Holistic teaching focuses on preparing the learner to meet any challenges they may face in life and within a work setting. They can learn about themselves, develop resilience and develop social and emotional development. A learner who feels confident and valued will be more able to absorb new knowledge and apply to real work settings and is more likely to continue their studies when they see it affecting them in a meaningful way. If as an assessor you are mindful to the learner as an individual and take into account their learning style and abilities it aids you in tailoring your teaching manner and methods that give all the best chance of success. It is good to show they are being stretched and challenged and evidence this in their feedback to aid their professional
The mentor will ensure they will create opportunities, and establish times to meet together to discuss certain topics. Doing this will show the mentee that the mentor in-facts cares and is genuine about the mentorship. Furthermore, a mentor should put the interest of the mentee first, helping the mentee in every possible way they can in order for the mentee to the most successful they can be in their career. Lastly, a mentor should always give constructive feedback, establishing trust within the relationship. That said, a mentee needs to hold a certain expectation of the mentor throughout the mentorship.
“Preventative discipline” involves the development of effective teaching strategies, tactics, organisation and planning by the teacher. Understanding the power of words and what teachers model to the learner Rogers terms “corrective discipline” and lastly, “supportive discipline” is described as creating a positive and enriched learning environment that also includes the student in developing resolutions to discipline issues (Rogers p. 4). However, Rogers asserts, it is the teacher’s philosophical position, both implicit and explicit, that will be
The key to being successful in life, I think, is figuring out who you are as a person. Just as you should know your own strengths and weaknesses, likes and dislikes, you should also know which learning style suits you best. Identifying your preferred learning style sets you up for success by enabling you to work, learn and live to your full potential. While we all have an instinctive preference, or dominant learning type, no one is completely kinesthetic or completely auditory; everyone uses a combination. Knowing how you learn is important as it can enhance your ability to study and retain information more efficiently, and also leave room for improvement in areas that are not your strong suit.
(MacDonald 66) Response 4: I learn from this that active listening is a powerful tool that helps tutees provide explanation of the subject. By answering with “uh huh” when a tutee is explaining about the assignment. Opens up the mind of the tutee towards the subject and provides enthusiasm to learn more about the topic. This promotes that the tutees search, read and find the answers on their own. Tutors are there to support and to make sure that they are getting their assignment correct.
Honey and Mumford (1992) argue that in order to maximise one 's own personal learning, each learner ought to understand their learning style and seek out opportunities to learn using that style. To help individuals recognise their preferred learning style, Honey and Mumford (1992) developed a Learning Style Questionnaire. However, to be an effective learner you should also develop the ability to learn in other styles too. Therefore, it is good to choose activities outside your preferred style
3.1) Theories of Behaviour Management Behaviour management is a tool, a system, generates learning environment to encourage positive behaviour and minimise the opportunity for negative conduct to occur. It is like modifying and change learner's action in a positive manner where the primary focus lies on maintaining order. Many theorists presented their views in their research work on the understanding of the nature of the behaviour BILL ROGER is an education consultant and author present his work on behaviour management, discipline, effective teaching, and stress management etc. and also lectures widely covers the topic to both the learner and the teacher for the challenges facing in leadership in educational premises. Bill Roger recommended
Comparatively, the knowledge of learning is another valuable element to Social Reconstructionists. Schiro (2008) explains that learning takes place when students “have inculcated into them a way of viewing events in their environment through an intelligence oriented around a vision of a future good society” (Schiro, 2008, pg 180). Coupled with the knowledge component, learning is expressed when the students have placed the wants and needs of society as a whole, above what they might feel is fair. The evaluation component is analyzed when the knowledge and learning have been presented and the betterment of the community is
If educators can find ways to support autonomous motivation in the delivery of instruction, then optimal learning can be achieved (Niemiec & Ryan, 2009). Deci and Ryan (2000) postulate that an individual needs intrinsic motivation as well as three intrinsic psychological needs in order to initiate these behaviours and maintain good psychological well-being and self-determination (as cited by Niemiec & Ryan 2009). These universal needs are autonomy, competence, and relatedness. These components together form the self-determination model which emphasizes supporting student autonomy in order to achieve positive learning outcomes. Intrinsic motivation refers to behaviours done in the absence of external impetus that are inherently interesting and
As discussed previously, effective lesson planning can have a positive effect on the motivation on a teacher. This is certainly the case for effective planning in the workplace. It also aids in satisfaction. Although the lesson plan’s primary objective is to improve the overall quality of teaching to benefit students, this also improves teacher motivation and development. This is achieved through using the lesson plan as a permanent record of lessons taught.
