VVOB will be turning 30 years in 2012. To celebrate this occasion VVOB is launching an ATL competition for teachers and lecturers in all VVOB partner countries and Flanders. That way, VVOB will be able to showcase the changes it anticipates for classrooms all over the world.
Active teaching and learning (ATL)
The term active teaching and learning refers to a wide range of student-centred, context relevant and activating approaches which are rooted in a social constructivist and situated cognition view on learning.
Such an approach is expected to improve the quality of education by promoting contemporary knowledge, effective professional skills, creativity, independent and critical thinking skills, problem-solving capability and high adaptability to a continuously changing environment.
