About this module
Understand how to utilise learners as a resource for teaching and learning in low-resource contexts. Take this module and see how creativity, personalisation and learner-generated resources can contribute to rich and meaningful learning.
Teaching with minimal resources is a three-hour self-study training module, which is divided into three one-hour units.
- By the end of unit 1, you'll be able to identify the resources available in the classroom.
- By the end of unit 2, you'll be able to use a variety of activities when teaching with limited resources and adapt an activity for a particular teaching context
- By the end of unit 3, you'll be able to analyse the advantages and disadvantages of different activities and be more resourceful when faced with a low-resource context
Start date: 3 August 2020
Duration: Three hours self-study (available for four weeks between 3rd and 28th August 2020)
