Instructional Strategies and Pedagogical Practices

Teachers can build on the ways learners learn from each other creating a learning environment where there are ample opportunities for interaction, reflection and collaboration. How can teacher create rich and stimulating environments for learning leading to engaged and effective classrooms and also improved academic achievement of the students? Individual differences in learning needs, levels and styles, different structures of disciplines, different learning situations lend complexity to classroom situations. For a teacher to be able to manage these variables effectively requires an understanding of not only what they are teaching but also why they are teaching, how they create and organize learning experiences and when students are ready for learning 

It is not what expert teachers do, but rather the ways in which they decide what to do that makes the difference in instructional effectiveness. The evolution of pedagogical intelligence takes time. It is not something that emerges automatically. Rather, it develops through the process of confronting instructional dilemmas and necessitates an  understanding of the classroom milieu.
