In this webinar Colin Bangay looks at teacher education in resource constrained countries with growing school age populations. Colin argues that in order to deliver, there must be a stronger link between how teacher education is managed on a macro scale and how individuals are supported in their development into and growth as teachers.
The presentation focuses on the system realities that frame decisions on teacher education commenting on:
- demand vs supply
- speed vs cost
- certification vs motivation
- training vs continuous professional development
The presentation does not provide any ‘blue print solutions’ other than that the logical cycle of diagnosis, analysis, reflection and action that underpins the ‘teaching for success’ approach needs to be applied with equal rigour to broader system constraints.
The session was recorded at the Teaching for Success online conference in October 2016.
