Self-Assessment for Teachers of Health Workers. How to Be a Better Teacher. WHO Offset Publication No. 68.
Rotem, Arie; Abbatt, Fred R.
Teaching is seen as comprising six main functions: planning, communicating, providing resources, counselling, assessing, and continuing self-education. An analysis is presented of what is involved in each of these functions, and a checklist is provided to help teachers evaluate themselves. The chapters of this book are devoted to detailed discussions of each of these functions and their component activities, each of which is broken down into specific tasks. Performance checklists accompany each chapter. Advice is given on how to obtain pertinent information, such as how to find out what students are like when making a pre-course assessment of their knowledge and abilities. These self-assessment procedures can be supplemented by obtaining feedback from students and by consulting colleagues. The final chapter provides a number of evaluation instruments in the form of questionnaires that can be filled in by students or colleagues. (JD)
