Teacher’s Roles to Facilitate Active Learning

Alexandra Kudryashova, Tatyana Gorbatova, Svetlana Rybushkina, Elena Ivanova


This article gives a detailed analysis on the role of a teacher in the modern educational environment and justifies the need to reconsider instructional strategies following the shift from teaching to learning that has recently appeared in higher professional education and was provoked by a growing access to professional knowledge and revision of requirements to university graduates under the pressure of societal, academic and industrial community. The Bloom’s taxonomy and the 5E’s Instructional model that are commonly applied in active learning are reviewed and compared. Their significant similarity and compatibility is used to define the teaching approaches that best fit the new educational goals. A teaching model is proposed to provide educators with guidelines on how to facilitate a successful active learning where the authors specify optimal teaching roles for each learning phase.
