New Trends in Teaching and Learning

Dr. Fida Mohammad, GIKI

Talk to be delivered on April 06, 2018 at AWKUM University

Over the past forty years or so Psychologists, Sociologists, Anthropologists,

Evolutionary Biologists, Linguists, Educationists, Neuroscientists, Philosophers, and Learning theorists have studied the process of human learning.

They identified two main problems:

Retention of what students learn and engaging students in what teachers teach

1.     They recommend new teaching strategies to teachers which focus on how to in engage in  the materials being taught i.e students pay attention to whatever they learn (distraction are suppressed)

2.     They suggest learning strategies to learners which are more efficient in learning i.e students don’t forget easily what they learn i.e they retain their learning for a longer time

3.     In my talk I will discuss the newer more effective strategies of teaching which teachers can use to engage learners and enhance learning. Moreover, effective ways of learning will also be discussed which are evidence-based and which experts have found to help in the retention of learning.
