Under the umbrella of MCE of the World Federation and Africa Federation Tabligh Board – AFTab, and with ardent support from the Madaris in Africa, the Teaching Skills Program and Micro Teach Sessions continue to be conducted for the wholesome development of Madrasah Teachers and students.

The following sessions were held during September to November 2016: 

  1. Micro Teach Sessions – Husayni Madrasah Girls Section, Dar es Salaam in September 2016
  2. Teaching Skils Program – Husayni Madrasah, Mombasa in September and October 2016
  3. Teaching Skills Program and Micro Teach Sessions – Husayni Madrasah Boys & Girls Section, Dar es Salaam and Yaadgare Murtazawi Madressa, Arusha in October & November 2016.

Below are brief reports of the above sessions.


The Sessions were conducted by the MCE Facilitator and Principal of Husayni Madrasah Girls Section, Sister Shaida Abdulrasul. This platform of Teaching Practice serves to continue developing the skills of each of the Teachers as they commit themselves towards gradual, continued progress and self-development.

Comments from the Teachers:

  • The observer’s comments were very helpful; helping to find out one’s weakness. I became aware of my own shortcomings by watching out for someone else’s strength and areas of development.
  • Microteaching gives a two-way interaction between a teacher and a student. In a student’s role one grasps the receptivity or perception in the minds of students. Thus you can find out what can be confusing when a teacher skips a point which may seem minor to him/her. Therefore as a teacher one can make an extra effort to plan a lesson that can be effective for students to understand the chosen subject.

The topic ‘feedback’ was a real reflection on us. It was evaluation and preparation towards positive change within oneself.

Comments from Participants of Teaching Skills Programme & Micro Teach Sessions:

  • The module has been very helpful in applying CHANGE IN OUR LIVES…and coming out of our comfort zones and touching the SKIES
  • I feel empowered to bring about a necessary change in Madrasah. Motivated me strongly as a madrasah teacher
  • It’s made me realize my shortcomings and the needs of the students
  • Feedback is important for growth & development. I like the fact that we were pushed to reflect and look at the usual class from a different perspective.
  • The whole process of lesson planning is an interesting process in understanding the quality of information that is being handed out to the class and to realize that it can be BETTER!
  • Lesson planning brought clarity. The session itself; seeing the lesson plan in practice was fulfilling. Feedback session was very constructive.
