The Madrassah Centre of Excellence (MCE) of the World Federation in collaboration with the Africa Federation Tabligh Board (AFTab) organized and conducted four Teacher’s Development Programs – Neuro Psychology of Learning for 71 Madrassah Teachers from the Jamaats of Arusha, Dar es Salaam, Mwanza and Moshi.
The Programs were conducted in Dar es Salaam from 9th to 12th January 2016 (Two Sessions of two days) and facilitated by the MCE Neuro – Psychology of Learning Facilitators Br. Shabbirhussein Khalfan, Sister Shama Dewji and Sister Shaida Abdulrasul.
Two other similar Sessions were held in Arusha from 16th to 19th January 2016 which were facilitated by Br. Shabbirhussein Khalfan, Sister Shama Dewji, Sister Tahera Shivji and Sister Mubina Sumar.

Objectives of the Teacher Development Program - Neuropsychology of Learning:
At the end of the program, participants: 

  • Experienced a comprehensive self-assessment covering key psychological frameworks involved in learning. 
  • Reviewed in detail the learning needs, energies and thinking approaches for different students. 
  • Identified the inherent strengths and challenges they might face as teachers based on their needs, energy and thinking approach. 
  • Learned how to adapt their style to teach more effectively. 
  • Established an action plan to apply these skills and techniques in everyday situations. 
  • The key for the success of the Program is to put into practice what has been learnt.


Benefits of application of Neuropsychological approaches in Academic learning:

  • It supports students to improve their learning and attain higher retention levels. 
  • It facilitates effective learning activities that enable higher engagement and involvement in the learning experience. 
  • It builds a two-way learning relationship between the teacher and the student that ensures student development is at the level of the student taking into account different stages of the child’s development.   
  • It enables the teachers to ensure the right processes are used for the different types of content being learnt in the madrasah and ensure it is child specific.  
  • It helps the teacher to avoid “labeling” learners by showing greater understanding of the child’s personality in the learning process.  It gives the teacher the ability to make constructive use of differences and capitalize on all talents.
