 I believe that PBL is the effective teaching method that can not only facilitate students with knowledge but also cultivate their communication skill, critical thinking skill, creativity skill and copperation skill. I would like our teachers to understand the whole process more deeply and use the information they receive from the training to reflect on the projects they have done before.

A classroom environment that is managed well, where students understand what is expected of them, have clear routines and follow classroom rules and procedures, is a prerequisite for effective learning. Learning happens when students are curious, focused, interested, and engaged; disruptions happen when they are bored, confused, or struggling to keep up.

Creating a positive learning environment of mutual respect, where students feel safe and able to take risks, allows fruitful exploration of ideas and effective learning to take place.

Conversely, poor classroom management wastes so much time. If a teacher feels like they get to the end of every lesson having covered only half of the things that they set out to, it is probably down to their classroom management techniques.

So, in order to be more efficient in class, in order to cover all the material that they would like to, a focus on classroom management techniques might be their saving grace.

I think it is vital to hold the conference to keep up with the modern pedagogical trends. Students learn differently, and our decisions in the classroom have a lot of influence on their studies. Understanding how students perceive information and what we can do about it is beneficial to our classroom instructional methods. 

The PD conference allows teachers to spend some time interpreting, analyzing, and discussing classroom scenarios. Teachers can likewise apply what they learned in the lecture to the teaching of their subject. 

My topic focused on the organicist nature of education and how we can implement various curriculum theories to lead students on the path to self-regulated learning – a significant step to success in higher education. I mainly focused on existentialist, pragmatic, and deliberative curricula, how these can be integrated into an academically evolving classroom, and how the synthesis of various curricula can lead to a student-centered and student-led learning method, allowing them to pursue knowledge based on individual interests.

In my session, we discussed the topic about the roles teachers play in the U.S. college admission process from two perspectives, 1) why and what school grades are considered as the most important factors to college admission, and 2) why teacher’s recommendation letter matters. After understanding the importance of both school grades and teachers rec letter in college admission, teachers were able to evaluate the effectiveness of current grading system in showing students’ learning ability, assist students in selecting their courses, motivate students to take more seriously in school work, and write a well-crafted rec letter for their students.

I shared information on student motivation and engagement as well as the TARGET system. I hope they have a better understanding of student behavior patterns and some of the ways classrooms can be adapted to support student engagement.

We are all living/working in a multicultural environment, but that doesn't mean that intercultural learning happens. I find that intercultural learning is essential if we want to be able to better understand each other, especially in an environment such as school, where we have the opportunity to help young people overcome the prejudices and be able to understand something that is different from their own cultural identity, yet equally worthy.

本次2021上海诺美学校春季教师职业发展大会圆满落幕,希望我们每一位教育人都可以继续怀揣着对教育的初心和情怀,继续携手同行。期待今年十月再次相聚!
