Topic outline

  • Here are the slides and the instructions for the next assignment.

    • The aim of the learning logs is to focus and follow your learning and become aware of your thought processes. Learning log is a reflective writing concerning the topics presented in the contact sessions. It is unique record of your thinking and learning during the course. The learning log has to be completed within a week after the contact session. The length of the reflection is around 0,5-1 page. Please submit your learning log here. The logs are visible only for the teachers.

      In the learning log you can consider:

      What did you think after the teaching session?

      What supported your learning in the class?

      What kind of thoughts and ideas arouse to you concerning the themes presented?

      How can you apply these ideas to your own teaching?

      Where would you like to focus in the future? etc.
