Teaching Reflection This paper is set out as a reflection of the teaching conducted for the current group of students in the 2017 Cohort of MOD 001869.The challenge with the teaching is that it is meant to be collaborative teaching because three members are within the group and everybody should be actively involved in the planning and delivery of the teaching. Team teaching can be motivating learning activities for both the students and the teachers as it ensures an open and egalitarian learning environment which is learner centred. The teaching team bring a wide variety of ideas, knowledge, opinions, various teaching styles and personality to model collaborative teaching which could in-turn affect the learning behaviour of the student positively…show more content…
It was agreed that the teaching should be on appraisal since the topic cut across all professional fields and equally relevant in learning development and curriculum modification through appropriate feedback from students and teachers alike. Equally the preparation of the learning materials and how to go about the teaching as a team to depict the collaborative teaching model. Interestingly, the topic was not difficult to determine amongst the three of us, though we had to meet up four times before agreeing on the final draft of the mode of teaching and learning materials. However, this is to be expected as it has been found out that one of the downsides of collaborative / team teaching is time involvement due to a wide variety of ideas and opinions which needed to ironed out amongst the team (Friend and Cook 2003).
