“Staff are engaging with the concept of teaching and learning and sharing methods to enable them to think out the box. The concept of being able to extend ourselves and be constantly up skilled by our academic head and assistant head. Encouraged to share and enjoy in developing ways to improve the experience for the learners is what makes us special.” – CEO, Shana Rosenthal
LISOF lecturers participated in an academic conference during the first week of the June Holiday with the main objective fixated on Teaching and Learning practices that promote student engagement. Lecturers were grouped into teams and developed creative and engaging alternative approaches to lesson presentations and methods of delivery to advance student experiences within a learning environment.
The academic faculty engaged with concepts surrounding teaching millennials, valuable learning experiences, authentic assessment practices and lecture room management. It was an exciting and interactive day driven by the enthusiastic spirit of the LISOF academic faculty that reminded us of the caliber of lecturers at the heart of LISOF. The willingness to challenge themselves within the academic context further demonstrated that an even greater quality and experiential education is on the horizon.
