Center for Research on Learning

A learning strategy is a person's approach to learning and using information. Students who do not know or use good learning strategies often learn passively and ultimately fail in school. Learning strategy instruction focuses on making the students more active learners by teaching them how to learn and how to use what they have learned to solve problems and be successful. The Learning Strategies Curriculum has the necessary breadth and depth to provide a well-designed scope and sequence of strategy instruction. One strand addresses how students acquire information. A second strand helps students study information once they acquire it. A third strand helps students express themselves.

No single strategy is a panacea. Click here to see the Learning Strategies brochure. Learn more! Strategies for reading Strategies for studying & remembering information. Variation Theory. Learning Study | Variation Theory | Universitas 21 Fellowship | Variation Theory Conference Variation Theory was initially develop by Professor Ference Marton and is a theory of learning.

Variation Theory

It is used to frame Learning Studies. When using Variation Theory a teacher will identify the aspects of the lesson content that is critical for students’ understanding. The teacher can then use patterns of variation in these critical aspects to help students to discern differences and therefore learn. A basic conjecture of Variation Theory is that learning takes places when there is difference against a background of sameness.

After only a cursory glance online at initial teacher training courses, one recurring selling point immediately stands out: “Learn by doing!”

As one website succinctly put it, [Because] CELTA training is based on experiential learning, or “learning by doing”, teaching practice (TP) is at the heart of the course.[1] And who am I to argue? As a CELTA trainer myself, I have witnessed firsthand the value of teaching practice and reflection. Lately however, I have been pondering the experiential learning of the trainees, not when they are actually teaching, but when they are receiving input sessions from the trainers. So ingrained in ELT is the value of experiential learning that, as trainers, we are constantly demonstrating activities, employing ELT classroom management strategies, and in general getting our trainees to ‘be the students’. Balance – When is ELT modelling most useful?

Right off the bat I suspect. The trainees – Who benefits most from explicit ELT modelling? Loop input ‘Anti-demos’ International Journal for Lesson and Learning Studies information. The first journal of its kind, The International Journal for Lesson and Learning Studies publishes lesson and learning studies that are pedagogically aimed at improving the quality of teaching and learning in formal educational settings.

International Journal for Lesson and Learning Studies information

These studies may take the form of action research, design experiments, formative evaluations or pedagogical research more generally that is designed to foster a democratic, discursive and action orientated inquiry process. The editorial objective of the journal is to promote interdisciplinary and cross-national collaboration between groups of teacher educators, educational researchers and schoolteachers.

The International Journal for Lesson and Learning Studies (IJLLS) is the official journal of the World Association of Lesson Studies (WALS). Read an interview with the editors, Professors John Elliott and Lo Mun Ling at.
