KOULU’s Teach like a Finn! training programme continued in Pakistan in collaboration with Ms. Maarit Rossi, CEO of Paths to Math and finalist in Global Teacher Prize 2016, and Train2Impact. Six participants from Silver Oaks Schools & College were trained as TLF Math trainers. The three-day training included active learning and problem solving in math.
According to the participants, positivity and creativity in teaching and learning, and giving confidence through student-centeredness and hands-on activities were the definite stars of the training: especially the activity with making cubes from ropes was highly appreciated.
The next training cohorts with Silver Oaks trainers will continue in April with problem-based and phenomenon-based learning.
Teach like a Finn! (TLF) is a scalable professional development model. The aim of the programme is to provide not only the theoretical knowledge of student-centred and inquiry-based learning, on which the training is based on, but above all the support and resources teachers need to put these theories in practice. The entire programme consists of eight different modules.
