Golden ratio teaching: Interactive approaches and positive attitude for improving teaching and training skills
GRT is an Erasmus+ KA2 Strategic partnership in the field of school education
Project start and end dates – 01.11.2020 – 30.04.2022 (duration 18 months).
Project number – 2020-1-BG01-KA201-079006.
Golden Ratio Teaching in short, aims at providing teachers with a toolbox and a number of tested approaches and methods for addressing the individual talent and learning style of students, to easily attract attention and combat some insecurities teachers face in their everyday work. Gradually, a shift from teacher-centered to student-centered classroom will be reached which would help teachers perform better, with less stress and to apply a new organization of the process and premises in such a way that the natural curiosity of the students is enhanced.
The project objectives are:
– to support teachers in achieving better results via improved skills for combining approaches that provide a balanced package of information/knowledge/skills to students of various learning types
– to replace conformity in routine teaching/learning, which usually causes lack of interest and attention for the students and a sense of helplessness and lack of purpose among the teachers
– to support the attainment of key competence knowledge and the fostering of creativity by students in Europe by introducing an ideology of teaching that appeals to and is useful for all types of learners and thus lower the number of early school leavers due to bad results and lack of motivation
The GRT is expected to have a number of positive long-term impacts on all involved in its preparation and implementation. This will ultimately result in a competence enhancement for teachers, enabling them to be successful and more efficient. Additionally, the students will be enabled to enjoy their classes more and stay focused for longer periods of time. In addition to that, a desired impact is that due to the new methods, their overall performance at school will also improve. Students with learning difficulties will obtain better targeted content from their teachers and will have a positive impact on their inclusion and results.
The participating organisations will add the GRT to their portfolios, thus expanding their experience in the sphere, and opening them to new activities. They will further get exposure to experts, new teams and networks.
All involved experts will be enabled to share their experience and know-how with a large international audience, thus collaborating on a new level, receiving useful feedback for the development of their methods and expanding their target audience. The external stakeholders will be enabled to use the provided materials and integrate them into their own practices, thus improving on the existing methods.
