Tools to make teaching and training 

more effective

Description and main aims

Draft proposed program

Anyone can speak, but those who speak well have a distinct advantage. Knowing what to say, when and how to say it, and who to say it to can go a long way in accomplishing any goal. However, communication does not consist solely of speech and sounds. Communication also includes things like listening, body language, cultural awareness, and general social skills.

The Most Important Part of Communication
There are some people who are constantly talking, but they never stop and listen. As a general rule, such people are not very good communicators because they fail to understand that are two parties involved in every act of communication. The most important part of communication is listening, not talking. An effective communication strategy should be based on feedback from the person to whom the message is directed. In addition, the strategy should include tips and techniques for good listening, and encourage behaviors like active listening.

Teaching is based on communication, and a teacher who communicates effectively with his/her students is a great teacher. Communication in classrooms is more complex and unpredictable than in many other situations. As a teacher, understanding the unique features and functions of communication in the classroom is very important. Communication strategies for teachers can help improve the parent teacher relationship. They can also take a mediocre teacher and make him/her into every student’s favorite. Even in atypical cases, such as when working with a learning disabled child, communication strategies for teachers can help foster a better bond between the teacher and student.

However, communication strategies for teachers extend beyond the classroom, and can be applied to parents as well.

Main aims: Improve your teaching style Using Visual Aids, Talking and Listening, Communicating Positively with Parents, Listening to Parents, Learning Disabled Children
