Educational and Practical Workshops for Instructors: A Prerequisite for Quality Improvement
Today, attention to the comprehensive upbringing and growth of children is of special importance. One of the goals that should be emphasized in children’s upbringing is that children need to grow throughout their lives, just as their physical health is essential; their spiritual and mental growth should also be considered.
One effective way of promoting the spiritual growth of children is through their education, communication, and familiarity with the Quran. We know that how each child becomes familiar with the Quran can take various forms. In some cases, children become acquainted with divine words by listening to the Quranic verses being recited at home.
As time passes and children grow, they can become familiar with the Quranic verses and undergo Reading Quran training. This is another responsibility that parents can consider for their children’s growth.
The Quran is a book of upbringing and has been revealed for the upbringing of humans. The Quran can create growth in various dimensions and areas for our children and can have benefits for them. The benefits of teaching the Quran to children include religious upbringing, providing a program for worldly and hereafter happiness, reminding them of servitude, shaping beliefs and acceptability, and influencing others.
Moreover, the true religion of Islam places great importance on learning and teaching. Any knowledge that is beneficial for people in this world or the hereafter is considered desirable in Islam, and one of the subjects that learning is recommended for is the Quran.
It is narrated from the Prophet (S) that “The best among you is the one who learns the Quran and teaches it.” In fact, learning the Quran and teaching it to others is the best of deeds and brings one closer to the Almighty.
Teaching the Quran to children requires two important principles. The first principle is teaching the Quran by experienced and knowledgeable instructors. Quranic instructors and teachers should be familiar with the approach, principles, and objectives of the Quranic teaching program and have a precise understanding of the teaching content. They should also be proficient in the principles, objectives, and evaluation methods of educational progress to achieve the mentioned goals and benefits of Quranic learning in children.
The second important principle is the teaching methods of the Quran to children. Nowadays, the role of effective teaching methods in children’s learning is well understood. Therefore, Quranic instructors and teachers make learning the Quran sweet and delightful for children by using engaging and practical teaching methods.
In this regard, the DarulQuran Academy attaches special importance to developing and conducting practical workshops on teaching methods for Quranic instructors and teachers. The DarulQuran Academy offers all aspects of Reading Quran, points, teaching methods, games, entertainment, and related activities to Quranic instructors and teachers in practical educational workshops.
Therefor, the DarulQuran Academy held a special practical workshop for German-speaking instructors in three sessions of about one hour and provided the necessary training to enhance the abilities of esteemed instructors for teaching Quran Reading to kids and teenagers.
One of the most significant benefits of holding educational workshops for instructors includes the following:
- Facilitating the achievement of the institute’s educational goals.
- Improving the quantity and quality of teaching provided by instructors.
- Creating coordination in the way tasks and activities are performed.
- Developing the hidden talents of instructors.
- Creating a platform for growth and success in their professional matters.
The DarulQuran Academy has included the organization of such educational courses for Quranic instructors and teachers in its agenda and is dedicated to providing the highest quality of education by utilizing the knowledge of elite scholars and instructors.
