Teachers share knowledge

UNFOLDING new knowledge for improvement of educational practice was the main focus of a conference for teachers in the Western Division.

Hosted by the Fiji National University Lautoka Campus, the Education Conference boasted a number of seminars led by renowned academics in the country.

Education permanent secretary Dr Brij Lal said the ministry gave approval for the conference so that practising teachers could be part of the conference to share their views with other educationists.

"This is where they can make a positive contribution to teacher training and to the content in teacher education. I wanted to be part of the conference because this is where the changes will take place," he said.

He said every school in the country had a representative to ensure that information gathered and shared at the conference was taken back to their institutions.

"We want them to go back and be able to share what they have learned with their own teachers and be able to take back ways they can improve how they teach in the classroom."
