This course is a multi-workshop series for all teachers in RAK that focuses attention on the classroom, specifically on the importance of teacher professional development in changing teachers’ classroom behaviours in ways that lead to an improvement in student performance.
The course aims at raising participants’ awareness of the importance of reflecting on their teaching to improve their practice. Only through reflection can teachers assess themselves and look clearly at their successes and struggles and consider options for change and doing things differently.
During this course, the participants will develop better classroom instructions and more effective questioning techniques. They will be able to provide students with more meaningful feedback to enhance their learning. They will be introduced to a set of ‘lesson frameworks’ to give them an outline of how to structure their lessons. In short, participants will begin a process of reflection on their classroom management, share with peers and may decide to do things in a different way. And that is what professional development is all about.
