Traditional teaching environments – all of us sitting in lecture theatres, facing forward in silence, listening to the ‘expert’. What have we learned in these environments?
What Educators Think: We have gathered a vast knowledge and understanding of the topic. We are prepared for the upcoming exam.
The Reality: We have updated our facebook statuses. Our doodles have become more advanced. We have learned to sleep subtly.
This module has demonstrated the success of modernized learning environments. I have learned more across the last semester than I ever have in any other module. I am driven to learn. I am excited to read my peers’ ideas.
I have been inspired and excited by this educational module and only hope that we begin to see more flexible and student-driven programmes in the future!
