Participative Teaching Methods for Sustainable Development
Participative teaching methods are didactic methods, strategies and techniques that are focused on encouraging students to become actively involved in their learning process. They also aim to raise students’ awareness and sense of responsibility about the organization, management and evaluation of their educational experience.
Participative teaching includes a set of didactic strategies and techniques that aim to promote a more active role of students in the learning process. This implies not only to engage students’ interest in theoretical lessons, encouraging group discussions and critical reflections, but also to involve them in more practical activities, to connect academic achievement with real-life issues and to understand the impact of the individual actions on the community.
