Micro Teaching Early Childhood Leadership Homework Answers

Aims:

The objective of this assignment is to allow students to holistically understand the professional development needs of their staff and/or organization. In order to encourage and sustain professional development that is purposeful and authentic, the student will implement the Training and Development Cycle at their organization.

A Training Needs Analysis (TNA) of the staff will need to be carried out and then reviewed by the student. Based on information drawn from the TNA, the student will then design and conduct a 30-minute training session for all or a selected group of staff. The 30-minute training session MUST be recorded. Students are strongly advised to seek feedback from the participants.

To close the cycle, an evaluation of the effectiveness of the training session will also need to be completed.
