This program teaches the often overlooked but important skill of learning how to learn. The Feuerstein Instrumental Enrichment (FIE) program aims to educate students on how to learn, think, approach and solve problems. The unique educational technique combines specially designed instruments and mediation in order to identify and enhance an individual's learning potential.
Participants should attend if they wish to complete the entire FIE program which is divided into three five day workshops.
- understanding of how to identify learning difficulties or areas of assistance required in a child's learning process
- techniques to motivate and strengthen specific ways of thinking in others
- understanding of how identify and assess the cognitive skills that are slowing down learning
- Exploration of ways to entrust students with responsibility for a collaborative approach and to find solutions to problems instead of supplying a solution.
