Teachers and Training Officers of CARD-MRI Development Institute, Inc. (CMDI) Bay and Tagum City campuses attended the International Teaching Effectiveness Certificate (ITEC) Program on 25 to 29 October 2019 at CMDI Bay.
Professor Catherine Dunn of the English Language Center and Dr. Ranya Khan, Faculty Development Advisor of Humber College Canada facilitated the said program, which aims to improve skills in curriculum development, assessment techniques, and delivery of student-centered teaching. In addition, modules on teaching English language learners in an English-medium environment as well as digital learning technologies were also discussed.
The participants were then required to submit on the last training day their individual E-portfolio narrating their personal experiences, views, and lessons learned from the 5-day intensive hands-on training. All in all, the participants were very grateful for the opportunity to be granted an international teaching certificate and they believe that they are now better equipped in their noble profession of teaching.
