Student-centred teaching with the Extreme Apprenticeship method

Drs. Johanna Rämö and Jokke Häsä from the University of Helsinki will present

Abstract: Extreme Apprenticeship is a novel student-centred teaching method for large classes with hundreds of students. Its theoretical background is in situated view on learning and Cognitive Apprenticeship. In XA, students participate in activities that resemble those of professional mathematicians. The key elements are instructional scaffolding and continuous bi-directional feedback. Students are guided in their work by undergraduate/graduate TAs. In our talk, we introduce the XA method, and tell how the professional development of TAs has been organised.
