Overview

The course is based on the constructivist learning principle, which allows for active and interactive participation, as a result of which participants will be able to integrate new knowledge, understanding and skills into their existing repertoire.

Today’s educators are on a compelling quest to find ways to hold higher expectations for pupils, improve teaching and learning pedagogies, and increase pupil learning and achievement outcomes. Much is being made known of the value of professional learning communities (PLCs) in education.

The notion of the ‘learning organisation’ or the ‘learning community’ has become a buzzword in a number of countries. Various documents and publications go a long way to support the argument that the way in which an organisation learns is a key index to its effectiveness and potential to innovation and growth.

This course will lead the learners to,

  1. Develop a clearer understanding behind motivation in work practices.
  2. Develop a repertoire of ways of nurturing and empowering teachers to work collectively and collaboratively.
  3. Explore the various components necessary to turn schools into communities of learning.
  4. Address specific questions, namely: how to clarify and communicate the purpose, vision and values of our College/school? How to initiate, implement and sustain a change process? How to shape the organisational culture and provide structures that support the culture we seek? How to create collaborative processes that result in both individual and organisational learning? How to foster an environment that is results oriented yet encourages experimentation?
  5. Have the opportunity of exchanging information, ideas, experiences and networking during the seminar.
