If you are curious about how curiosity plays an important role in student engagement and progression, this webinar is for you!
Getting and keeping students engaged in learning can be one of the toughest challenges for educators. Curiosity is an innate trait, yet research suggests that as we get older, it diminishes, and in some cases, is actually squelched by the very system designed to teach us. Given the renewed focus on supporting students in Vocational Education, it seems logical that as educators, we refresh ourselves on one of the basic tenets for learning.
Whilst the main audience of this session will be educators from the VET sector, content themes are readily applicable to teachers also.
- Understand the impact of curiosity on learning
- Relate the underpinning theory of curiosity and learning
- Acknowledge the vital importance of curiosity in skilling lifelong learners
- Identify and generate simple strategies to foster student engagement and progression
