These awards will be presented on 25th Jan 2016, at a special ceremony in Bangalore. With pressures to plan, perform, and manage, teachers often attend less to the learning of individual students. Today, the world is in the midst of extraordinary breakthroughs in scientific work on the mind, processes of thinking - learning and the development of competence. Therefore, teaching today is a complex endeavour. It makes several, often conflicting demands on the teacher – the ever increasing demand for quality education, sound knowledge of subject matter; methods for assessment, modes for differentiated instruction; enthusiasm, a caring attitude, and a love for learning; a competence in classroom management techniques. With all these qualities required, it's no wonder that it's hard to find good teachers.
And the good teachers we find must be celebrated!!
TAFIT accordingly aims to recognize and acknowledge great ideas tried by teachers in their classrooms. We are looking out for teachers who demonstrate exceptional subject knowledge, inspiring teaching methodologies, innovative use of technology, assessment and authentic pupil learning.
We invite you to nominate a maximum of two teachers from your school for TAFIT. Do find attached further details and eligibility criteria for selection. This year we are requesting for all teachers to send their applications and submission of evidence on CDs or DVDs to encourage teachers to use technology to showcase their professional competence.
