Instrumental Enrichment is a critical thinking programme originally developed by Professor Reuven Feuerstein. It consists of a series of non-curricular tasks, designed to strengthen learning skills through various cognitive exercises.
There are two sets of Instrumental Enrichment programmes: The IE Basic programme for young children and low-functioning individuals, and the IE Standard programme, which is used with children aged nine and older, high-school students, and adult learners of all ages. Learners are guided through the tasks by a mediator who helps them develop strategies for problem solving and analytic thinking that they can apply to the rest of their lives.
IE Standard is a series of structured paper-and-pencil exercises that gradually increase in levels of difficulty and abstraction. The materials are organised into workbooks called “instruments” and each instrument focuses on a specific cognitive area. There are 14 instruments in the IE Standard programme. This course, IE Standard I, covers the first four instruments, namely: organisation of dots, analytic perception, comparison and orientation in space I.
IE Standard can be used in a classroom or workplace setting, with small groups of targeted learners, and as a one-to-one therapeutic intervention.
IE training may only be provided by certified Feuerstein-supervised professionals who have mastered the Feuerstein learning methods and have several years of experience in the field. On completion of the course, attendees will be registered with the Feuerstein Institute in Israel, who will issue the relevant certificate. Practitioners require this documentation to purchase additional materials and to utilise the instruments.
