“Educational Leadership and Teacher Training (2014)”
During March to May, 2014 of this summer, SHANAN conducted a two week teacher training entitled “Educational Leadership and Teacher Training” in five places (Kunglone, Pyin Oo Lwin, Mandung, Myitkyina and Kutkai) there 155 teachers from over 60 villages/towns had joined. This project is funded by the Eastern Burma Community Schooling project based in Mae Sot, Thailand.
Teachers learned the most effective teaching methodologies, explored some of the challenges and salient issues confronting educators in leadership position, and learned a perspective of both formative and summative evaluation and assessment styles.
A teacher from Mandung said, “I never had this kind of teacher training before during my three years teaching life and didn’t feel being encouraged. However, I am inspired and encouraged by this training there I learned the child centered approaches and realized how it will be very helpful to build a better learning for my students. Also, I know the value of education and how it is important. Now, I know how to contribute from my part as my best.”
