Different strokes for different folks!

Each one of us is different. We learn differently, interact with those around differently and do things at our own pace as well. Personality-based learning provides an opportunity for teachers to learn more about your own traits, what makes you tick, and how you can adapt your style to match that of your students.
What’s in it for me as a teacher?
Are you an introvert and found the task of socializing daunting? Are you the type of person who gets a job done at all costs but are abrasive to those around you?
As a teacher, it is very useful to have self-awareness, recognize your personality type, and how you can flex your style when dealing with others. This becomes doubly more important when you consider that students have their own learning styles and every student responds to a different stimulus. By being aware of the different personality types, teachers are able to tailor their teaching methods to ensure that students are learning in the most effective way with the appropriate amount of information. Students will be more attentive as well as retain more information when learning through methods most suitable to them.
How does it look?
As a pre-cursor to the workshop, teachers are encouraged to take an online personality development test. During the workshop, teachers are divided into four groups – Pioneer, Guardian, Driver and Integrator. Each group’s individual traits and characteristics are described in a group exercise along with a breakdown of what holds their attention and what turns them off.
Finally, every group is presented with a hypothetical scenario based on real life teaching challenges and how each group needs to adapt to the situation at hand.
Teachers are able to clearly gauge their personality types and those of their students, and learn how to adapt their teaching styles in their classrooms every day. Teachers will also be able to take with them brochures indicating the key traits of the different personalities.
