What are students expecting from innovative pedagogies?
Students views on innovative teaching was assessed through a short online survey in 2019. Results of this survey are here.
You will see there that many advantages found for innovative pedagogies: mainly
“It improves student’s engagement”
“It improves student’s self-discovery”
“It improves imagination and creativity”
“It improves transfer of understanding”
“It improves relevance to real life”
But students are less convinced that “it improves know-how and craftmanship”.
Students who experienced innovative pedagogies believe that their learning success was higher. They would prefer the proportion of innovative pedagogies to be increased.
But the quality of those pedagogies mostly depends on teachers who are providing them.
