Teaching Learning Methods (TLM)

Recent developments in student learning have been primarily based on a constructivist philosophy, whereby effective learners are considered the determinants of what is learnt. From this ‘learner centered view, the teacher’s role is that of facilitator of learning and prior ability and knowledge of the learner determines the learner’s approach to a learning task. This shows that the focus of educational practice has been moving decisively away from content delivery and the role of the teacher has evolved from imparter of information to the facilitator of learning. In this program, the participants are helped to explore learning principles and theories of successful adult learning from a learner’s perspective. The TLM module seeks to update the faculty members with current teaching and learning principles. The principles offer insights into educational processes for teachers and professors in informal and formal systems of education.
