Teaching orientation is based on four approaches: ensuring the learning environment provides a sense of belongingness; facilitating meaningful learning experiences; ensuring learner participation in activities that utilize critical thinking skills; and reflecting to construct meaning and tie theory to practice. With these approaches, GICaR Inc has engaged various learning styles including structured and unstructured brainstorming, pair work, Q&A sessions, demonstrations, Show & Tell, and group presentations. We have found these styles particularly helpful in seeking new and innovative ways of teaching, as well as engaging learners in order to stimulate a rich marketplace of ideas.
