Placing students at the centre of their learning

Teachers typically receive guidance on what to teach but are often left on their own to figure out how to teach it.

Sound instructional strategies are at the root of a student-centred learning environment.

Teachers and schools across Ireland are using Formative Instructional Practices to:

  • Implement more rigorous academic standards
  • Engage students in their learning
  • Build teachers’ capacity to serve as instructional leaders
  • Prepare teachers to reach diverse learners
  • Create personalised pathways for college and career readiness
