Abstract

While informal counselling support and guidance have long been regarded as essential aspects of the pastoral role of the teacher, many teachers report that they feel neither prepared by teacher training for this role or personally confident to carry it out in school. Here, we will provide evidence from teachers and students in Hong Kong, that experiential in-service counselling skills training can result in important attitude changes towards teaching and learning. The teachers in the study reported a more "humanistic" rather than "custodial" attitude towards their students, a greater preference for "co-operative learning" rather than "competitive" or "individualised learning" and a stronger expectation that students would take control of their own leaning processes. Their students in turn reported a clear shift to a more positive social-emotional climate in their classrooms.

摘要

非正式的學生輔導及指導工作,長期被視為教師在學校輔導工作上的重要環節。然而,一般教師在入職前沒有接受過輔導工作的訓練,所以他們大多缺乏自信心去應付學校輔導工作。本文以香港學校作研究,引證了「教師在職輔導技巧訓練」有助改善他們對教學工作之態度,同時亦使學生養成良好的學習態度。教師改變以往「監管」式的教導而取用較「以人為本」的教學取向。他們還以「合作學習模式」代替「競爭性」和「獨立性」的學習方法,從而希望學生能自我調較個人學習進度。在研究當中,學生亦清楚感覺到課室內充滿友好的學習氣氛。
