I will use TESSA Key Resources to do the following
Assessment: I will TESSA key resources to plan my assessment formative and summative assessments. I will use forums, quizzes to identify if learners have acquired what they are meant to learn. If not I will follow them up to close the gaps.
Participatory Methodologies: I will use TESSA resources to creatively design and enrich my lesson to make it engaging for the students. I will use brainstorming, role plays, case study, group work etc.
Managing large classes:I will apply knowledge gained from TESSA resources to manage class classes by putting them in groups and local communities.
Questioning Techniques: With TESSA resources I will now ask the students questions that will stimulate creativity and problem solving skills.
Using Technology: I will adapt TESSA OER to enrich my teaching and learning experiences.
I will mainly use OpenLearn as it has many aspects of OER which are free ans easily accessible and are quality assured by basically providing a searchable link and quizzes whose answers are available in OpenLearn.
I will apply the knowledge acquired I from TESSA resources to plan and prepared my lesson,assess my lesson and learners.I will use questioning technique to stimulate thinking and problem-solving skills in my learners.
I will also adapt TESSA OER vto further equip the learners knowledge and enrich my lesson.
TESSA material will help me to prepare lessons with learner involvement. They will help me to teach critical thinking and problem solving skills. I will use the materials to help the pre-service teachers come up with project that use locally available resources. The training of pre-service teachers may need the TESSA materials especially in the methods of teaching course and micro-teaching.
Martha, - you make a good point about formative assessment. I saw my colleague Reymick Oketch (a lecturer at Makerere University) give an inspiring presentation in which he asked participants to access a particular TESSA section and then asked them to analyse the activities and case studies and highlight all the examples of formative assessment. It helped them to understand how to do formative assessment.
Great, Martha! Which TESSA resource(s) would you select to make your teaching more interactive?Have you seen one resource which made you think "Oh! This could help my students understand / do / try. I will try it in this way when I do the topic about..."
The TESSA OER is an exclusive reservoir of resources for the teacher, you may use it as guide, as a reference, as a training manual as well as compare your existing resources with it so as to come up with resources that may best serve the purpose of the teaching and learning process.

TESSA and OER materials will help me in organizing and strategizing the learning content such that the presentation and the delivery of the lesson content will be done in a simpler and interactive manner which will stimulate the interest of the learners.eg
The systematic way of how TESSA present the living and non living thing in science subject. How the topic was brick down systematically torching all aspect of the topic. How living and non living were model from scraps, were just wonderful for some one to adopt this methodology and the systematic content delivery concept.
Open Educational Resources are materials that are available for both teachers and students without any cost to support both academic pursuit and professional development. of individual.
The first thing that l will consider is to see all information and contents compressed in OERs as guide for improvement, means of adaptation for change and an approach compete to meet up will the demands of the global world
I want to recognise the fact that the development of individual is the beginning of the development of an organisation/institution, on the basis of this notion, l see the the OERs as a means for both teachers/educators and students to bring knowledge and practice together for creation recreation of new knowledge. In this sense, l see the OERs as literature and tools for future inquiries.This will create an opportunity for collaboration where individual would be exposed to different activities that provided different ideas for proper learning experience to take place.
I will ensure that my staff use it in their classrooms / on teaching practice, and prepare them, for classroom use, to help them reflect on their experience of use. The preparation can be through the following means :
- Modelling / demontration ( video clips can be useful) and
