Developing the following skills:
Design, propose and manage activities in the classroom that promote students’ autonomous learning.
Include activities and strategies in the planning that awaken students’ interest in the new learning content.
Plan situations and activities, in the learning process, relating to the learning that contribute to reinforcing self-esteem and the creation of a positive self-concept among the students.
The information society, the globalised world and a dramatic increase in the production and availability of information, which already doubles every three or four years, leads us to believe that, as well the basic and essential knowledge of each culture, it is essential to highlight education in self-learning mechanisms and strategies, which guarantee that our students can continue learning throughout their lives, as knowledge is no longer stable and permanent.
The education of individuals who master the ability to learn to learn requires a teaching practice that develops each student as a critical, reflective, autonomous and enterprising person, requiring them to develop and strengthen their natural qualities, aptitudes and abilities, to educate individuals with a self-esteem and self-concept adapted to their personal characteristics, all of which so they know how to set themselves attainable goals.
Likewise, it is vitally important that the teaching practice develops in students those effective thinking and mental processes that enables them to develop autonomous learning throughout their schooling, which guarantees gradual positive development as a person, a citizen and future professional. For this it will be necessary to plan, schedule, and carry out activities and create spaces for the acquisition of the necessary metacognitive skills and motivation in students for reflective learning.
Through the Autonomous Learning Challenge you will learn to:
- Create suitable conditions so your students can learn to learn
- Determine the necessary incentives for them to achieve your proposed objectives
- Awaken their interest, motivation and curiosity to achieve new learning
- Give daily class activities a collective sense.
Through a personalised self-analysis, we will analyse and propose the course that best suits you, to first work on the skills you need most to develop your teaching competencies following your chosen Challenge.
We will propose:
- Practical case studies and different scenarios of educational practice
- Theory relating to the theme
- Proposal for application in your classroom or work environment
- Indications, suggestions and examples to implement real practice, gather evidence and share it with other colleagues.
TeachersPro is designed to develop teaching skills and competencies through interaction with other peers, expanding professional criteria through effective studying and sharing of practical situations in diverse contexts.
Our great commitment is that you can share your acquired knowledge and learning with the TeachersPro community comprising colleagues from different parts of the world, that you see yourself as a potential tutor for other teachers, and other participants as potential tutors for your own training.
You can ask for help through the TeachersPro community, as well as sharing your ideas and evidence of your practice, creating an exchange of knowledge that benefits everyone.
If needed, you can always turn to our team of expert tutors to give you constructive and rigorous feedback on your own evidence. You can sign up for this service on the Platform whenever you need it.
You will also have the chance to review the portfolios of other teachers with whom you share common interests and share evidence of your work on the TeachersPro Platform.
TeachersPro certifies the knowledge you acquire through a badge system. If you wish, at the end of each Learning Challenge you can obtain a professional teaching certificate for the competency you have completed through a specific tutor, and recognition from Finland University (the most important consortium of public universities in Finland).
