T.Ed. Plus: Good to Great Teachers
T. Ed. Plus, a professional development program for in-service teachers, is designed to enable teachers to go beyond their certification and to become the best professionals they can be. It is entrenched in the belief that only a reflective teacher has the capability to create a nurturing learning environment for her students. And only in an environment free from fear can a healthy life-long relationship with learning be built. T. Ed Plus aims to help teachers reconnect with themselves, their purpose and also equip them with the tools and strategies to transform their classrooms into joyful learning spaces. This will enable teachers to create classrooms where students’ voice is valued and students are fully immersed in real and relevant learning, allowing them to achieve their highest potential.

Who is it for?
An opportunity to self-reflect about the persons we’ve become in the course of our lives – a chance to refocus our lens inwards instead of outwards – and a chance to imagine the implications of all of these in a classroom: these are my major thoughts when I reflect about the program.
IAAT has partnered with some of the leading thought leaders and researchers from around the Globe. A truly symbiotic relationship, both parties learn from each other and there is a sharing of best practices, frameworks and knowledge.
