Teaching Aptitude

Teaching is indeed a very complex process which calls for all the socially desirable behavioral change and attitude in a person. Teaching is a part of teaching-learning process. It is required to bring certain changes in a person according to the need of his society and environment in which he is living. Teaching is not an act as it is dynamic in nature so it is coined as process. It is also not a basic concept as it is greatly influenced by social and human factors.

Teaching is both art and science. It is-an activity involving teacher and student with a view to the development of student. The main aim of teaching is to bring about socially desirable behavioural changes in the students and can be achieved only if teaching is efficient and based on certain values or principles. Teaching is one of the main parts of the teaching-learning system. So efficient teaching depends on the teacher. It is a common fact that a good teacher is born and not made. Training and research can make a good teacher better and a better teacher best. Teacher should follow various methods of teaching devised from time to time. A teacher motivates the practice of thinking among students. Teacher should give to the students the freedom and opportunity to express their ideas. Teaching is very crucial in nourishing education to the students.

Education must also be desirable and useful to the society in which educand has to live. Since every individual is unique in their own way, the educator has to adopt strategies and methods suitable to individual needs. Education is also productive.
