This course introduces you to important theories about learning, and to conditions which may help or constrain achievement in the students’ learning.
One focus of the course is to help you develop strong relationships with families to enable them to support children’s learning. Positive relationships with your students enable you not only to teach them but also to get to know them as individuals. Positive relationships with colleagues and school leaders are necessary to help the school improve.
This course will emphasise what you can do to act professionally. This includes developing your own philosophy of teaching and making sure that you continue to improve your knowledge and skills. It also considers what it means to be part of a community of professionals, working with others to improve what happens in your school, community and profession.
You will consider various techniques which help to assess student learning. The course also will help you to acquire the skills to develop and use appropriate assessment procedures.
In this course we will consider features of effective student management and how they support a safe, positive and orderly environment. We will also explore strategies for communicating with students, colleagues, parents and others. You will be encouraged to reflect on and improve your current practices in planning for teaching and learning.
This introductory course explains how the seven other courses in the program will assist you to improve your understanding of your role and work as a teacher. This set of courses will enhance your knowledge and understanding about learning and teaching and what makes a teacher a professional.

The aim of this project is to have a positive impact on the development of students' problem-solving competencies by promoting the use of inquiry and problem-based approaches to teaching. To achieve this, a training framework will be developped for training teachers how to create science lesson plans by not just providing examplar solutions to problems that arise from everyday practice, but also enabling them to perceive effective lesson planning in relation to educational principles that may enhance students' problem-solving skills.
Following the recommendations of the Rocard report on science education in Europe, the use of problem-based and inquiry-based approaches is important because they provide the means to increase students' interest and motivation.
LD-Skills is a pilot project that is funded by the European Comission's Comenius Multilateral project programme. It has started in January 2011 and is expected to run for 2 years.
