TEACHING & LEARNING METHODS
NameComments
LecturingLecturing is one of the methods that come first, where the teacher is in the center. It is a method where the teacher actively describes topics and the students are passive listeners. With this method, lesson proceeds in the form of report, description and explanation.
DebateDepending on the situation, debate is a tool that allows all students, or a specific portion of the class to participate in the lesson. In this method, members of the group discuss a topic by addressing the various points of view and discuss alternative opinions about problem-solving.
DemonstrationIn this method the teacher demonstrates, an experiment, test, in front of the class. And then assists students to do so too. Students learn not only by just by looking and watching, but also by taking part and participating. This method is usually applied when teaching skills.
Problem SolvingThe name given to any doubt or ambiguity that arises is, a problem. Problems which usually have a role in human life, that have preventing or annoying aspects are solved by considering the stages of scientific methods. (a) Problems are determined. (b) The problem is identified. 
Cooperative LearningCooperative Learning is; a kind of learning that is based on the students working together for a common purpose. Children with different skills come together in heterogeneous groups to learn by helping each other. Students gain experiences such as becoming aware of the unity
PerformanceIn this method, the teacher performs activities such as experiments and demonstrations in front of the class, students try to learn by looking and watching. This method is usually applied where there are limited facilities and in dealing with dangerous experimental situations.
Concept MapsExpress a relation network, based on figures, graphics and words propositions and principles. It enables visual learning. These steps are followed: 1) Concepts about the subjects to be taught are listed. 2) The name of the subject that will be taught is written at the top.3) Relations between
Scenario-based teaching Although it is similar to the Case Study method, there is a fictional approach in the scenario. The subject can be presented by inserting it in to a fiction and can also lead the student’s to producing their own scenarios.
Simulation Expresses situations where in real life learning is dangerous, difficult to reach and expensive and where students work on models which are very similar to the real thing. For example, before airplane pilots and astronauts embark their aircrafts and spacecrafts, they perform applications
ProjectProject-based learning is a learning way which leads students to deal with interesting problems and to create extraordinary products at the end of this. It allows students to use their creativity and it requires them to look at events perceptively.
Technical TourIs a method that takes learning to the out of the classroom. It is a method that provides students to make direct observations and to gain information by taking them to places, such as factories, museums, libraries, various government agencies, mountains, forests, lakes, parks and gardens.
Observation Although we generally get information related to the nature through observations, the Observation method can also be used for other situations and under other conditions. We try to reach certain generalizations by thinking about our findings which we gather from our observations.
Testing Means reaching results by using various information with certain mechanisms, which are set up to imitate natural events in artificial environments and to have students take a certain topics and applying them to reach certain aims/objectives. Nature researchers, scientists, and educators
InterviewThis is when the teacher brings in (writers, artists, designers, writers, illustrators, etc.) because he/she is not equipped with the adequate facilities to do with certain issues or situations. It is a technique that triggers the senses of students. In some cases, students interview certain people
Teaching with Analogy / MetaphorsIs a way for learning, which compares abstract issues and concepts with concrete objects.
Brainstorming Brainstorming is a group work process that has been regulated to reach solutions for a problem without limitations or evaluation. The purpose of brainstorming is to make it easier for students to express themselves and to generate ideas. This technique is used as a high-level discussion
