Super Teaching

Even teachers need motivation from time to time. Recognising the need for teachers to be motivated and keeping a high morale especially needed when teaching the youths of this country the Sultan Omar Ali saifuddein collage held a one day seminar and workshop entitle Super teachers.

The workshop and seminar was conducted by Dr Shukri Abdullah from Malaysia, who had asked the teachers why they had become teachers and educators in the first place. Following of which, he asked the teachers who was their own memorable teachers who had taught them long ago as well as their favourite teacher and why.

He said that teaching as a profession has its own rewards, and those rewards are immeasurable, and invaluable, those students who teachers have taught will always remember their teachers contributions and help. They will always remember the teachings, their wisdom and their contribution to help them become who they are today.

Teachers need to be more effective in teaching students, and they need to be smart in educating the students of today. They must also be flexible and dynamic in their way of teaching so that the students will be able to retain the information given to them.

He had talked about the principal to educating children so that they may be successful in their studies. He also talked about how to overcome obsticales that are most common in the teaching practice.

However Dr Shurkri’s point was driven home when he had presented a short film about how students who are considered the worst in the state was able to change and succeed not only in their studies but also in life, thanks to the dedication and commitment of their teachers.

Some teachers were in tears after watching the film. It shows that the impact of teachers on students lives are almost permanent. Teachers roles goes beyond that of educators, they are role models, they are friends and they are idols of which students look up to.

Their teachers who they respect and love will always be in their hearts, and will be remembered always. They are the pivot which moulds the lives of the students, and for that they are important in raising the students knowledge, understanding and commitment.

The dedication of teachers are reflected in the success of the students. For teachers of SOAS Collage, the dedication and commitment which they have shown the students thus far, deserve praise, yet they still have much to improve and through the motivation courses, they are spirits are revitalised and they once again teach with new vigour and full of heart.
