Discursive vs Traditional Learning:

During our Department meeting we discussed the differences between a Discursive and Traditional Classroom. The key differences are that learning is not just a transfer of knowledge (traditional) but, that there is differentiation and there is opportunity for students to pursue and explore their own interests.

We further explored this concept of teaching  by writing on whiteboards in pairs and then discussing it as a Department. As a Department we are looking to differentiate learning so that the higher end students are extended and all students are working at their own level .
