Training pre-service teachers in the lifelong learning sector - the challenges
Cloud created by:

Training pre-service teachers in the lifelong learning sector is challenging - inexperienced ones are overwhelmed and experienced ones are blasé. HE teachers see nothing wrong in delivering long lectures. FE teachers want to focus on classroom management - just get the students to behave, never mind the learning. ACL teachers feel very responsible for their learners - nurturing.
As their teacher educator I have to be constantly creative - my focus is 50% on knowledge and skills and 50% on attitude.
If you also train teachers in this sector - please share your experiences and good practices.
