MABNA Teaching Method

Teaching method is a set of regular measures that the teacher adopts to guide the activities in order to achieve the educational goals according to the conditions and facilities.

Direct transfer based teaching methods

Memory method: Creating the skill of receiving information correctly and storing it in memory by learners, in order to retrieve and use information in various academic activities. The purpose of this teaching method is to strengthen and keep memory active for communication and thinking. Academic demonstration method (practical skills training): The basis of this method is to observe, practice and use real objects in the educational environment. Learners in this method learn specific skills based on seeing, hearing and practicing individually and collectively.

Subject- Focused teaching methods

  1. Laboratory method: The basis of this method is based on the principles of exploratory learning. This means that nothing is taught directly, but conditions are provided for learners to do research through experiment and discover the answer to the problem.
  2. Exploratory method: An experimental method is an approach through which learners are encouraged to interact with their environment, that is, to explore, manipulate objects and think about the relationships between phenomena.
  3. Project-focused Method: The project usually starts with questions, issues or challenges and allows learners to learn. They also combine their curriculum with research methods and go through the research process, rethink, and prepare for the presentation. In fact, in one session, the role of the teacher is performed in the student area.

Interaction-based teaching methods

  1. Question-and-answer method: The teacher forces the learners to make a subjective effort by asking questions that arouse the curiosity of the learners. The instructor also helps to consciously discover the problem by guiding the learners’ subjective effort so that the result leads to creativity and knowledge acquisition. The purpose of the question and answer method is to recognize and stimulate thinking, strengthen the power of reasoning, use experiences and build confidence in learners.
  2. Role-playing method: The teacher uses this method according to the situation, purpose and subject of the lesson. People who participate in the role-playing method include; Teacher or administrator, learners and observers. In fact, the classroom environment becomes a stage.
  3. Group discussion method: The focus of the group discussion method is discussion and debate. The educator introduces resources for their learners to study and gather information. In this method, learners’ interest and mastery of the content is very important, as a result of which the ability to comment in public is created in the learner. Other goals of this method are to strengthen the power of expression, reasoning, analysis and decision making.
  4. Collaborative learning method (Collaborative): Collaborative teaching method provides an opportunity for learners to experience teamwork, responsibility, social and interaction skills. In fact, they study a common theme in a group and deepen their learning, then share their information in groups, which leads to understanding, comprehension and analysis of the themes. At the end, they review the themes, which is the highest level of learning.

Individual training methods

  1. Individual training prescribed: The learner is obliged to work individually on the sections assigned to him. When a section is finished, he must answer the test attached to that section, and if the result of his performance in the test is satisfactory, he will be directed to the next section to continue the activities.
  2. Individual computer-based training: Face-to-face training takes place, then online learning is achieved in the context of cyberspace, and in online classes, discussion and interaction between the teacher and the learner is created.

Today, with the introduction of technology into the field of education, many techniques, including assessment methods, have undergone changes. One of these assessment methods is alternative methods in virtual training.

Types of alternative assessment methods in virtual training

Alternative individual / theoretical evaluations

  • Controlled Oral Testing Technique: A live oral presentation performed by learners. In this way, the instructor asks all students to be active on the platform at a specific time and date. The teacher then asks his questions orally.
  • Asynchronous presentation technique (recorded): Presentation of video or audio recording of answering questions by learners. In this way, topics and questions are identified in advance.
  • Short-answer question technique: In such questions, learners’ answers are completely predetermined. In fact, the instructor prepares questions in advance with short answers and, by asking questions, evaluates the learners on the basis of grading.
  • Response test technique: This method is very common. A number of questions are given to the learners, after which they are asked to choose a number of questions to answer based on their own interests and knowledge and to answer them within a certain period of time.
  • Infographic technique: Infographics are a combination of graphics and information that are characterized by movement and dynamism in the presentation of content.
  • Interactive video technique: Learners can use interactive videos to present their assignments. The topic of the interactive videos is chosen by the tutor and shared with other learners.
  • Flashcard technique: A combination of graphics and a short text
  • Techniques of educational games: They are learning contents that are provided by the teacher to the learners, in fact, they are the same answers provided by the learners to the teacher that are only played and time is given to the contents.
  • Questioning technique: In this method, the teacher asks the learners to ask questions instead of answering the teacher’s own questions. “Socrates” used questioning in teaching and evaluating his students.

Alternative individual / experimental evaluations

  • Case Study Technique: The instructor provides the learners with a written case and asks them to think about it and give their opinions.
  • Direct observation technique: The instructor asks the learners to write a report of their observations to the instructor on what they observe.

Alternative group evaluations

  • Think-Pair-Share Technique: A tool for discussing and sharing information. The instructor asks the learners to think about the topic or question for 2 minutes. The two learners are paired by the instructor and talk about the topic in a private chat on the platform in question. Learners share the results of their group discussions in the platform’s public chat. Finally, the instructor rates each group’s shared results.
  • One-Question Quiz Technique: The teacher in the middle of the class or at the end of the class asks a question from the lessons presented in class and asks learners to provide a short one-minute answer.
  • Technique 1-2-3: It is a method that is usually presented at the end of the lesson and students are asked in the form of three questions about what they have learned. Question 1: What have you learned from today’s lesson? Question 2: What else would you like to learn next? Question 3: What questions do you have about today’s lesson?
