In education, authentic learning is an instructional approach that allows students to explore, discuss, and meaningfully construct concepts and relationships in contexts that involve real-world problems and projects that are relevant to the learner. The basic idea is that students are more likely to be interested in what they are learning, more motivated to learn new concepts and skills, and better prepared to succeed in college, careers, and adulthood if what they are learning mirrors real-life contexts, equips them with practical and useful skills, and addresses topics that are relevant and applicable to their lives outside of school. Authentic instruction will take on a much different form than traditional teaching methods. In the traditional classroom, students take a passive role in the learning process. Knowledge is considered to be a collection of facts and procedures that are transmitted from the teacher to the student.
Most language teachers recognize the value of using authentic materials for teaching and learning purposes. This article focuses on two major applications of authentic materials: developing learners' language skills, and orienting learners to the application of these skills in possible subsequent activities in the outside world. The writers describe their experiences in selecting and using authentic materials, and in designing and evaluating tasks that illustrate such applications at tertiary level.

As greater accountability in higher education grows, authentic learning has found a prominent place in the education agenda. Technology continues to open up possibilities for innovative and effective learning opportunities, and students and teachers are no longer happy to accept familiar classroom-based pedagogies that rely on content delivery and little else. Authentic learning environments have their foundations in situated approaches to learning which advocate that learning is best achieved in circumstances that resemble the real life application of knowledge. Authentic Learning Environments in Higher Education provides a coherent description of the principles that guide the development of an authentic learning environment, and gives concrete examples across a wide range of discipline areas. The book helps teachers to reflect on the important elements of an authentic approach, and to use the descriptions of a range of implementations to guide their own design and development of an authentic learning environment.
Authentic Learning describes learning activities that are either carried out in real-world contexts, or have high transfer to a real-world setting. Personal relevance means that learners should be able to connect the new information they are learning to their lives outside of the classroom and their theories about how the world works. As Tochon points out, there is something of a paradox in planning to be authentic. Although instructors are advised to come to class equipped with a plan, they also should be open to where their students take the learning task. Mayo describes how instructors may have to shift their perception of their own role in the class from that of sage on the stage to guide on the side.
This study probed the conceptualization of in authenticity in teaching and the way it could be enacted in pedagogical practices. The participants were a purposive sample of 20 Iranian university teachers. Data were collected using in-depth interviews, field notes, and observation. The collected data were analyzed through the lens of hermeneutic phenomenology. Inauthenticity was also conceptualized as teacher-centered classroom manifested in the monologic discourse and traditional assessment which could confirm the dialogical nature of authenticity in teaching.
Wiggins, a researcher and consultant on school reform issues, is a widely-known advocate of authentic assessment in education. This article is based on materials that he prepared for the California Assessment Program. Assessment is authentic when we directly examine student performance on worthy intellectual tasks.
Ложь была единственным способом избавить тебя от неприятностей. Сьюзан кивнула. - А неприятности немалые.
Когда он перевернул ее на спину и взгромоздился сверху, она подумала, что сейчас он ее раздавит. Его массивная шея зажала ей рот, и Росио чуть не задохнулась. Боже, поскорей бы все это закончилось, взмолилась она про. - Si.
Слишком уж удобная версия. Стратмор пожал плечами. - Слабое сердце… да к тому же еще испанская жара. Не забывай и о сильнейшем стрессе, связанном с попыткой шантажировать наше агентство… Сьюзан замолчала. Какими бы ни были обстоятельства, она почувствовала боль от потери талантливого коллеги-криптографа.
Что. - Местная валюта, - безучастно сказал пилот.
