Breaking the Class Size Myth for Enhanced Learning with Prof Dr Ger Graus OBE

Teach Middle East Podcast

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Have you ever wondered if smaller class sizes always translate to better learning? In this episode, we challenge that assumption with our guest, Prof Dr Ger Graus OBE, a seasoned educator and educational advisor. Ger brings a wealth of experience from traditional and non-traditional learning environments, and he’s here to shed light on the benefits of larger classrooms.


This episode goes beyond the simple notion of “less is more.” We’ll explore the value of diverse learning dynamics and how quality teaching can truly shine, regardless of class size. Ger will reveal the dynamic interplay that happens when students learn from each other and how a larger classroom environment can actually offer a richer palette of interactive and collaborative opportunities. We’ll also tackle the stigma associated with labelling in small classrooms and emphasize the importance of cultivating exceptional teachers who can steer education towards a brighter future.

But this episode doesn’t stop at the present. We’ll also take an inspired look ahead with Prof Dr Ger Graus. Get ready to explore his vision of a future where schools transcend their traditional roles. We’ll delve into the potential of AI, the exciting possibilities of integrating students’ digital fluency, and how these advancements can level the educational playing field. Join us as we embark on a journey to reimagine the boundaries of what schools can achieve and harness technology to create a more equitable and awe-inspiring education system for all.
