Assessment is the method used in educational institutions (schools, universities) to determine whether a person has gained sufficient knowledge in that discipline. Assessment can be informal, formative or summative. I believe that assessment is happening all the time. In a classroom you are continually assessing understanding by looking at how learners are responding
Ontology epistemology and methodology are related to one’ s belief about truth and how it relates to his or her own research. For a researcher, knowing about his own ontological beliefs are important as it guides the epistemological and methodological aspects of any research. Moreover, it also helps the researcher to look at the work of other researchers and make sense of it – understand where the other researcher is coming from (in terms of his or her believes about truth). Only once a researcher is knowledgeable about these terms, he or she can produce a coherent research work – one that is not disconnected in its ontological beliefs and epistemological and methodological choices. Another important aspect of these terms is that they enable a researcher to provide an intelligible critique of work done by other researchers and formulate an educated reply to any critique of his or her own work.
Houle (1980) identifies several objectives of continuing professional education, including clarifying the profession’s functions, mastery of theoretical knowledge, self enhancement, formal training, credentialing, creation of subculture, legal reinforcement, public acceptance, ethical practice, penalties and relations to users of services. He believes that the ultimate aim of continuing professional education is to prepare practitioners not only to use the best ideas and techniques of the moment but also to expect that they will be modified or replaced. He also believes that the primary responsibility for learning should rest with the individual and the goals of continuing professional education should be concerned with the entire process of professionalization. The continuing of professional education should be considered part of a process which continues throughout life, the patterns of methods of continuing professional education should be planned and conducted in terms of one of the three modes of education: inquiry, instruction,
According to the model, the universities are responsible for the cultivation of science as well as scholarship in broadest and deepest sense. Under this model, collaboration follows the process in which the achievement of one person help to increase the intellectual passion and enthusiasms of others (Zhan,et al., 2005p. 167). In this process, the teacher as well as students both have their justifications for the pursuit of knowledge which is common. Therefore the goal of science and scholarship work hand in hand to synthesis the dispositions of the teacher as well as the student.
Feedback is a significant element in determination of education quality as well as in effective learning where it portrays the learning outcomes for students and the successes for the tutors. There are many aspects that concern educationists with regards to feedback but the relationship between perspectives of learning as well as teaching and feedback stands as the most important among them. Feedback should be conveyed in different modes in a learning environment but whatever mode chosen creates room for dialogue between the tutor and students. Therefore, it is only through feedback that the student engagement relationship with the feedback as well as the tutors’ perceptions of learning, teaching and assessment that such successes can be established. The Rationale Feedback is closely related to learning and teaching theories making it a significant element in learning despite the theories that may be adapted.
I will contribute to the class my commitment and dedication to fully immerse myself into the educational experience and will help others to gain maximum knowledge from the class. I will be proactive and not only engage in discussions, but also initiate them. I bring along a strong grasp of fundamentals and an aptitude for teamwork and teaching and a zest for learning. When I leave, I would like to have with me, in addition to a deep understanding of Artificial Intelligence, a strong network of friends and long lasting relationships with my teachers and fellow students. Having the guidance of eminent researchers to guide me, I am certain that I will be able to achieve my goals and bring a great contribution to the institution and community I belong
IT use in the classroom more and more widely, and teachers how reasonable and effective use of information technology, which requires teachers to fully understand the role of IT in the classroom teaching. IT use in the classroom more and more widely, and teachers how reasonable and effective use of information technology, which requires teachers to fully understand the role of information technology in the classroom, this paper tries to discuss the following aspects of information technology in classroom teaching role: to change the traditional teaching methods; strengthen the leading role of teachers; increase student interest in learning, active classroom atmosphere; disperse teaching difficult to break through teaching focus, to promote
Classroom management is also a science because it is a group of behaviors which the teacher uses to create a proper educational environment to achieve desired aims. In my opinion, classroom management is the backbone of teaching and one of the most important matters. Really, this
INTRODUCTION Teaching and learning processes are the activities which centered on the teacher and students’ activities in the classroom. The main point in the teaching and learning processes is to guide the students to achieve successful learning goals. The students’ success in learning is influenced by some factors, whether internal or external factor. One of the external factors that greatly affect the success of students’ learning depends on the teachers’ way in managing the teaching and learning activity in the classroom. The teachers are expected to create a creative, interesting and active learning environment to achieve those goals.
Similarly to CAS and yet in a different manner, TOK is also a very important part of a student’s holistic education and their understanding of the importance of their knowledge. TOK teaches students the different ways of knowing, along with the different types of knowledge. This course revolves around questions that aim to give more meaning to a student’s education and increase their awareness of where the nature of knowledge comes from; one of the many things it teaches students is that sometimes it doesn’t matter what is said, but what evidence is used to support what is said. Comparatively, both TOK and CAS aim to create an interconnection between all the academic subject areas. Through different ways, both core IB requirements aim to create a better student as a whole, instead of an academics-centered student or a sports-centered student; instead of something like this, they aim to create a well-balanced student with interest in all different areas of life.
