Shedding light on the blind spots of teaching and teacher development
This paper starts by reinstating the often forgotten fact that any worthwhile teaching act should be geared towards learning. It then proceeds to show the importance of training and developing staff from the multiple angles of teacher knowledge, teaching skills, and teacher values and attitudes, before highlighting the gains this would make in teaching and learning quality, as well as empowerment of teachers and added value for their institution. Finally, based on the presenter’s experience, the paper offers ideas towards raising wider awareness and adoption of practices likely to promote training and professional development for teachers of English in the Sudanese higher education context.
