insightful teaching, methodology, approach , self-analysis and teaching



Technology has developed and laid its strong roots even in the field of education. Focus has been given merely on the utilization and the Progress in the usage of teaching aids, there is yet another dimension which needs fine-tuning in the part of teaching. A teacher whether a fresher or an experienced needs to update herself in her area and also teaching methodology every now and then. One such practice which reinforces the educational system is Insightful teaching. This Insightful teaching needs rumination of the classes handled and the feedback got from the students. This method will be effective for a teacher to contemplate on how he/she has handled the class. The positives and negatives of the class and the area, where manifestation is needed for further success and final analysis can be framed .It helps to find whether he/she could justify that the students have understood the concept or not. This paper frames a clear structure on tweaking the efficacy of teaching using navel-gazing and developing one’s own tutoring to be successful and confident in imparting the best knowledge to the students. This is materialised by taking three topics which is handled in two different classes. In one class insightful teaching is done and the other class with normal teaching, in order to identify whether it has an impact among the student’s learning or not. A pragmatic approach proved that the class with the insightful teaching shows good results. This paper creates a positive cognizance that insightful teaching has the power of re-forming the teaching methodology of the teacher’s themselves for the betterment of the students.
