I would say that the most important thing that I have gained from the teaching toolkit/Post Graduate certificate is confidence in my ability as a teacher. As previously stated I have previously questioned my ability as a teacher. However having completed the teaching toolkit this served to enhance my confidence in my own teaching as I was slightly apprehensive prior to the commencement as this was my first observation and I was concerned about what others thought of my teaching. I feel that the process of peer observation helped me to reflect upon my teaching. The process has helped me to look at the different aspects of my teaching, such as methods of delivery, level, student management, and to reflect on how I approach and deal with these issues. This is something I had not previously done, certainly not in a focussed, structured way at least. One example of this was during one of the peer observations the observer noted that during the session I had to deal with a difficult student who after arriving 20 minutes late proceeded to do almost nothing throughout the session. I mentioned to the observer that I was forced to speak with him at the end of the session about his behaviour. The observer mentioned that perhaps I should have spoken to him sooner (i.e. during the session itself) as to address the situation immediately. Though I was justified in my actions, the reflective process taught me to think about the situation and was my actions the best way of controlling it and whether there were better methods I could have used. As a result of this session I feel that I will be more confident and assertive in future sessions.
