How to maximise learning on field trips 5-day
Students and teachers alike enjoy field trips as they take the learning out of the classroom, bringing the curriculum to life. As well as being fun, field trips must allow for interesting, valuable and safe teaching and learning experiences.
This course will look at aspects of planning, organising and undertaking field trips through whole-class discussion and practical applications.
You will make a pre-trip and learning trip to at least one place of interest in Malta. The pre-trip will allow you to get a feel for the establishment, allowing you to think about making some interesting resources for your students. The second learning trip will give you, and your colleagues, the opportunity to try out and assess your planned learning resources.
