WHAT IS THE TOTAL TEACHER PROGRAM?

The TOTAL Teacher Program is a unique professional development program created and piloted by Lingnan University in early 2016. It helps teachers to ‘Transform Outcomes Through Action Learning’ in the classroom. Over one semester, teachers apply action research techniques in their classrooms in order to help students better attain selected course learning outcomes. This involves the gathering of structured student feedback as well as focused, action-oriented reflection on teaching effectiveness. The aim is not only to finetune teaching techniques, but to train teachers how to examine and transform their own teaching practice in the long term based on student feedback, teacher reflection and evidence of students’ work.


The pilot program was so successful that the founding teachers were awarded the ‘Outstanding Contribution to Outcomes-Based Education Award’ 2015-16 and featured in CAOBE Newsletter #8. If you are interested in finding out more about this Program, please read the FAQs
