The basic line of the course is the quote of Edward De Bono; “The quality of our future depends on the quality of our thinking!”
So, what do we really need for deep and effective learning in education and life?
The course focusses on the necessary thinking processes for learning. We provide different frameworks for thinking such as the Bloom’s taxonomy, structured thinking of De Bono, critical thinking, growth mindset, philosophy, meta-learning and other major thinking frames.
We have a close look on what is happening inside the brain of the learner in order to adapt to the teaching and learning initiatives. During the course we learn about insights in different ways of thinking and define the relevance in learning.
We experience different tools for thinking in classroom and teachers room. Valuable tools for building metacognition, self-regulation and critical thinking will be explored and provided as practical teaching material for teachers and school leaders.
The course methodology is based on social constructive learning and consist of teaching moments, interactive discussions, co-creative sessions, reflections to own context and is focused on implementation in the work field of the participants. An open sourced and free to use digital 'knowledge wall' will be constructed during the course by all participants.
