Course objectives and programmatic details:
Didactic Games for Busy Teachers
The course introduces variety of practical didactic games that can be realised in the class with minimal effort and time of preparation.All the games involve students actively in the lesson, maintain their attention and evoke their motivation.
Team and pair games make students learn how to debate, lead to better argumentation, negotiation and improve understanding others in general. Being able to communicate, play active role as a team member and cooperate with others are extremely important skills for your students.
Time limited games develop understanding the importance of time management and increase ability to work under pressure.
Many of the games work also with principles of TPR (games based on total physical response) that connect new knowledge with body movement and intensifies level of understanding. They are also very useful for practising and revision of earlier introduced knowledge.
These simple activities can be used even in formal based lessons and make them more vivid and appealing. As a part of NFE (non-formal education) didactic games offer effective educational alternative to traditional teaching methods and approaches.
