We conducted a Survey to find out the ways in which teachers can grow professionally. Teachers came up with applicable responses that also look after their overall growth. Here are the #Top5 answers...
A teacher’s role and growth are not limited to the classroom. If their knowledge comes in the use of students and other teachers from time to time, it helps them grow professionally too. Development in this regard can happen if a link is created between those seeking assistance and the right teachers so that learning and sharing can take place. By continuing to be a valuable resource, teachers can extend their reach and interact with a number of students and teachers.
2)Exchange of views
International associations, teacher meetings and exchange programs are ways that help teachers through their professional life. Just how students are encouraged not to stay limited to a certain zone and explore as much, teachers too should be given that space. The more this is in practice, teachers will be able to add more to their classes, research work and knowledge.
3)Practical knowledge and research
As a teacher, one feels it is important to get the right research support. While research remains continuous for many teachers, any form of ease or aid, like managing expenses, the amount of research time etc. can actually help them concentrate better on learning and the project. In short, the less number of hindrances, the better is it for a teacher to grow professionally through research work and practical exposure.
4) Staying updated
Ways of staying updated can be through teacher-related events, news, developments and patterns. Teachers should be the one who take an initiative to upgrade themselves so that any opportunity that comes in their way can be made use of.
5)Being technologically sound
Technology is the face of many industries. Education too has many technological tools in use and teachers eventually have to come face to face with it. Like any professional, teachers must incorporate the right use of technology in their classes and other academic activities.
