As you observe in the above pyramid, the Participatory Teaching Method is more effective. Many under-privileged or minority individuals and groups feel that they have no voice in the society, that they are not heard to even when they are asked to voice their opinions. Isn’t True participation means “everybody has a voice and that must be acknowledged”?
Training adults requires a Teacher to choose many teaching methods adapted to the audience, to learning objectives and to content. Some of them are flipped classrooms, debates, Project based learning, case studies, problem solving, short-term tasks, formal presentations, panel discussions, practical work sessions, workshops, Activities and role-play, multimedia sessions, simulations, blended learning and so on.
The more interactive and participatory the method being used by a Teacher, Trainer or a Facilitator, greater the focus and concentration of the audience, and the skills are acquired easily.
Thus, the participatory learning technique is more effective than the traditional method; not only in the sense that it enhances students’ achievements, but also because it leads learners to develop a more positive and favourable attitude toward any course.
