In this respect, the ultimate aim is to enable learners to understand how to take responsibility for their own development. Teachers can do this by planning and preparing teaching and learning activities that take account of the needs and well-being of individual learners as well as groups of learners. Some key aspects of a role as a teacher may be: carrying out initial and/or diagnostic assessments; clear communication with your learners, other professionals and stakeholders; promoting appropriate behaviour and respect for others; identifying and meeting individual learners’ needs; being aware of the support mechanisms available; being organised; being reflective, which means learning from successes as well as mistakes. What are my responsibilities as a teacher? As a teacher, my primary responsibility is to ensure that learners are enrolled onto the correct course, in terms of meeting their needs, abilities and aspirations.
Unit 141 Professional practice in children’s care, learning and development. Outcome 4. Be able to engage others in reflective practice. 4.1 Analyse the use of models of reflective practice in own setting. Reflective practice is important to the development of lecturers as professionals as it enables us to learn from our experiences of teaching and make easier student learning.
Keeping records is a very important reflexive tool for both teachers and learners in the educational setting. Accurate records taken throughout a course enables both teacher and students to continually reassess the effectiveness of the teaching/learning relationship by giving an ongoing measure against which to view learning objectives. Records indicate whether pupils have learnt what has been taught and are making sufficient progress with the course; who needs more help or is ready for more extensive work by assessing better or worse progress than expected; and whether teachers need to refine any aspects of their teaching by assessing successes or shortcomings where teaching needs to be strengthened. Attendance data taken on a close protection course gives an idea of where students may fall behind with learning outcomes through non attendance. Identifying non attendance could indicate a problem external to the teaching setting which may benefit from referral to other professionals or could point to students’ dissatisfaction with the teaching style which could be addressed by reassessing the teaching methods used in order to promote more inclusive practice.
UNIT 008 1. Key aspects of legislation acts is The Equality Act (2006) recognizes inclusiveness by respecting the right of learners to attend and participate, regardless of the gender, race, ethnic origin, religion, disability sexual orientation or age. Other relevant legislation include The Disability Discrimination act (1995) , The Sex Discrimination act (1975), The Race Relation Act (1976), The Equal Pay Act (1970), The human rights acts (1998) and The Health and Safety at work (1974) Act. "Learners are entitled to learn in a safe and healthy environment". As a tutor working in the adult education sector it is beneficial for me to have knowledge of legislations applicable to teaching, such as The Data Protection Act (1998), which governs the protection of personal data of my learners.
Introduction In this assignment I am going to cover the role of the teacher, the responsibilities that they have in the education and training environment. I will also discuss how to maintain a safe and supportive learning environment for your learners. To end the essay I will discuss the relationship teachers have with other professionals who work in the education and training arena. The teaching role and responsibilities in education and training 1.1 Explain the teaching role and responsibilities in education A teacher adopts many roles within the learning environment and has many responsibilities. One of the key responsibilities I feel for a teacher is to provide information, wisdom.
ENABLING AND ASSESSING LEARNING The importance of assessment Assessment in their numerous forms are vital elements in the learning process. Assessment is typically used to obtain information and used appropriately, the variety of assessment methods and tools will identify the level at which the learner is starting out on their educational journey. They support the teacher in evaluating teaching methods and help in identifying that learning has taken place. Meaningful assessment tools also recognise gaps in learning to enable adaptation in materials to better meet the needs of the student. The different forms of assessment lend themselves to supporting this process.
Continually improving knowledge and practice can be named as professional development which is an essential component of organisational success. Professional development enables an organisation to keep up to date and to change pro actively so that their service is relevant and appropriate. Planned development is listened to achieve specific outcomes that may be either focused on the needs of an individual and/or may contribute to the learning needs of an organisation. Professional development is a process. This implies that it is an on-going activity and needs to be thought about as something that is incremental with different elements contributing to a large whole.
Pttls Assignment Theory Task 4 Simon Stewart WXB9746 Explain the ways in which you could establish ground rules, with your current/future learners that underpin behaviour and respect for others. Ground rules are described as, “An agreed code of behaviour within a learning group.” (Francis and Gould p266. )Ground rules are not just a collection of mandatory rules for example, those based around health and safety, but those which are agreed by the learner and their tutor. Ground rules are important to the whole group; it enables them to form a cohesive group promoting individual learning, giving the learners a sense of ownership of the rules and their learning environment and so that they know exactly what is expected of them when in the classroom environment. I would prepare a list of ground rules which would include, punctuality, turning off mobile phones, active listening, individual participation, hand in work on time and respect each other and their opinions.
Also submit a brief justification of the approaches you intend to use, in relation to the learning needs of your peer-group. This justification could refer back to work previously submitted for PTLLS Assignments 4,5 and 6. 7) Delivering your micro-teach PTLLS: Using inclusive learning and teaching approaches in lifelong learning 2.1 Demonstrate inclusive learning and teaching approaches to engage and motivate learners 2.2 Demonstrate the use of appropriate resources to support inclusive learning and teaching 2.3 Use assessment methods to support learning and teaching 2.4 Communicate with learners to meet their needs and aid their understanding 2.5 Provide constructive feedback to learners PTLLS: Understanding inclusive learning and teaching in lifelong learning 2.4 Review how to provide opportunities for learners to practice their literacy, language, numeracy and ICT skills With the exception of UILTLL 2.4, the above criteria all imply skills that you will need to demonstrate during your (brief) micro-teach. You will be required to reflect critically on (self-assess) your own performance using the Micro-teach Observation form in Annex A and your tutor/assessor will also use this same document for summative assessment and feedback. You will notice that this observation form is cross-referenced to the criteria listed above and
Jesus Gonzales Teaching Case Reflection As teachers we learn through doing, but experience is not the only thing that makes effective teachers. Knowledge is equally important in becoming an effective teacher. With knowledge we have a responsibility to share it with others to the best of our ability and to know when we need to adapt our sharing techniques. Teaching cases are examples of specific teaching experiences and are one way that teachers can reflect and add to their knowledge database. Each example can be examined by different perspectives, identifying the problems, and suggesting some solutions.
