    Basic Pedagogical Skills and Instructional Strategies


    Modern Classroom teaching calls for structured and organized approach to classroom procedures. Generally, the importance of this aspect of instruction is not fully realized even by some of the experienced teachers. Most teachers conduct their teaching on a conventional pattern that does not take into consideration the essential requirements of planned and disciplined ways to deliver the content. They need to be guided on the specific instructional strategies, methodology and overall pedagogical philosophy currently in practice in the modern education. Newly inducted teachers need to initially understand the nature of structured classroom teaching, learning process, and effective teaching methodologies along with many other components of pedagogy. They need to be trained in new pedagogical philosophies, a variety of instructional methodologies, class management, resource development, integration of ICTs and other relevant areas.
