Title: Teaching methodology, traditional to modern techniques. Episode: 1
Post by: tariq on November 13, 2018, 09:23:32 PM
Who is a Teacher? To answer this question one can mention: anyone who is intentionally or unintentionally educating someone about something. This something can range from very basic behavioral approach like a baby cries when in discomfort to very complex activities like designing space shuttle. In this context everything we see around us can be considered as a teacher. We all know the famous story of Robert Bruce who learned perseverance from a spider in a cave. However, this vague definition of "Teacher" is not going to be very helpful to discuss teaching methodology so let us consider a formal definition. According to wikipedia "A teacher (also called a school teacher or, in some contexts, an educator) is a person who helps others to acquire knowledge, competences or values." Though not mentioned here, a specific institution is necessary where the teacher will be employed and will teach a group of people called student to call him a teacher. So a teacher will teach a group of students various discipline of knowledge, values and make him a better person. How the teacher will teach these things? This is where the term teaching methodology comes into formation. Though around the world numerous researches are conducted regarding teaching methodology, this is still a new and less used concept in out country. We are still convinced that traditional teaching methodology is brought to us from heaven and it is unchangeable. We are still not ready to accept various newly developed concept or teaching model. What is this traditional teaching method? We don't need to look for this answer in books or internet. We just need to retrospect. How we were taught in our schools, colleges and even university? A common answer will be: we woke up in the morning, took the bag full of books and notebooks, went to the institution where our respected teachers came and recited some lectures with some chalk board work and then left. We were judged by a written exam where we were awarded for memorizing, understanding and for being capable of answering the questions in the exam paper. But definitely have the right to ask questions when we had difficulty in understanding but was the environment very helpful for asking questions? This is traditional style where the teaching is teacher centered. The teacher will decide how we will be taught and what will be taught. I am not blaming the system as it has showed its excellence for many years. But that doesn't mean it can not be modified for student betterment.

I believe in maintaining a respectfully distant friendship with my students. I give them access and help them in a friendly way. I personally do not believe in being too traditional a teacher.
