Owerri, 4th August, 2018, Dr. Stella Adagiri and her team of experts recently organised an intensive two-days capacity building session for teachers in Pearville School Awu Owerri, Imo State. Dr. Stella believes that collaboration, creativity, critical thinking and sharing best practices amongst schools, through effective communication are fundamental to school improvement and effective learning in the 21st century. This can be achieved through effective, innovative and relevant continuous professional development programs.
The proprietor of the school, Mrs. Pearl Onukwugha, in her effort to improve the quality of education by building the capacity of her teachers, chose to partner with Portsbridge Educational Services to provide bespoke CDP for them on, “Differentiation and promoting Active Learning”, “Effective and Efficient Teachers, establishing Authority, Discipline and Coping with Learning”, “Stem and Its Classroom Application”.
All the segments were interactive as participants received clarity on many vague notions of individual learning speed of students. The participants were able to create different instructional materials and were also led through practical approaches to solving mathematical problems in the classroom. At the end, the two hours allocated to each facilitator had to be extended as participants yearned for more.
