Learning outcomes
- rozvoj čtenářské gramotnosti a návaznost na jejich čtenářské zkušenosti (osobní, pedagogické i rodičovské). Oslovujeme tedy studenty jako čtenáře, (budoucí) učitele a (potenciální) rodiče;
- rozvoj klíčových dovedností studentů (kompetence k učení, řešení problému, komunikativní, sociální a personální, občanské) a dalších dovedností pro 21. století (např. digitální gramotnost).
- oslovit důležitá osobní i společenská témata prostřednictvím četby;
- modelovat moderní výukové metody a přístupy (projektová výuka, zážitkové učení aj);
- integrovat zahraniční zkušenost a inspiraci do výukové praxe; - podporovat celoživotní vzdělávání prostřednictvím kultivace čtenářských návyků;
- uchopit LDM jako nástroj mezigeneračního, občanského a transnacionálního dialogu;
- uchopit LDM jako prostředek k rozvoji kreativity a představivosti;
- modelovat koncept sdíleného učení;
- implementovat teorii extenzivního volnočasového čtení dle S. Krashena
