Teaching Practice: A Comparative Experience of USP and University of Deusto, Spain
Ms Kusum Prakash,
School of Education,
The University of the South Pacific.
There is a need for highly effective teachers in every classroom. This requires that the teacher education system develops a comprehensive and effective teacher training programme and professional development support to maintain and develop it. Teacher training across the world has the same vision: to train quality teachers for the current society. Keeping this in mind I accepted a month’s training leave to be attached to the University of Deusto in Spain to understudy their teaching practice programme. The objective of my stay was to learn how this university implements its practicum and if we can use some of their ideas that would seem workable at the USP.
