About this Course

Can you imagine a classroom where your students take charge of their own learning and look forward to coming to school every day? Are you wondering how to fire up your students’ enthusiasm for difficult concepts?

Is this online teaching course for you?

If you are a school teacher hoping to enrich your pedagogical skills and looking to improve your students’ learning outcomes, this teaching course is perfect for you. This course revolves around the 5E Instructional Model.

The framework divides the teaching of a learning objective into 5 phases: Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate, and Evaluate. While each learning objective does not lend itself to all 5 phases, the framework is flexible enough to work with the teaching of any topic in any subject.

This is a structured approach to student-centred learning and provides a way for teachers to explore and enhance their teaching skills as well.

This is one of the best online primary teaching courses that is equally relevant for teaching senior grades.

Reviews

The course was very effective and helped me understand how to teach more effectively. I learnt how to engage students (grab interest), how to (help them) explore things – many times we share what a forest is but going to the place through a nature walk – living and non-living – makes it really helpful for a student to learn.

Rukia

Beaconhouse School System

Found it (the course) helpful – as (compared to) using direct teaching before. Now I have a more interactive way and can adapt the 5E method in the classroom. It helps make English interesting for students as well rather than just tell students the grammar rules.

Bushra Yasmin

Islamabad Model College For Girls

The course was effective and helped me apply the 5E model in the classroom

Naina Gul

Beaconhouse Banigalla Campus.

Done a course from Oxford like this on communication skills. Found this course more effective as the other course was lecture-based while this one had much more interactivity like games, which were a really engaging part of the course. I also really enjoyed the case studies and scenario-based questions, which helped me learn from mistakes.

Before this course, I did not have any direction but now I know where to start my teaching

The 5E Model is a learning framework designed to engage students in an active learning process. It breaks lessons down into 5 steps: engage, explore, explain, elaborate, and evaluate. This method uses tested pedagogical skills to elicit engagement and a desire to learn among students.
Using the 5E model in your classroom will give you the tools you need to vary your teaching strategies and will result in better outcomes for your students.
You should take this course if you want to experiment with student-centred teaching approaches, want to create an environment of collaborative and active learning in your classroom, and want to ensure that students are really internalising the concepts you are teaching.
You will have to watch all the videos, read the PDFs, and play all the games to complete the course.
Just as the 5E Model teaches you to engage your students in class, we want to engage you in this course. The games are designed to test and reinforce key concepts taught in each module. They are a fun way to see how much you’ve absorbed.
