It has a significant difference on my professional performance because its exposure will help me discover new ways of learning and teaching. Besides, it will pave the way for me to cope up with the current modes of teaching and learning.
I have learned many new things besides the content. I realized the importance of intercultural awareness and how it can help to make this world a better place to live for everyone. I feel myself more civilized by practicing reflection before responding. Considering others perspectives made me more positive now dealing with conflicts or misunderstandings. I realized how to make effective online learning. Though I knew about rubrics before but I never tried making one. So the first time I learned making rubrics through this course and especially when I, myself opened the instructor’s rubric for each assignment while writing the answers, I realized how helpful they can be for students.
Collectively, there are many things which changed me personally, just not only content.
This course proved a phenomenal experience in my professional development as an ELT. I am not the same ELT professional eight months’ back, plenty food for thought and immense insight on teaching Grammar is what I take away.
This course has changed the entire dynamic of my teaching practices. I was a kind of traditional teacher having old methodologies, but these two months have changed all of my concepts. I will revisit all my methodologies and will make them learner centered rather than teacher centered.
