Ghana Society For Education Technology In Partnership With Instill Rolls Out CPD Learning Pathway For Teachers
Continuous lifelong learning is essential in today’s world to ensure that workers have the knowledge and skills to remain relevant in the global economy. Hence, educators need to be equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to prepare students for the global economy.
In order to provide the best learning experiences and support for students, it is necessary for educators to advance their professional development. With the ever-changing trends in curriculum, standards and policies in education, educators cannot help but prioritize their professional development to better serve the students’ needs and that of the country’s.
The Ghana Society for Education Technology (GSET) in partnership with Instill Education (IE), is rolling out FREE CPD courses and learning pathways for teachers. The first of these CPD pathways is dubbed “Fostering a Positive & Meaningful Classroom Culture”.
Teachers play a pivotal role in the growth of children. In this regard, a well-informed teacher is most likely the best gift any parent can give to their children. The best teachers increase the performance of their learners by 45%. Teaching as a profession suggests that professional teachers must endeavor to increase their knowledge and practice to be better positioned to address the needs of learners and competently implement a school’s curriculum.
