have the ability to study in online environment as part of an international group, participate in discussions and activities by using participatory teaching and learning methods as well as educational technology.

"Participatory Learning and Teaching" module is developed and will be implemented collaboratively with TAMK, Tampere University of Technology (TUT) and Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME) and it is part of an Esf-funded project Disseminating Inclusive Practices. Find out more about this module and the project from Disseminating Inclusive Practices -blog.
