IDENTIFYING ESSENTIAL TEACHING SKILLS

IDENTIFYING ESSENTIAL TEACHING SKILLS

One of the sources of information about teaching skills is found in the material dealing with the appraisal and performance review of established teachers (Jones et al. 2006; Middlewood and Cardrio, 2001). These include the data from lesson observation schedules and rating scales used to identify the extent to which teaching skills were displayed in the lessons observed. These writings and schedules typically focus on areas such as: preparation and planning, classroom organization and management, communication skills, setting of work for pupils, assessment of pupils’ work and record keeping, knowledge of relevant subject matter and relationships with pupils.Thomas and Pring (2004) and Petty (2006) are of the view that a set of literature on teaching skills comes from the attempts to provide an evidence base to inform developments in policy and practice in education, it includes both original research studies and systematic reviews. Such literature is an evidence base to assess the impact of different types of teaching approaches and strategies on pupils’ learning. In USA, Stronge (2002) in an analysis identified five sets of key teaching skills: the teacher as a person, teacher as a classroom manager and organizer, organizing for instruction, implementing instruction and the teacher teaching-monitoring pupil progress and potential. Another analysis by Marzano (2003) identified three sets of key skills: instructional strategies, classroom management and classroom curriculum design.

TEACHING SKILLS AND SHAD DARSHANAS : REFLECTING ON PROMINENT MICRO TEACHING SKILLS APROPOS PRAMANAS IN EPISTEMOLOGY OF INDIAN PHILOSOPHY

TEACHING SKILLS AND SHAD DARSHANAS : REFLECTING ON PROMINENT MICRO TEACHING SKILLS APROPOS PRAMANAS IN EPISTEMOLOGY OF INDIAN PHILOSOPHY

A teacher is considered the maker of destiny of a nation. He/she has a two-fold identity, that of being an educator and a life-long learner. As an educator, a teacher needs to be pedagogically sound while as a life-long learner a teacher needs to be a philosopher and have a sound knowledge of Educational Philosophy. The knowledge of Philosophy equips the teacher with the faculty of weltanschauung thereby polishing the acumen and refining teaching skills. It won‟t be an exaggeration to say that Philosophy and Pedagogy complement as well as supplement each other. The present paper reflects upon core teaching skills in the light of prominent Pramanas encompassed in Epistemology of some major schools of Indian Philosophy and also throws light on how these skills are interrelated to various Pramanas besides giving valuable suggestions pertaining to the use of same in the field of Teaching and Pre-service Teacher Education programme.

How To Develop Your Teaching Skills

How To Develop Your Teaching Skills

It is no longer prudent to ignore the fact that many “doctors tend to teach as they themselves were taught” (Irby, 1996). Staff development must address the needs of institutional programmes, policies and personnel (Webb, 1996) and teacher training is high on this agenda. Hitchcock et al. (1993) reviewed the literature and resources relating to faculty development in the health professions and concluded that teaching skills were a prominent feature, a viewpoint shared by several others (Glenn & Harden, 1985; Webb, 1996; Irby, 1996; Towle, 1998). Since then other areas of focus for faculty development have emerged such as educational leadership, teaching and assessment of professionalism and clinical skills, effective assessment methods, educational evaluation and research, and best evidence medical education (Wilkes & Bligh, 1999; Steinert, 2000; Belfield et al., 2001; Goldstein et al., 2006; Gruppen et al., 2006).

Teaching skills in virtual and blended learning environments

Teaching skills in virtual and blended learning environments

The project «University teachers’ skills for promoting significant student learning through e- learning and b-learning in the framework of the European Higher Education Area» involved two main areas of activity. The first consisted of a literature review of papers on distance learning and on the teaching skills required for this mode of education. This activity enabled us to gauge which topics were of interest and, above all, to contextualize them. The second area involved consulting experts at various Spanish universities. The resulting reports provided interesting basic information on the general charac - teristics of education in b- and e-learning modes. This research helped us to redefine the scope of our initial proposals, the type of information that we aimed to obtain and the topics that were of interest to university

Too much emphasis and importance is placed on winning too early in a player’s development. This means they are not able to make mistakes and that blocks learning! When developing the skills of ice hockey it should be done with the theme "learning by playing". To accomplish this, the Learn to Play Program uses different types of games.

Teaching Skills through Literature

Teaching Skills through Literature

in a complicated web of linguistic sophistication, and the sophistry alone suffices to constitute a challenge to break through the cordon of words that are generally ambiguous that provides an appropriate exposure to the complex patterns of language. Literature entails both the ambiguity of thoughts and the diversity of linguistic representations and therefore it is pertinent to stick to the teaching of literature as a means of decoding the language. It raises the range of vocabulary and the canvass of thoughts. If a novel is picked up for evaluation, the first task is the evaluation of the time background to suggest the socio-political tendencies, the words which are not commonly used, and the thoughts that are dressed in a highly complex form call for a more detailed engagement with the text. This is the best and perhaps the most effective way to develop the vocabulary, phrases, the stock of words, complex structures and the pieces of information compressed in a symbolic form. A novel is a document of thought expressed at a particular period and the language used can be extremely useful for the communication purposes even though they are words by the highly trained and proficient minds. However no literature can ever be seen in isolation from the language as 'language is culture'. Without a judicious selection of text the learner will be at a loss to understand the conflicting usage of language for the meaning of the word is not determined by the word alone, rather it is the context which determines its meaning. What can aid a learner, further, is the quality of mind in finding a method to respond to the situation as the teacher has their own limitations, and it will be difficult for a teacher to explain without a moderate exposure to the language or literature.

Effectiveness Of Micro Teaching Learning On Teaching Basic Skills: Do The Facilities Matter?

Effectiveness Of Micro Teaching Learning On Teaching Basic Skills: Do The Facilities Matter?

Based on the results of the research and discussion, the following conclusions can be drawn that micro teaching learning and teaching basic skills of the students of the Makassar Campus PGSD FIP Study Program are in the low category. Based on the t-test shows that the t-count ≤ t table then H0 is accepted and Ha is rejected It can be concluded that it is not effective micro teaching learning on the basic skills of teaching students in the PGSD Study Program class of 2015 Makassar Campus, Faculty of Education, Makassar State University.Based on the conclusions stated, the following suggestions are proposed: For basic teaching skills lecturers that learning in micro teaching laboratories needs to be improved again, using the best available facilities to make it easier for students to practice each teaching skill so that can improve quality in implementing micro teaching learning. Students or prospective teachers are expected to truly master, and understand various teaching skills and be serious in practicing teaching skills. For researchers, as a reference for improving the basic teaching skills of students in learning in a micro teaching laboratory, especially the PGSD Makassar Study Program. Future research may benefit from a qualitative study which would explore the deeper insight from the respondents on the micro teaching effectiveness.

THINKING SKILLS IN THE TEACHING AND LEARNING OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE

THINKING SKILLS IN THE TEACHING AND LEARNING OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE

Thinking is as natural as breathing, drinking and eating. People have an innate eagerness to discover things, to reason about the processes and activities they are involved in. But for adults learning a second language in an academic institution various dimensions of thinking play a significant role, including their beliefs, at- titudes, their capacity to remember, and the use of strategies. The aim of the article is to list, categorize and define a few (lower order and higher order) thinking skills (according to Bloom’s Taxonomy of 1956 and Newcomb’s and Trefz’s model of 1987) which might contribute to the enhancement of communicative compe- tence in learning and which students might need when studying at the university, particularly when learning the English language. Finally, an implementation of thinking skills and the development of the receptive and productive communication skills in teaching and learning are demonstrated on two university courses run in the English language.

Teaching and assessing procedural skills: a qualitative study

Teaching and assessing procedural skills: a qualitative study

Another potential tool for training and assessing resi- dents in procedural skills is the objective structured clin- ical examination (OSCE). The OSCE has demonstrated validity and reliability in multiple settings [23]. Using multiple stations in an OSCE format was the framework used for the development of the Objective Structured Assessment of Procedural Skills (OSATS) [24,25]. The OSATS is used to assess technical skills through both a procedure-specific checklist and a global rating scale of operative performance. Multiple studies have demon- strated high internal consistency and inter-rater reliabil- ity of the OSATS in laboratory multi-station settings and in the operating room [26]. A similar format was also shown to be useful for the assessment of minor surgical skills for clinical clerks and for family medicine residents [27,28]. Structured clinical instructional modules (SCIM) were developed as teaching OSCEs to compensate for difficulty in accessing relevant clinical experience and to provide opportunities to learn about clinical situations that are infrequently encountered by trainees. [29,30]. Additionally, the integrated procedural performance in- strument (IPPI) was developed to assess a candidate’s ability to not only demonstrate the technical aspect of a procedural skill, but also the non-technical aspects such as communication, collaboration and professionalism [31]. These stations are logistically more complex and may require more time if included in a more traditional OSCE. Although OSCEs and IPPIs provide opportunities for training and assessment they are expensive and labour intensive.

Design skills assessment in teaching 3D modeling

Design skills assessment in teaching 3D modeling

The inability to use these methods to assess design skills in the field of three- dimensional modeling directly is due not only to the technological differences in the production of industrial and virtual 3d objects, but also to the various requirements imposed on the final products of these industries. In addition, 3d design phase is usually performed in a free format without complying with any rules and standards for the design documentation. Sketch is the most adequate form of the design stage/phase in the field of three-dimensional modeling. Since this form is an effective tool for visual thinking,

Teaching strategies for enhancing employability skills in learners

Teaching strategies for enhancing employability skills in learners

Background/context: Twenty years ago Flinders University received the first government grant to examine the issues of leadership and management, teaching and learning, legal and ethical matters and partnerships with industry. Work-integrated learning (WIL), under its various names, at that time was an invisible cottage industry within universities. Today university leaders identify it (largely in regard to graduate employability) as a marketing tool and have created visible infrastructure to indicate its presence and focus within the institution. The reflection in this presentation is based on personal experience derived from being the recipient of the first Australian WIL grant, a reviewer to Office of Learning and Teaching (OLT) funded WIL grants and author of their Good Practice Guide, an external reviewer to WIL projects funded by OLT and as an independent consultant and reviewer to Australian Universities on WIL.

Teaching beyond knowledge and skills for the needs of the society

Teaching beyond knowledge and skills for the needs of the society

22 what needs to be done without feeling grief, regret or other difficult emotions 15,16 . However patients perceive the emotional neutrality of physicians negatively and they value emotionally attuned physicians. Patients perceive experiencing emotions by physicians in parallel with patients, as a valuable attribute of a doctor. Hojat defined empathy as a cognitive understanding mixed with feeling and communicating this understanding and feeling while demonstrating an intention to help 17 . Empathy could be better understood by comparison with sympathy. Empathy is an intellectual, advanced, non-spontaneous, effortful appraisal and understanding. Sympathy is a spontaneous, emotional, primitive and effortless arousal. Empathy demonstrates altruistic cognitive behaviour, while sympathy demonstrates egoistic and affective behaviour. Empathy creates separateness and professional satisfaction while sympathy creates attachments and causes vicarious trauma 18 . Empathy is built- in in the neuronal system in the body, but still amicable for modifications. Empathy is a learnt behaviour with neurones embedded in the neocortex that stimulates the parasympathetic system causing inhibition and energy saving and therefore burnout is less likely, while sympathy is a wildly stimulating component involving the sympathetic system relating to the limbic system and therefore burnout is more likely. (18) Hojat described 10 methods of teaching empathy that includes analysing audio or video taped encounters with patients, shadowing a patient (patient navigator), experiencing hospitalization (getting hospitalized with fabricated symptoms), engaging in small group discussion of difficult patients (Balint, 1957) and improving interpersonal skills, being exposed to role models, role-playing (ageing games), studying literature and the arts,

Teaching Motor Skills to Children with Cerebral Palsy

Teaching Motor Skills to Children with Cerebral Palsy

The intermediate skills are clustered. The order they are mastered may vary from child to child. Sits and stands holding onto a bar is listed in the beginning to assure that it is trained early. Chapter 12 explains the reasoning for this. The sitting and kneeling skills are listed side by side. It is good to work on them concurrently. Children with hypotonia may show steady progress with floor sitting. Children with hypertonia often have difficulty there. (See Chapter 10 for details.) They may show better progress with kneeling. Training sitting and variations of kneeling concurrently will assure that the children progress to the best of their ability. Training kneeling after a child is able to sit could delay her progress.

JPD: 6(2)15 Furthermore, there appears to be an increased connection between theory and real life situations with students commenting: ‘I have been able to apply business theories to a real life situation.’ Further comments related to making decisions in a real scenario where the decision cannot be undone, and learning from those decision points. The topic of thinking, reflecting and making decisions are important considerations because in the early stages of running the virtual business some students were unwilling to make decisions at all, but later perceived that they became more competent decision makers. Students also appeared to appreciate the complexities and challenges related to operating a business which are useful transferable skills to take into any business. In addition, the ability to apply learnt theory in a practical hands-on environment is viewed by students as an engaging learning experience.

Teaching speaking skills at Sudanese schools: Teachers’ perceptions

Teaching speaking skills at Sudanese schools: Teachers’ perceptions

Speaking, in Sudan, and specifically, at the basic level is a problematic one. Pupils are unable to speak or communicate freely, even in response to a simple question. They always prefer to express their ideas in Arabic. Several studies have pointed out the recent deterioration of the standard of English in Sudan. Moreover, the majority of studies published on the subject address only specific aspects of teaching reading, writing, and grammar (Nafisa, 2004; Ishraga, 2000; Aisha, 2006). There is no common ground for any approach for teaching speaking. Speaking classes are not systematic because no methods of teaching have provided about which speaking skills or language input should be used. Therefore, this study tries to investigate teaching speaking skill at Sudanese Basic schools, and the material presented by textbook.
