The National Awqaf Foundation of South Africa (Awqaf SA) in partnership with H2 Advisory will be hosting training workshops for educators, which aims to introduce them to innovative techniques to improve the delivery of classroom lessons.
Educators and school managers will be introduced to the pioneering research of education specialist, Carl Garner, who has written several books on the ‘How2Teach,’ ‘How2Learn’ and ‘Teach2Learn’ concepts. The H2 Advisory developed modules empowers teachers to better support and motivate their students and moves away from the traditional techniques of repetitive, “teacher talk and chalk” learning methods to critical, analytical, and problem solving skills.
“The workshop will attempt to highlight a need for educational change,” Awqaf CEO Zeinoul Abedien Cajee explained. “It will introduce educators and school managers to Learning Powers and how these can be implemented in the modern curriculum, which will empower student learning, especially thinking skills, and promote positive behaviour.”
The workshops have been endorsed by the Association of Muslim Schools (AMS), host schools, and the United Ulama Council of South Africa. All Educators are welcome. Below is the list of scheduled events:
Carl Garner: Short Bio
Carl Garner started the H2 Advisory educational company with a vision to change education across the world.
He has been developing people for over 20 years and after his retirement at the age of 39 he started to write development books and educational stories for children. Br Carl has been a Principal, Superintendent and Director of Education. In that time, his frustration at the educational system moved him to start leading change. Carl Garner states that change cannot just be undertaken from one angle and for true change to take place one has to fully understand all the stakeholders
The link below was a video created by parents of one of his former schools and clearly demonstrates the profound affect he has had on the students and parents alike.
