Lagos State Teaching Service Commission (TESCOM) has equipped teachers in the cadres of Assistant Chief Education Officer, level 13, and Chief Education Officer, level 14 with Emerging Trends and Practices in Learning and Development in Public Schools.
The two-day training programme came up between Sept. 6 and 7 at the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI).
The event was chaired by the Permanent Secretary, Mrs Olubukola Ajibola Abidakun of TESCOM, represented by Mr Adewale Aina, and was organised by TESCOM in collaboration with HT-Limited.
According to Aina, TESCOM set out to train levels 13 and 14 officers to upgrade them to the administrative level and be able to impart knowledge to students in a bid to learn from simple to complex.
The training which was broken into six sessions, had the first session, entitled Gamification, explains how participants can use games to achieve strategic planning, and different methods of teaching to understand individual differences in students in the classroom.
The second session entitled Project-Based Learning (PBL), delivered by Mrs Bunmi Oguntuase, focused on problem-solving through projects, while the third session centred on personal finance.
On day 2, Mr. Ope Amusan delivered a lecture entitled Playful Learning Landscapes (PPL). He highlighted that learning is a continuous process and that what may not be achieved in the early stage of life can still be accomplished later.
The second training on day 2 was facilitated by Mrs Mobolaji Dawodu who spoke on Competency-Based Learning (CBL) which focuses on mastering specific skills, where he explained that teachers should shift from time-based learning to mastery-based learning.
The third lecture by Mrs Adedeji Morufu was on role reversal where the teacher gives part of his or her roles to students.
Speaking on the event, Mrs Aderonke Faleye, a participant from Isheri Senior Grammar School, appreciated Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and TESCOM, as well as HT Limited for organizing the training for teachers on Grade levels 13 and 14 to expand their knowledge.
