Teaching- Finding Creative Inspiration
Teachers create the mood and tone of the room. Positive classroom cultures that invite authentic learning can lead to more opportunities for students to positively connect with content, their peers, and their teacher.
The ability for students to connect, grow and innovate not only with class content, but also with each other, the world around them and with the teacher who teaches.
To create an innovative, open, creative and trustworthy place for students to grow, take risks, and feel comfortable in their own patterns of learning, there are a few key actions teachers can take to create a more innovative and entrepreneurial classroom.
Inclusive Teaching Learning
Inclusive Teaching Learning enables staff to build confidence to adopt different approaches to build inclusive and accessible learning environments.
The whole learning experience and the means of delivery are accessible, removes barriers, and considers a variety of learning needs and preferences. Students are more likely to engage with learning and to reach their full potential.

Apprenticeships provide students an opportunity to try out a job, usually with an experienced professional in the field to act as a mentor.
Clinical experiences provide hands-on experiences of a predetermined duration directly tied to an area of studies, such as nursing students participating in a hospital-based experience or child development and teacher education students participating in daycare and classroom settings.
Provide tuition or aid to support the training of students for a period of time. They are usually made by educational institutions, corporations, or foundations to assist individuals pursuing a course of study or research.
Fieldwork allows students to explore and apply content learned in the classroom in a specified field experience away from the classroom.
Internships provide students with an opportunity to test the waters in a career field and also gain some valuable work experience. Internships can be for credit, not for credit, paid, or unpaid.
Simulations and gaming/role-playing
When used as part of a course, simulations and gaming/role-playing aim to imitate a system, entity, phenomenon, or process. They attempt to represent or predict aspects of the behavior of the problem or issue being studied. Simulation can allow experiments to be conducted within a fictitious situation to show the real behaviors and outcomes of possible conditions.
