Critical Thinking in Self-Directed Study with EmoEles: A Pedagogical Perspective (under Innovations in Pedagogy, Self-Directed Study, and Reflective Practice)

This professional development training in Critical Thinking in Self-Directed Study with EmoEles: A Pedagogical Perspective, introduced by Cledor Education is one of four (4) courses in a portfolio titled INNOVATIONS IN PEDAGOGY, SELF-DIRECTED STUDY, AND REFLECTIVE PRACTICE.

The portfolio aims to provide participants with the knowledge of current and emerging developments in self-directed study, pedagogy, time management, and reflective practice; and how these impact learning and achievement.


This course will specifically equip in-service teachers with the skills to integrate EmoEles, a self-directed learning system that stimulates critical thinking, as a pedagogy option for effective teaching and learning in their classrooms.

The pedagogical approach of this training is based on interactive and experiential learning, whereby the participants will actively learn by interacting among themselves and with facilitators through multiple discussion boards before, during, and after the sessions; and use a hands-on approach to learning that goes beyond the day of training;

informed by their pre and post-training knowledge, experience, and reflections. These are aimed at shaping and sharpening the knowledge, competencies, and practice of participants in their profession, and enhancing their skill in the subject matter.


Participants will accumulate hands-on learning through a series of blended (onsite and online) activities aided by an optionally assigned Learning Management System (LMS), including discussion boards, onsite workshops with video demonstrations, case studies, project reports, presentations, etc.. over an estimated six-hour period (onsite).


The LMS will be assigned upon request. Participants will acquire key insights into a self-directed study that they can actively apply in their schools, classrooms, and personal development by the end of the course.


Assessment Method

The methods of assessment will, among others, emphasize participants’ hands-on application of what they have learned to improve teaching and learning in their schools and classrooms.

The LMS, once assigned, will be used by each participant to manage all their course activities. This includes registration, course materials in multimedia, quizzes, access to assigned program facilitators and client service staff, zoom meetings,

discussion boards/forums, end-of-program assessments, automatic generation of program certificates upon successful completion, and a record and status of all professional development (PD) programs attended at Cledor Education throughout the teacher’s career.


The training will focus on functional outcomes for teachers such as being able to;

(i)                equip and systematically supervise their students to apply critical thinking in their self-directed study of any standard textbook or learning medium e.g. helping students apply the EmoEles self-directed learning system as a means to discourage their tendencies to use rote methods in the learning of their subjects;


(ii)              use EmoEles as a time-saving learner-centred pedagogy option e.g. equip students to use the EmoEles self-directed learning system to self-study their topics ahead of their class lessons and share their learning during the class while the teacher relates as a guide and facilitator.



Please note that delivery will be mainly onsite with an optional LMS i.e. through workshop activities will be hosted onsite/in-person, course materials, specific activities, assessments, and certificates will also be accessible online in the LMS upon request.

The final assessment will be accessible via a Google form/Quiz.

Registration Fee

A small (discounted) fee of GH¢75 per participant will be required for this course registration.
