SHARJAH: Around 100 teachers from Pakistan School in Ajman attended a workshop aiming to enhance their teaching skills.

The workshop was themed ‘Know Yourself & Fellow Teachers’ and was conducted by Dr. Wasim Ahmad Malik, a prominent trainer and writer. While talking to The Gulf Today he said “the workshop was an interactive session that was conducted to bring about change in the methodology and the outlook of teachers in a simplified and easy-to-relate manner. It also addressed a wide range of questions on teacher-students relationship in the classroom and the environment in which the studies carried out.”

He pointed out that the purpose of the workshop as indicated by the theme ‘Know Yourself & Fellow Teachers’ was to provide an avenue where everyone was allowed to freely and comfortably speak their minds out. It gave everyone a chance to understand each other better – within the framework of teaching and learning processes. It was also aimed at enhancing the interpersonal and soft skills of the staff members. To enable teachers to collaborate with each other for better results with effective communication among themselves. It also worked on inculcating empathy among the staff members.

He explained about ‘student-centric’ teaching technique, as well as a model of ‘flipped classroom’ was presented.

Talking on the needs of the teachers to improve their ‘teaching ways’ in classroom, he explained, “There is a need for more interactive and engaging sessions and thought-provoking questions as it enables teachers to look at their task in a non-conventional manner.”

These sessions are fun especially when the - ‘no answer is a wrong answer’ - rule is followed, and the teachers share their ideas freely. In turn, they may create a similar environment in their classrooms which can take education one notch higher.
