In order to improve the theoretical understanding and professional ability of teachers in our kindergarten, We invited professional lecturers from the Chinese Course Center to conduct professional training for us on the 15th November with the two key focus areas on science and health. The training was based on educational concepts and is aimed at encouraging exploratory learning and advocating fun through sports.
During the training, the lecturer gave an in-depth explanation on the different types of collective teaching activities in the field of science, the basic process of scientific inquiry for children, activities to share health knowledge, and the standardised process of teaching physical education, enabling our teachers to have a better understanding of the curriculum. Teachers listened carefully, took detailed notes, spoke enthusiastically, put forward their own concerns on the educational process, and discussed their own unique views on the curriculum with the lecturer. The whole training process incorporated both theory and practical, and our teachers' showed a lot of enthusiasm.
The training ended with long and meaningful discussions between our teachers. We have gained a lot of new educational understanding from the training. We learned the importance of excellent teaching activities for children for their development and at the same time, we have gained knowledge on how to introduce such activities into the curriculum. The three key areas discussed were; teaching methods, choosing suitable teaching aids and guiding the children.
Our teaching team is committed and focused to expand their knowledge for the improvement of the children’s education.
