1. Creating Innovative Pedagogies to Enrich Students’ Learning Experiences

The demands for concerted attention to student learning are coming at a time when research and scholarship on learning are rich with findings and implications for practice.  Stunning new research on the brain by neuroscientists is adding a new dimension to our knowledge about learning that reinforces our previously tentative conclusions from cognitive psychology.  Research provides growing evidence that learning is about making connections.  To prepare students for communication in a knowledge society, educators need to reevaluate teaching while understanding learning from multifaceted viewpoints.  This presentation will discuss understanding of learning from neurological, cognitive and social perspectives. The wealth of knowledge garnered from research with what we know about literacy development has the potential to change the way we educate our students.  Learning theory contributes to modern education by unfolding the knowledge about the working of the neural brain, cognitive processes, and the reality of each learner’s social environment.  Therefore, effective teaching is to concentrate on helping students make the connections that constitute learning.  The primary emphasis of the speech is on language teaching and learning.

The session will then analyze an innovative transform of Finnish educational system from mediocre to one of the models of excellence.  The goal is to give impetus to broaden channels of communications with the audience on access to a true education reform.

The effective communicative strategies to be presented will enhance instruction in language education.  The goal is not merely to create a rich learning environment but to empower students and optimize their learning experience.  From pedagogical perspective, it emphasizes the communicative learning process that is proved to be effective in a language classroom in order to help students become competent personally, socially, and methodologically according to today’s needs. In this way learners are given the chance to obtain creativity, independence, self-confidence, and competencies.
