Should teachers be competitive?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Roland Baggott Jan 21, 2013. 9 Replies

Colin Chaplin replied to Ellie Nelson's discussion AUTISM WITH THE CLASSROOM- CAN IT HAVE A DETRIMENTAL EFFECT ON OTHER LEARNERS?
"Yes, as 'tolerance' of other students might be tested in times of stress.  The division of time by the tutor would have to be perfect."

Colin Chaplin replied to Emma Breen's discussion What do you think the key factors that have an effect on a learners’ behaviour in level 3, post 16 education are?
"Hi Emma, Firstly I would say (good and bad) influential behaviour of close friends, secondly, having little respect for the staff (perhaps home life affects this) and thirdly, their experience of education has been such that what is considered…"

Effie Fotaki replied to Colin Chaplin's discussion Is a more 'successful' artist a better arts teacher?
"This is an interesting topic, but you need to define what an artistic 'all-rounder' is... It could be a person that has a wide and varied view and notion about arts, which to me translates to art theorists. Otherwise I haven't…"

Nader A Batayeh replied to Colin Chaplin's discussion Is a more 'successful' artist a better arts teacher?
"I dont think so. Art teachers in general dont necessarily have to be successful ( if that means they sold many of their works) in order to be great at instructing others of his/her processes. They must be good communicators, have a passion for what…"

Roland Baggott replied to Colin Chaplin's discussion Should teachers be competitive?
"Hi Colin, I observed a 'summative assessment revision' lesson where the teacher split the group into pairs and tasked them with researching and making 6 multichoice questions on the subject of H&S (not exactly an exciting subject)…"

David Antrobus replied to Colin Chaplin's discussion Should teachers be competitive?
"Hi Colin, to be honest. In all competitions there are winners and losers and this is a lesson worth learning but in my classroom I would prefer an environment where everyone feels they are in a safe place to learn and an inclusive situation exists.…"

Colin Chaplin replied to Gina Allen's discussion Have the Germans got a point??
"Hi Gina, For certain ages groups that seems like an excellent idea.  BUT, what about the FE/HE area, where clubbing and competing in late night vomiting competitions are SO important!!!?  I suppose it would take time to filter in, and…"

Colin Chaplin replied to Christopher Heath's discussion Transfer of learning in sport
"Hi Chris Jax's reply is brilliant.  I assume your students are relatively young, so to try and get them to contemplate a further career before they've had the first may be difficult!!?  Perhaps by using examples of those who…"

Ellie Nelson replied to Colin Chaplin's discussion Is a more 'successful' artist a better arts teacher?
"Aspirate is a use of breath Colin! Particularly on words that shouldn't contain much like plosive consonants such as B and D hope this helps you to release your inner singer! ;-) x"

Colin Chaplin replied to Laura Withers's discussion Reflective Practice
"Hi Laura, It will happen naturally.  As Jacqueline has said, it can be simply a notebook (which is with you ALL the time) and a pencil.  I have no idea how old you are, but you WILL find the most important moments will stay with you and…"

Colin Chaplin replied to Hannah Garnham's discussion Strategies to combat nerves
"Hi Hannah, It is just like acting, which has already been said below.  But I also have another way of looking at it.  Just think about how many people know you. And how they know you.  You are a different person to different groups…"

Colin Chaplin replied to David Antrobus's discussion Breaking the mold.
"Hi Dave, Wish I knew what I wanted to do at school leaving time!  I could draw a bit, so it was art school for me, but I also wanted to sell cars!!  Now, at my age, I've been lucky enough to find my 'element', return to get…"

Colin Chaplin replied to Lissa's discussion Lack of respect from learners
"Hi Melissa, This sounds interesting!  How old are they? Do they see your sessions purely as extra rehearsal time? And, do they think they know it all, or at least, do they think they know more than you?  If this is the case, then I would…"

Colin Chaplin replied to Tracy brookes's discussion Learning barriers...
"Hi T, Does this person have an LSP? If so, perhaps regular discussions with the LSP would help to reinforce the learning, or simply, set up regular meeting with yourself, your mentor/main tutor, the LSP and the student?  These could be…"

Colin Chaplin replied to Colin Chaplin's discussion Is a more 'successful' artist a better arts teacher?
"Hi Lucy, Thank you for your reply.  I like your point about a successful artist having other equally qualified contacts to call upon for workshops etc.  On another point, artists are notoriously hopeless at self promotion.  We find…"

Andrea Thompson replied to Colin Chaplin's discussion Is a more 'successful' artist a better arts teacher?
"Yeah I found this a good point, as you don't always want to show your vulnerable side to someone who's done well, maybe afraid to explore and experiment incase you might not do as well as you want to, just sticking to your comfort zones…"

Colin Chaplin replied to Colin Chaplin's discussion Is a more 'successful' artist a better arts teacher?
"Hi Sylwia, Thank you for your reply.  I agree with you, and your point of view.  it is obvious that you have a very 'visual arts' background and way of thinking...  You are right in what you say, but the student would also…"
