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.
This 5-day programme involves both classroom contact time and four field trip experiences, three of which will take place in the locality of Saint Paul’s Bay, the home of Alpha School of English. The fourth is a full-day offsite cultural trip to a popular destination. The course offers participants a hands-on experience where they will be given the opportunity to:
- Collaborate with peers of different nationalities and cultural backgrounds
- Take part in four practical off-site field trip activities
- Increase their awareness of health and safety issues
- Demonstrate their organisational and resourcing skills
- Improve their communication skills, vital for the delivery of CLIL
THE BROAD TOPICS COVERED IN THIS COURSE INCLUDE:
