Teachers and Qualifications  

So besides discussing what students should learn I want to bring up who exactly would teach them and what qualifications they should posses in order to do so.

One of the main things I wonder is should teachers not only possess some experience in the classroom during studying, but also experience outside the classroom in a career that utilizes the topics they would be teaching even if it is only a few months.

I found that utilizing what I learnt in school in every-day situations made what I learned stick easier, helped me understand how it applied to the real world, and ultimately help me understand the subject better than just reading and writing about it in class.

Anyway look forward to see everyone responses, especially those who are teachers themselves

Ideally, those within our number that are teachers, or have teaching experiences or are otherwise suitably qualified are suited for fullfilling such roles. People experienced in the subject should be able to assist in composition of course materials, minimally.

Experience tends to trump acedemic theory, so it's not a poor idea to have experience in fields relevant - But I don't think this should be required, at least for all subjects. Many "learn by doing" easiest. Where possible, courses should contain as much practical/physical implimentation/testing of principles covered by the course as would make sense for the subject in question.

I don't think any particular course should specifically focus on any particular medium or method when it comes to imparting educational information - a range should be offered such that the student is able to select for themselves which it is that they will meld with the easiest.

As an experienced teacher, I can say that experience rhymes with theory. There are a plethora of theories and strategies for the art and science of teaching. It takes time to learn and use these strategies. The more theoretical one's training, though, the more qualified they are to measure achievement. Likewise, the more experiential one's training, the more qualified they are to "do."

Will there be a body within MYE that will be responsible for teacher qualification?

Perhaps recognizing the qualifications from other jurisdictions with conditions, for example instruction of a course under the supervision of the Asgardian regulation body.
