Mr. Ugyen Dorji, Asst. Lecturer
Philosophy of teaching and learning:
Ugyen Dorji is a teacher at Samtse College of Education, Royal University of Bhutan. He has taught Mathematics, Teaching Skills and Teaching Strategies at undergraduate and PgDE level. He has a good knowledge on information technology and can comfortably navigate through software’s like MAT LAB and SPSS. He believes in applying mathematical insights in research and therefore along with the faculties from the Department of Mathematics and IT Education, he has imparted inferential statistics knowledge to teachers and lecturers by training. He firmly believes, Mathematics need to be taught creatively using inquiry based learning (IBL) method. In many Mathematics classrooms, doing Mathematics means following the rules dictated by the teacher and remembering and applying these rules. However, an IBL approach challenges students to think like Mathematicians and to acquire their own knowledge by creating/discovering Mathematics. For his Statistics module, he initiated and supervised his students in their project work particularly in applying inferential statistics in data analysis part of their study. He has also attended training (University Teacher Qualification) at Vrije University in the Netherlands. After completing the course, he has used Menti Meter in his classroom teaching and has shown improvement in the level of engagement from the students in learning. Menti Meter assist tutor in acquiring instant feedback and managing interactive classroom. A training session on Menti Meter has been offered to the faculty during the PLS (Professional Learning Series).
