The National Research Institute, in partnership with Exxon Mobil PNG, organized a one-day workshop for teachers in the LNG project affected areas.
Teachers from ten schools in the Hiri Rural LLG were selected to take part in the Action Research project, which aims to provide quality teaching skills, to empower teachers.
This one day project funded by Exxon Mobil, and facilitated by the National Research Institute, will provide an avenue to empower and enable teachers on reflective teaching, and using research evidence to improve teaching.
Research on effective schools has shown that the greatest influences on student achievement are the teachers, and the quality of teaching that takes place in the classroom.
Action research is a school-based, teacher-centered professional learning approach, for empowering teachers to research their practice and analyze their teacher beliefs.
The focus of this project is to improve the quality of teaching and student achievement in schools located in the LNG project impacted areas.
After the project, teachers will be equipped with essential knowledge, skills and experience of doing research.
This initiative will strengthen and amplify the efforts already made by the National Department of Education, and stakeholders including Exxon Mobil
e PNG, who is providing the funding to support the quality of teaching and learning in schools.
