Series 1: Structuring Teaching-Learning Experiences using Content Structure

Developing lectures or e-learn lessons normally involve modelling your professors or guided by the main reference book. You are rest assured of having done your part as long as having presented the content in its entirety. However, despite your best effort for complete content coverage, your students are still struggling and are attested by their unsatisfactory formative performances. Perhaps at times, a voice did surface from your deepest core: what else can you do to ease and facilitate their learning? How should you teach and how should they learn to make the teaching-learning (T&L) experiences more effective or ambitiously - more efficient? Is there any simple guiding principle? Yes, there is – this one-day workshop will start you off using the content structure of your course sub-topics as a guide in structuring your T&L experiences. You are encouraged to share the content structure with your students so that they too have the guide on how to learn.
