Innovative Methods of Teaching

We think of the effective teachers we have had


over the years with a sense of recognition, but
those who have touched our humanity we
remember with a deep sense of gratitude.
Dr.V.S.Damodharan and Mr.V.Rengarajan
Faculty, Business Studies Department,
Higher College of Technology
Sultanate of Oman

We think too much about effective methods of teaching


and not enough about effective methods of learning.
ABSTRACT/PURPOSE
Evaluate traditional methods of teaching as well as
multimedia teaching methods
Teaching must include two major components
sending and receiving information
Any communication methods that serve this
purpose without destroying the objective could be
considered as innovative methods of teaching.
Benefits of innovative methods
Improve Learning process
Strengthen governance
IMPORTANCE OF EDUCATION
All religions attaches great importance to knowledge
and education.
When the Qur'an began to be revealed, the first word of
its first verse was 'Iqra' that is, read.
A scholar (alim) is accorded great respect in the
hadith.
Education is the manifestation of perfection already in
man (Swami Vivekananda)
They are not students of our generation, where they sit
down and listen. I think things have changed now; they
want to explore, cut and paste.
ANALYSIS OF TRADITIONAL
METHOD OF TEACHING
Pre-technology education context, the teacher is the
sender or the source.

The educational material is the information or


message.

The student is the receiver of the information.

The delivery medium


chalk-and- talk method
overhead projector (OHP) transparencies.

In such a lecture students assume a purely passive


role and their concentration fades off after 15-20
minutes.
LIMITATIONS
Teaching in classroom using chalk and talk is one
way flow of information
Teachers often continuously talk for an hour without
knowing students response and feedback.
The material presented is only based on lecturer notes
and textbooks.
There is insufficient interaction with students in
classroom.
More emphasis has been given on theory without any
practical and real life time situations.
Learning from memorization but not understanding.
Innovative Methods of Teaching

I hear and I forget.


I see and I believe.
I do and I understand.

mind.- Winston Churchill

TEACHING WITH SENSE OF
HUMOUR
Laughter is a natural, universal phenomenon, with
beneficial effects, both physical and psychological.
Everyone loves a teacher with an infectious
sense of humor.

Z TO A APPROACH
This approach attempts to explain the application part of
a particular concept first.

Strengths
Makes a particular concept clear
Students develop interest to know exactly the concept.
Creates long lasting memory/correlation of a concept.

Weaknesses
Take quite long time for a teacher to introduce a
concept
Initial difficulty in understanding a particular concept
will be encountered.

INNOVATIVE METHODS
TEACHER THE GREATEST
INNOVATOR
Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty.
Anyone who keeps learning stays young.

To teach is to learn twice

Teachers should guide without dictating, and participate without


dominating

The critical factor is not class size but rather the nature of the
teaching as it affects learning.

LEARNING NEVER ENDS
