ACCA to train teachers for ‘new normal’ in the post-pandemic scenario
KARACHI: Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) is organising a free of cost teacher training workshop to support the country’s educators to be better prepared to teach more effectively in a post-pandemic ‘New Normal’ as they return to in-person teaching in a highly transformed world.
Themed ‘Getting ready to teach in the ‘New Normal’ – Mastering the post-pandemic pedagogy’, the workshop will include exclusive insights into how teachers can prepare themselves for a blended future of education, learn new skills and tools to enhance learning experience of the students, devise comprehensive assessment techniques, and disseminate learning and advice that prepares students for the future workplace, said a press release issued on Wednesday.
ACCA’s Marketing Communications Manager, Rashid Khan said the pandemic is a wake-up call of monumental proportions to educators around the world, who must radically rethink a strategy of constantly evolving according to the needs and ever-changing behaviours of learners and keep imagining the ‘next normal’.
He said, “Apart from ACCA’s commitment to promoting future-thinking and supporting our partners with shaping a sustainable, inclusive future for all, we continue to hold capacity building sessions to help organisations with their future-readiness and resilience against the uncertainties of future.”
Featuring contributions from internationally renowned trainers joining from the United Kingdom, the United Arab Emirates, and Pakistan, the workshop is particularly designed for individuals involved in the profession of teaching, curriculum design, and career counselling.
Paul Kirkwood, Sarah Corcoran, Fazeela Gopalani, Sajjeed Aslam, Hammad Azim and Mehwish Kareem are among the learned trainers. The training will be delivered online on 29 September between 2:00pm and 06:30pm. The training is open for all educators in Pakistan and registrations are currently open. – TLTP
