Teacher Education & Development

The quality of education and effectiveness of an approach in characterizing an individual in the complex society require a teacher who is well equipped with skills, knowledge and commitment to facilitate and organize the learning process. Besides technical competence, the program learning outcome from GMI technical training demands one to be self-reliant, versatile and more importantly to be a lifelong learner which is highly needed in the rapid changes of technology environment or workplace. Consequently, the educators must be equipped with teacher education so that they are able to perform their tasks effectively and ultimately to be a self-directed teacher.
