Last 2 decades has witnessed significant change in our Education system. Transformation is enormous and the teaching fraternity must learn to understand and appreciate their new role.
With free access to extraordinary educational material across diverse platform things are becoming more challenging. Technology has disrupted almost every aspect of our lives and the only way to survive is through adaptation and change.
Teacher must change their profile from EXPERT to FACILITATOR. Most of the teaching fraternity lives with the illusion of being EXPERT in their discipline, but the reality is that the quality of teaching as a profession has gone down over the last decade. This is the reason teaching fraternity is advised to take up the role of facilitator and be the active part of the classroom learning experience.
No more teachers can assume that what they know is extraordinary and that every day they are producing amazing content for their discipline or subject. As a matter of fact most of the times students are more updated than what we are.
With teachers changing their work profile the entire Education system is undergoing a major transformation. Educational Institutions are now forced to focus in developing Competencies amongst their students rather than transferring KNOWLEDGE.
It is essential that we must know the difference between transferring knowledge and that of being a facilitator. We have to accept the facts that most of us have gone wrong in our approach of teaching and we can only change if we accept. ACCEPTANCE is key to CHANGE
