Teaching Methodology

We think too much about effective methods of teaching and not enough about effective methods of learning.

IMPORTANCE OF EDUCATION

  • All religions attaches  great importance to knowledge and education.
  • When the Qur'an began to be revealed, the first word of its first verse was 'Iqra' that is, read.
  • “Education is the manifestation of perfection already in man” – (Swami Vivekananda)
  • They are not students of our generation, where they sit down and listen. I think things have changed now; they want to explore, cut and paste.

ANALYSIS OF TRADITIONAL METHOD OF TEACHING

  • Pre-technology education context, the teacher is the sender or the source.
  • The educational material is the information or message.
  • The student is the receiver of the information.
  • The delivery medium

   “chalk-and- talk” method

   overhead projector (OHP) transparencies.

  • In such a lecture students assume a purely passive role and their concentration fades off after 15-20 minutes.

LIMITATIONS

  • Teaching in classroom using chalk and talk is “one way flow” of information
  • Teachers often continuously talk for an hour without knowing students response  and feedback.
  • The material presented is only based on lecturer notes and textbooks.
  • There is insufficient interaction with students in classroom.
  • More emphasis has been given on theory without any practical and real life time situations.
  • Learning from memorization but not understanding.
