E002 2-Day Workshop on The Teacher's Toolbox
Workshop - 2Days
28 & 29 September 2017, YANGON
Thu & Fri
Speaker: Remus Zhong
Has someone ever asked for your opinion, advice or an explanation on a topic that you are really good at? If you helped that person – I’m sure you did – you imparted your knowledge to him/her. You taught him/her something. That makes you a teacher.
Teachers are found everywhere, not just in schools: Trainers, coaches, experts, leaders, parents... the list goes on.
The question is – how well do you pass information on? This one question determines how good of a teacher you are.
The Teachers’ Toolbox workshop aims to equip any educator with the skills and know-how to plan, prepare and conduct an effective teaching session. As a participant, you will be shown and given opportunities to practise a variety of techniques that will make you an even better educator than you already are.

Three weeks before the workshop, you will be given a set of questions. Your answers will help us to know your area of expertise and to better understand the challenges and needs that you have.
By the end of Day One, you will be tasked to plan a short lesson (5 minutes) about what you currently teach or intend to teach. This short lesson will be presented on Day Two and be an important part of the learning experience.
All participants will receive one complimentary physical copy of The Introvert Teacher.

An introvert himself, Remus appreciates the inner world of his learners, often encouraging them to share their thoughts and experiences at their pace. He is also conscious of his learners’ needs and seeks to understand them in order to better address and meet them.

With a keen interest not only in science but also in the English Language, he has pursued, completed and achieved a distinction in a Diploma in Teaching of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) in early 2015, to further help his students, both local and international, improve their language capabilities and express themselves better through live presentations and public speaking.
Remus has trained in over 90 education institutes in Singapore and has mentored project groups, designed experiments and planned lessons, apart from developing fresh curriculum. His latest project in curriculum development is a series on gemstones and basic gemology. With its launch, he hopes to inculcate interest in the growing gem and jewellery industry in the ASEAN region.
