Teaches are a crucial and integral part of the education system. A great teacher is crucial to a student’s development and growth. So, how does one become a great teacher? As teachers, we are always concerned about the education the students receive. But rather than focusing on the classroom, we should take a step forward and think that if education is going to improve, we must work on improving initial teacher training. Personalized education is well, not rocket science, let’s be honest here – it is much more complicated. And the training for the teachers must be such that it makes the lives of students easier and learning effective which we do not see often. Teaching is an important process, but teacher is the fundamental element in this process and it is always the method which determines the output of the system.
The teacher’s training process usually has two categories to it. The first category undertakes the coursework assigned to the students for there working year. It usually covers content, methods and psychology. The latest courses also deal with technology involvement and integration and several issues related to cultural diversity. The other category usually comes to practical learning and modelling.
Training sessions are needed to help the teachers learn or create new teaching strategies which will bring back the interest of their students in the classrooms and encourage learning. Another aspect that must be taken into consideration is the application of the topics the students learn in their lessons. The teachers also need to figure out ways for applicable learning – which actually helps the students in real world because theoretical learning will help them in gaining marks, but practical learning will help them in life.
At YMCA Public School, Nizamuddin, we give workshop and training to the teaching staff to get the best form from to the school, students and to the society. We conduct in-house as well as out-sourced training programmes.
