Whether you are representing language training at a school, college, university or training centre, we believe that all organisations offering language courses should be aiming for educational excellence. The best way to move towards achieving this is to ensure that your organisation is committed to providing top quality teacher training.
It’s true that educational platforms such as eLearning courses, learning management systems (LMS) and learning content management systems (LCMS) are absolutely key to providing effective educational solutions. However, all of these valuable tools need to be paired with brilliant teaching in order to truly provide high quality blended learning opportunities.
Why is continuing teacher training so important for educational excellence?
The reason why continuing teacher training is so important for educational excellence is simple: teachers need to be given regular training opportunities in order to stay at the top of their game.
Even the best teachers will begin to lag behind if they don’t continue to strive for excellence. Because of this, technology and educational specialists need to be mindful of remembering to invest in their teaching staff as well as up-to-the-minute digital teaching tools such as LMS and LCMS technology.
What kind of training should training technology and education specialists undergo?
Education providers who focus on digital educational solutions such as eLearning courses and blended learning programmes have many opportunities for teacher training.
In addition to all the traditional teaching skills, their teachers also have a lot to gain from undergoing training on digital educational solutions. This includes methodologies such as flipped classroom and blended learning. These types of educational programmes have a lot to offer by way of benefits to both the teachers and their students, so this is well worth exploring.
It’s also very important to keep in mind that not all teachers will be immediately comfortable with using the technology and hardware behind educational platforms. In order to achieve educational excellence, it’s important to ensure your organisation’s teacher training programme includes sufficient coverage of how to get the best from tech devices in general, and specifically eLearning software such as learning management systems (LMS) and learning content management systems (LCMS).
LMS/LCMS systems such as Dexway language courses and the CAE specialist language eLearning platform Voluxion Pro offer fantastic resources, but many teachers don’t know just how much scope there is for them to explore. Comprehensive teacher training covering educational platforms, eLearning and blended learning programmes can solve this problem and ensure that everyone gets the best from the software that’s available to them.
How can the Dexway Teacher Pack meet these needs?
Dexway offer a Teacher Pack that is carefully designed to meet all of these needs. Our Teacher Pack methodology promotes and facilitates interaction between teachers and their students. All the knowledge educators gain during this teacher training process can be easily put in to practice right away.
Classroom teacher software is available through Dexway eLearning courses and the CAE LMS/LCMS educational platforms Voluxion Pro. We believe it is the perfect complement for teachers as it allows them to teach without having to worry about managing too much admin.
The Dexway and Voluxion Pro classroom teacher software will organise and structure all the necessary material and resources the teacher needs during face-to-face classes. It will also contain activities and exercises that are tailored to each class level, making it ideal for use during blended learning programmes.
If your teachers aren’t able to offer access to electronic devices to their students during class time, they can also use the Teacher Pack to access printable activities and verbal activities that encourage group conversation and discussions. Finally, the Dexway and Voluxion Pro classroom software Teacher Pack also offers classroom access to magazines, TV and even karaoke!
Dexway analytics and how they make the Teacher Pack even more valuable
There is one significant benefit to the Teacher Pack that we haven’t covered yet: Dexway analytics. This is an advanced feature that allows you to automatically track, monitor and analyse course objectives.
Dexway Analytics is particularly beneficial for tracking student assessment. It breaks down all the results and lets the teacher see at a glance where each individual students’ weak points are, and if there are any areas that the whole group is struggling with.
