TEACHING METHODS AND APPROACHES

 

A key feature of Transition Year should be the use of a wide range of teaching/learning methodologies and situations. The goals and objectives of the programme can best be achieved by placing particular emphasis on:

  • negotiated learning;
  • personal responsibility in learning;
  • activity-based learning;
  • integration of appropriate areas of learning;
  • team teaching approaches;
  • group work: discussion, debate, interview, role play;
  • project work and research;
  • visiting speakers and seminars;
  • study visits and field trips;
  • work experience, work simulation, community service.
