Improving Effectiveness. Suggestions for TAFE Teachers.
Hall, William C.; Are, Linda
This guide suggests approaches that new and experienced Technical and Further Education (TAFE) teachers may find useful in answering questions that may lead to improvement in their teaching effectiveness. In the first part of the guide, such questions are discussed, together with possible strategies for answering them and useful reference texts. Questions were supplied by full-time college teachers, who were asked to identify the indicators of effective teaching. Questions are grouped under five headings: contextual, teaching, administration/management, professional matters, and industry links. A bibliography lists 68 references. Appendixes in the second part of the guide include information on designing and administering questionnaires and a sample self-evaluation questionnaire; different ways of seating groups; a time analysis chart; New South Wales Department of TAFE teacher evaluation forms; an example of an agenda; a list of National Industry Training Committees; a South Australian sample self-appraisal of teaching; and a brochure about the TAFE National Clearinghouse vocational education and training database.
