Nina's Notes

for Effective Teaching and Meaningful Learning

How to improve learning?

Effective teaching and meaningful learning are two concepts that walk hand-in-hand. Nina's Notes are dedicated to describe and discuss the dualistic nature of teaching and learning, and how to make choosing effectiveness available for all teachers and students.

The first presentation Improve learning and teaching - Finnish it? suggests adopting global competencies and Finnish pedagogy that are helpful in preparing our students to their future lives. 


The transcript for Finnish it? can be found by clicking here.

The three following presentations Focused and Effective Feedback, Meaningful Learning and Reflective Teaching all have the same point of view: using 3Cs - Cognitive and Cooperative practices in Constructive way to improve both teaching and learning experiences. And they all also have a Finnish twist, obviously! :)
