|Understanding Teaching and Learning||The session on UTL aims at understanding the teaching process through relating to the teacher’s personal learning experiences; analyzing how learning happens; practicing the simple principles of learning through activities; discussing what successful teaching and learning mean; understanding and analyzing one’s own styles of teaching and the role of values in a teacher’s life.|
|Teachers as Designers of Instruction||The module aims to help teachers become designers of instruction. It involves understanding the process of designing programmes and lesson plans thoroughly; writing and understanding the difference between aims and objectives; learning about components of a comprehensive plan; and detailed practice in designing lessons.|
|Enquiry and Problem based Learning||Learners learn best when they ask questions and seek answers on their own through inquiry. This module looks at analysing inquiry-based learning, constructivism, and how the approach can be practiced effectively in the classroom. Trainees will be taken through the process of inquiry through discussions, examples, videos, and case studies.|
|Classroom and Behavior Management||Teachers find it increasingly difficult to manage a classroom effectively due to several factors. Often, a teacher starts off enthusiastically with great ideas and plans, but is unable to implement them due to ineffective communication and behaviour management. The module analyzes teacher behaviour that influences and impacts a classroom and learning experiences.|
|Instructional Tools Around us||The module looks at how seemingly simple, inexpensive and easily available resources like the blackboard, newspapers, and display boards can make the teaching/learning process interesting and meaningful and provide peripheral learning opportunities.|
|Assessment for Learning||This module focuses on developing a complete understanding of how assessments can be designed and implemented as an on-going process, to gauge and determine learner progress and consequently raise learners’ standards of performance. The module incorporates hands-on practice in creating effective and thoughtful assessment tools, customized to the needs and abilities of the learners with emphasis on giving constructive feedback. The module focuses on thinking of creative ways to design summative tests and examinations that are reliable and give an accurate picture of the learner’s progress.|
|Evaluation of Program and Practice||This module focuses on Principles of Evaluation, Evaluating Plan and Practice and Professional Development. Trainees will reflect on practice – evaluate plans, observe selected sessions (videos) and evaluate them. Trainees will practice the art of giving and receiving feedback.|
