New Interactive Caring Education with Planned Outcomes for Transformation
A Three (03) day Teachers’ Training Workshop on Teachers’ Personal and professional Development
February 23, 24, 25 (Thu, Fri, Sat – 8.00am to 4.00pm)
Difference Between Traditional and Modern Teaching-Learning:
Traditional Teacher doesn’t allow late students to attend class to learn a valuable lesson of time management, Modern Teacher values time and makes the students realize that time should be respected and consequences may arise if they don’t manage it well. In one way or another BOTH TEACHERS touch the lives of every student traditional or modern in any case, it depends on how the students value and appreciate it. If traditional literacy means the ability to read and write effectively, then digital literacy means the ability to communicate and create digitally. Simply put, traditional curriculum is a more linear approach to learning while progressive curriculum provides more hands-on research, sudden program detours, and a chance to learn things in the field. Traditional Teacher speaks with authority and imposes rules to be followed, Modern Teacher speaks with compassion and allows students to be proactive in decision making. Traditional Teacher is strict and by the book approach, Modern Teacher is considerate BUT makes the student realize the advantage and disadvantage of every action.
Today’s challenges that students and educators encounter are not new. Students and teachers need to think critically, communicate effectively, collaborate with diverse peers, solve complex problems, adopt a global mindset, and engage with information and communications technologies, to name just a few requirements, in order to participate effectively in the increasingly complex societies and globalized economy that characterize today’s world. The global education community has been more vocal and active in support of the necessary changes, as traditional educational institutions have often not been educating students to meet such difficulties. The way other nations (and the larger education sector) see 21st century skills generally may be a challenge for the teachers with regards to environments with little resources, packed curriculum, poorly prepared teachers, fragility, poor governance etc.
Many teachers don’t keep up with their teaching dossiers, thus they continue to act unprofessionally. Tailor your dossier specifically to reflect your teaching. There are some variations of the items included in a dossier simply because it is a highly individual document. If you are a teacher and want to promote yourself to the next step just start keeping and maintaining a teaching dossier.
Dossier is a file containing detailed records on a particular person while a teaching dossier is a teaching dossier (or teaching portfolio) is a professional document that summarizes your beliefs about teaching and provides evidence of your teaching experiences and abilities. The dossier should include a thesis statement (teaching philosophy), pieces of evidence, and descriptions and analyses of that evidence. You might also include future directions for further developing your teaching and your students’ learning in the goal section of the dossier. Putting together a teaching dossier provides the opportunity to reflect on your teaching experiences, contributions, and strengths and share feedback from students and colleagues. Your teaching dossier conveys the range of your teaching contributions, including elements such as:
efforts to improve or expand your pedagogical knowledge and practices
course design and teaching methods
self-evaluation and reflective practices
facilitation and leadership skills
roles in curriculum development
engagement with teaching scholarship
commitment to teaching
Consider keeping track of teaching dossier elements from your first teaching experience. Keep copies of syllabi and student feedback, and record successful learning activities and assessments, course design and redesign activities, and contributions to curriculum work. A prepared dossier will help you to have all your materials ready when you need them. Otherwise, to create the documents with evidence will be difficult for you at times. So, try to develop a habit of consciously compiling the teaching-related activities and events in which you are involved.
This training workshop is for those who want to be committed and professional teachers and want to apply various methods and techniques consciously and efficiently.
