MYP and PBL, promoting the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals by UN)

Filimon Diamantidis,
B.Ed. Engineering, Μ.Α., M.Ed. MYP Design Technology at Psychico College Junior High School

Training course for trainers, giving the opportunity to teachers to share their knowledge and skills with colleagues. The aim of the course is for teachers to acquire the necessary knowledge and skills to then be able to train other teachers / adults.

Lecturer: Dr. Sara Bubb, Senior Lecturer, UCL Institute of Education, University of London.

The course (a total of 7.5 teaching hours) is conducted in English.

Aims and Content:

Teachers will feel confident to train other professionals.

- Understanding professional development and how adults learn

- Setting clear aims and outcomes

- How to structure and plan training

- Training techniques and strategies

- How to evaluate professional development

A Certificate of Attendance is issued.

 


This is a thematic unit of the Pedagogical Training Program, which is also offered independently to interested teachers, as well as to middle and senior executives of the Administration.

The word “mentor” is Greek; however, in Greece little effort has been made to use mentors in education.  In contrast, in many developed countries mentoring and coaching are key elements of teacher education through their training and professional careers.

Apart from the technical details, the essence of the process is the teacher’s self-reflection on his/her teaching practices as they concern the daily functioning of his/her classroom. Unlike Greece where this approach is not widespread, internationally it is considered an effective method in the professional development of teachers.

The way mentoring and coaching is used varies from country to country and from school to school.  In the Greek public school system there is no such process, whereas in other countries, such as England, the elements of this course are well-established and institutionalized.

The institution of mentor has existed at the College since its inception.  Since 2008, “Mentoring/Coaching” has been a separate course within the Pedagogical Training Program offered by our School.  Teachers in the program, using theoretical training and practical training gained from within their school unit whilst collaborating with another more experienced colleague, acquire knowledge and skills enabling them to improve their teaching practices.

Course duration: (10 lecture hours + 20 hours practice/application [in-class peer observation by pairs of teachers] + plenary session presentations)

Course taught in English

Dr. Sara Bubb, Senior Lecturer, Institute of Education, University of London.

Implementation of the Mentoring / Coaching program within the framework of the Pedagogical Training Program:

- Pairs of teachers are established:  one is a teacher registered in this program, the other an experienced teacher. It is not mandatory for the two teachers to belong to belong to the same school unit, although co-existence in the same school unit creates fewer practical problems.

- An introductory lecture is held in plenary session

- The College teacher who takes on the role of mentor will organize and present a lesson, which will be attended by the trainee teacher (mentee).

a.  Preceding the lesson,  the mentor and mentee will meet to agree on when the lesson will take place and to discuss the teaching approach that will be followed.  The mentor will give a lesson plan to his/her mentee so that the mentee will have an opportunity to review the parts of the lesson on which he/she would like to focus his/her attention, i.e. goals, time management, assessment, etc.   This initial preparation is not a commitment, but rather a way to facilitate the trainee.  

b. During the lesson, the trainee should take notes on the aspects of the lesson on which he/she is focusing his/her observation.  

c. After the lesson, there should be a discussion between the two teachers on the  aspects of the lesson that the trainee points out.

- The mentee, with help from the mentor, will then organize and present a lesson following the same process.

 - After the discussions are over, both will record the main points of their interaction.

- Once the previous steps are completed, there is a meeting with the all the teachers in the course where reports are presented.  At the end of the meeting, participants have an opportunity to comment on and assess the whole process.

The whole process should be carried out in a constructive and collegial manner that in no way is offensive, ostentatious or competitive.

 

 

  • Classroom observation of teachers by Department Heads / Coordinators in order to provide meaningful and effective feedback.
  • Programs to familiarize teachers with new technologies and their use in designing lessons so that all teachers can use new technologies in their teaching practices, based on pedagogical principles.
  • Training of specialties within Academic Departments.   The training activities of the specialty disciplines within Academic Departments are related either to the theoretical training of teachers or to the teaching of specific courses.  They are organized by the respective school units.
  • Training of middle and senior Administrators and Heads / Coordinators of Academic Departments:  Individuals holding these positions periodically attend seminars in order to have the theoretical background and skills to guide teachers in their department.
