HKBU student wins Gold Award in Outstanding Prospective Teachers Election

浸大學生勇奪準教師金獎

Lin Yan-ping (Chinese Language and Literature, Year 4, and Postgraduate Diploma in Education) won the Gold Award at the Outstanding Prospective Teachers Election organised by the Hong Kong Prospective Teachers’ Association.
 
In the election, every candidate had to submit a number of documents in the first round, such as a resume and a lesson plan.  Yan-ping handed in one of her HKBU class works. “I learned from HKBU how to design a comprehensive lesson plan, such as finding suitable documents, designing learning objectives and tools, and how to inspire students’ thinking. I can enter the second round with my class work, which has fully proved that HKBU has outstanding teaching and learning standards.”
 
In the second round, the candidates had to give a pilot lesson and answer questions raised by two secondary school principals. Yan-ping said that she enjoyed the pilot lesson, especially the interesting interaction with the two “students”.
 
Yan-ping has been working as an intern teacher and has had to handle a student with a bad attitude problem. After holding discussions and setting rules, the student’s attitude improved significantly, which gave her huge satisfaction. She admitted that at one time she felt anxious, as the workload was heavy and she wondered whether she was asking too much of herself.  However she was fortunate in receiving support and advice from colleagues, and now she has overcome the difficulties and enjoys teaching. She plans to be a teacher upon graduation so that she can put into practice what she has learnt in her studies. 
 

林燕萍(中國語言文學系四年級、教育文憑)在香港準教師協會舉辦的「香港傑出準教師選舉」中,榮獲「傑出準教師金獎」。
 
在選舉第一階段,參加者須先呈交個人履歷、教案等,燕萍坦言只是以課堂功課作為參選教案,因為「浸大讓我學懂如何設計完備教案,例如尋找適當文獻、教學目標、工具、啟發學生思考等。我利用日常功課進入第二輪比賽,正正反映了浸大卓越的教學水平。」燕萍在第二階段需要試教,並接受兩位校長的提問。她表示,十分享受當中過程,尤其與「學生」互動的經驗,更是有趣。
 
現時擔任實習教師的燕萍,亦遇到態度惡劣的學生,後來她與學生討論及約法三章,成功令學生改善壞習慣,令她十分滿足。她不諱言,教師的工作擔子不輕,加上對自己要求過高,曾經感到焦慮,幸好得到同事的鼓勵及提點,現已適應下來,享受教學。即將畢業的她,希望可以覓得教席,實踐所學。
