Amcanion cyffredinol

This module will focus on evidence-based approaches to education.

Following a general introduction to the methods of effective education, students will be introduced to how these instructional methods are used to teach children, and how they can be implemented within our current educational system.

In practical sessions, students will learn how to analyse curriculum problems and design and monitor an educational plan supported by evidenced based approaches.

Seminars will also be used to explore some core principles of these instructional methods in more depth.

Cynnwys cwrs

Students will gain an insight into these important topics.

Specific topics covered will include the principles of effective instruction; the desired outcomes of learning; how to implement Precision Teaching and Direct Instruction (specifically as applied to teaching reading [beginning and remedial]) within educational settings; the vital role that research plays in effective education; and the barriers that exist to the implementation of effective evidence-based approaches within our educational system. Students will also be introduced to the different levels of measurement (Macro, Meta, & Micro), and how they can be used to support an effective Response to Intervention (RtI) model.
