Moreover, an extra opportunity to strengthen the M&E processes of TTD lieswithin the Teacher Development Master Plan that aims to train 280 new inspectors in a five yearperiod by 2014.
TTD will also be responsible for the dissemination of educational materials in print as well as digitallearning objects through a web-portal.
A comprehensive set of posters is developed together with the teacher trainers. Selection was based on concrete demands. The set will be used and evaluated during the pilot phase. Each poster has an activity sheet consisting of background, activities, tips…
TTD will assume final responsibility for the integrationof the developed materials and trainings in their professional development planning and processes.
Target group: science teacher trainers and ?? Selected teachers from practice schools.Challenge: to train and monitor teachers from practice schools.1. Selection of tools & experiments for inquiry-based science teaching
Target group: science teacher trainers and ?? Selected teachers from practice schools.Challenge: to train and monitor teachers from practice schools.In addition, I'm considering if I can incorporate one more activity in the final year, which is “Subject-wise Study Group Meeting at RTTC” so that science teachers in cooperative schools get together subject-wise once a month at RTTC, share the difficulties in one’s teaching, and get practical ideas and academic support from RTTC trainers in charge of that subject.In my idea, all of these activities will be handled by a POE secondary office (with inspectors)in an integrated fashion.
The ToT team consists of a group of teacher trainers and teachers, appointed by the management ofthe partner institutes, and are selected from the pilot phase working groups. Input training is given bythe ToT team and materials, manuals etc. are disbursed. The composition of the ToT team will dependon the requirements for each training session with some sessions organised at a central location,preferably at the pilot TTC. The same ToT team will be responsible for the subsequent steps;
