This assignment will assist you to position yourself as a teacher facilitator of active learning by discussing the following:Â Â Â One of the roles of a teacher is to facilitate (to
enable) learning by guiding the student.
We talk about active learning to highlight that learning is something done by the student. A student who seeks his/her own answers is an active learner. A student who expects the teacher to produce the answers is passive.
This assignment about 2,500 words and criteria as well as the points include in this table below need to be address to achieve the required high mark.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: IN THIS ASSIGNMENT ACADEMIC ARTICLES REQUIRED, AS A COLLABORATIVE I WILL SEND SOME ARTICLES FOR YOU AND YOU NEED TO SEE SOME OF THEM, ALSO YOU CAN COMBINED WHAT I SEND TO YOU ANDÂ WHAT YOU HAVE, thats fine.
?Â Â Â Describe active learning and justify this approach to your teaching setting and learner cohort.
? more instruction Â Â Â You can convert this into two questions:
¢Â Â Â What is active learning?
¢Â Â Â Why is active learning suitable for my group and my teaching setting (think about the group of learners you will be teaching and the setting eg clinical or classroom).
?Â Â Â Discuss the theories of learning and teaching that best inform an active learning approach to teaching.Â Â Â To discuss means to look at an issue from more
than one perspective. It involves description (summary) and critique.
So here you need to do two things or answer two questions.
¢Â Â Â What are the learning and teaching theories that support the idea of active learning for adults? (this is the summary or description part)
¢Â Â Â What are the strengths and limitations of these theories? What is said about these theories by different authors? (this is the critique part).
Using humanistic and cognativism and behaviorism n my learning approach.
?Â Â Â Discuss considerations that must be taken into account in order to achieve active learning engagement when planning teaching sessions in clinical or classroom environment (nurses).Â Â Â Imagine you are the nurse working
side-by-side with a student or that you are a clinical educator. Think about the different environments in which the student will be working (as a student in practice or after graduation), eg. as a nurse in a hospital ward (clinical) or as a nurse or nursing student learning in a classroom. The students attention and way of learning will be different in each of these settings. This question is asking how you would do to engage the student in active learning in each of these settings, begin so different and offering so many different things to the student.

Marking guide line and criteria..
?Â Â Â Undertake a literature search to determine what education experts in health care practice advocate to achieve excellence in teaching and learningÂ Â Â Your unit guide has references to some
