Suraasa, an edtech headquartered in Dubai and providing professional development programs for teachers, has announced The International Teachers’ Olympiad 2022. Registration for the Olympiad will begin on the 1st of September, & will be open to in-service, retired as well as aspiring teachers to participate. The teacher upskilling platform also claimed that top teachers from the Olympiad will win cash prizes as well.
The Olympiad is expected to draw participation from 100,000 teachers of various nationalities across the globe. The goal is to determine the effectiveness of teaching practices across global teaching standards & empower teachers for hybrid classrooms, the changing modalities, evolved pedagogies, and innovative practices. Schools will get a separate report with aggregated, overall scores of all their teachers combined along with an action plan for enhancing student achievement & engagement in their classrooms. This will help them as well as their teachers to approach professional development & growth in a more data-aware manner.
Teachers participating in the Olympiad would be able to assess their state & national level position with their percentile scores. They will also get a personalized analysis of their pedagogy skills and a 6-month action plan with expert recommendations from international teacher educators.
Rishabh Khanna, Suraasa CEO commenting about the Olympiad says, “We believe that the International Teachers’ Olympiad will go a long way in getting them the much-deserved recognition by highlighting their expertise in the world. It will act as a tool for teachers to discover their true teaching potential by identifying their individual strengths and giving them a concrete plan of action to achieve their goals.”
