2 Dr.V.S.Damodharan and Mr.V.Rengarajan Faculty, Business Studies Department,Higher College of TechnologySultanate of OmanWe think too much about effective methods of teaching and not enough about effective methods of learning.
3 ABSTRACT/PURPOSEEvaluate traditional methods of teaching as well as multimedia teaching methodsTeaching must include two major components sending and receiving informationAny communication methods that serve this purpose without destroying the objective could be considered as innovative methods of teaching.Benefits of innovative methodsImprove Learning processStrengthen governance
4 IMPORTANCE OF EDUCATION All religions attaches great importance to knowledge and education.When the Qur'an began to be revealed, the first word of its first verse was 'Iqra' that is, read.A scholar (alim) is accorded great respect in the hadith.“Education is the manifestation of perfection already in man” – (Swami Vivekananda)They are not students of our generation, where they sit down and listen. I think things have changed now; they want to explore, cut and paste.
5 ANALYSIS OF TRADITIONAL METHOD OF TEACHING Pre-technology education context, the teacher is the sender or the source.The educational material is the information or message.The student is the receiver of the information.The delivery mediumchalk-and- talk” methodoverhead projector (OHP) transparencies.In such a lecture students assume a purely passive role and their concentration fades off after minutes.
6 LIMITATIONSTeaching in classroom using chalk and talk is “one way flow” of informationTeachers often continuously talk for an hour without knowing students response and feedback.The material presented is only based on lecturer notes and textbooks.There is insufficient interaction with students in classroom.More emphasis has been given on theory without any practical and real life time situations.Learning from memorization but not understanding.

12 TEACHING WITH SENSE OF HUMOUR Laughter is a natural, universal phenomenon, with beneficial effects, both physical and psychological.Everyone loves a teacher with an infectioussense of humor.Cordial relationship.Ability to relax people and reduce tension.Advertising strategy.CartoonWhen there is a willingness to change, there is hope for progress in any field.Students enjoys humor in forms of funny anecdotes

19 TEACHER THE GREATEST INNOVATOR Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young.To teach is to learn twiceTeachers should guide without dictating, and participate without dominatingThe critical factor is not class size but rather the nature of the teaching as it affects learning.LEARNING NEVER ENDS
