ICT 0407 - Talk in our Classroom

Duration: 7 hrs

This course promotes a new culture of teacher and student talk in the classroom that goes beyond the IRE/F (Initiation-Response-Evaluation/Feedback) interaction mode. This workshop promotes dialogic teaching which has the potential to engage learners, stimulate and extend their thinking, and advance their learning and understanding across subjects.This module aims to prepare teachers for handling the C2015 policies of maximising students' learning outcomes, in particular, Self-directed Learning (SDL) and SEL (Social-Emotional Learning) competencies. Dialogic talk may also be used as a powerful tool for scaffolding formative assessment events in the classroom and will help participants in their understanding of talk, questioning strategies and formative assessment.
