Facilitation - Precontent

Engaging face-to-face and online teaching practices

Effective facilitation and teaching is more than just the successful transference of knowledge, skill or application around a particular topic. Effective teaching ensures that a surface approach to learning is replaced by deeper, student driven approaches to learning that analyse, develop, create and demonstrate understanding. Students need to initiate learning and maintain engagement during learning in their development as independent lifelong learners. As a tertiary teachers, the facilitation of that learning journey requires a strong teacher presence regardless of delivery mode.

The following web pages include information, approaches and strategies to support you in understanding the facilitation process and its value for learning, and what you can do as a teacher to engage students in learning through facilitation in any delivery mode.
