The Madrasah Centre of Excellence (MCE) in collaboration with Africa Federation Tabligh Board (AFTab) as part of the Teacher’s Development Program held a two day Teacher’s Skills Programme and also conducted a one day Micro Teach in Dar es Salaam in March 2015, in Mombasa in May 2015 and in July 2015 in Nairobi.

A total of 72 teachers from all three Madaris, namely Jaffery Academy of Mombasa and Nairobi and Al Muntazir Schools of Dar es Salaam attended the programs.

The series of programs were conducted by Sayyid Aliraza Naqvi who has completed his cert ED (PTTLS, DTTLS CTTLS) and is currently completing his Master’s in Education in the U.K. The training program was facilitated jointly by the World Federation and Africa Federation.

The Modules included: 

  • Role and Responsibility of a Madrasah Teacher
  • Lesson Planning and Planning Skills
  • Learning and Reflective Practice

Participants also had the opportunity to practice the skills learnt in the first two days and get feedback from peers as well as facilitators.

A Micro-teach lesson for the Teachers was also held in Dar es Salaam in July 2015.  Similar program are planned for Mombasa and Nairobi before the end of this year.

The Micro Teach Session included:

  • Debrief session and sharing of experiences after the first Micro-teach. The teachers were allocated into groups of 4-6 and were given the opportunity to teach on any topic they had previously taught to a batch of students (other teachers) and an observer who was also one of the participants.
  • A debrief session was conducted to discuss general feedback from observations made and further tips regarding teacher-student relationship.

The objective of this program is to increase skills of the teachers, and to shift their attitudes and behaviors so that they may be better able to support the learning of the students.

Comments from the Participants: 

  • The module was very helpful to me, so much to learn and correct the mistakes I was doing in the classroom. This is a very inspirational module!
  • Excellent experience! Micro-teaching made me apply all the concepts I learned instead of just keeping the information. Helped me improve my skills and gave me hope to further better myself.
  • Programs of this type should be a must for every teacher. I have benefitted a lot. 
  • Sayyid Aliraza is an amazing facilitator, very approachable and really inspiring.

The long-term plan and objective is to provide every teacher who has been trained with the Teacher Skills, five sessions of Micro-teaching experience.
