ESU/UITM: CREATIVE TEACHING PROGRAM
ESU Malaysia created and led a short but intensive three session program for 10
university students of UITM, Shah Alam, who are specialising in Education.
These modules were led by Mrs. Gail Featherstone, Ms. Emily Lee (who have over
50 years of combined teaching experience), Datin Shalini Ganendra and UITM
Lecturer - Puan Adzura Eliew.
Content presented creative ways of engaging and developing interest, while maintaining
class control. The basic premise of the sessions was: if students enjoy class, they will
learn more and eventually, have better exam performance. The modules encouraged
participation and discussion amongst all group participants.
The UITM students will have the opportunity to test these techniques through practical
application, at schools throughout the Klang Valley, the following term.
Discussion of classroom organisational challenges, student enthusiasm, control
situations and individual member objectives.
Reviewed suggested ways of class control; raising class participation and interest;
and creative ways of teaching the required curriculum.
The final session covered teaching methods for the SPM 2012 and an extended discussion on analysing Poetry.
