Teaching Strategies

Teaching strategies are the broad techniques and processes that instructors use to impart knowledge in the classroom. Teaching strategies are determined based on the desired course objectives and outcomes. Educators may also choose targeted teaching strategies to better support neurodivergent students, those who are English-language learners and those from varying academic disciplines. Teaching strategies are often chosen based on: a) the level of knowledge the students display, b) the concept being studied and c) the stage in the learning journey of the students.

Teaching strategies refer to innovative methods used to deliver academic content and meet the needs of all students. Examples of teaching strategies include inquiry-based teaching (encourage questioning throughout the problem solving process), team work (divide students into groups and assign different tasks to different students) and project-based teaching (allow students to engage in hands-on activities such as filmmaking or web design to hone specific skills).
