The MEB has prepared a comprehensive training program for teachers for the semester break

The Ministry of National Education has prepared an optional comprehensive training program for teachers during the two-week semester break between January 22 and February 6. In this context, the MEB has created a new digital platform and will implement the ÖBA (Teacher Information Network) for the first time during the semester break. Teachers will be able to participate in continuing education activities prepared for them between January 24 and February 4 through the IBA (Teacher Information Network). Participation in the seminars will be optional. Seminars are constantly broadcast during the specified date range and participation can be done from any location with an internet connection.

The seminars will be accessible via the ÖBA platform oba.gov.tr. By logging into the system with their MEBBİS or e-Government passwords, teachers will be able to attend one or more of the training topics offered. The “certificate of participation in the seminar” will be given in the form of an electronic certificate of the MEBBIS continuing education module to teachers who complete the seminars.

During this period, training opportunities were offered in nine different subjects: training in intellectual and industrial property rights, training in climate change and the environment, training in first aid, training in organization and library use, English language system teaching skills development training, counseling skills training for children in Temporary Protected Status, counseling skills training for children in Protective Status temporary, digital skills development training and activity-based course design training.

Taking stock of the subject, National Education Minister Mahmut Özer said: “As I explained earlier, the main objective of ours this term is the multidimensional support of the professional and personal development of our teachers. In this context, we are taking a multidimensional step. I am happy to see the positive reflection of these steps on the results. While the number of teachers participating in the trainings we conducted in 2021 increased by 2020% from 134, we achieved the highest number of training hours per person in the last ten years with this increase. Thus, while the training hour per teacher was 2020 hours in 41.6, this rate increased by 2021% to 125 hours in 93.4. I would like to thank our Directorate General for Teacher Education for carrying out these processes.

Özer said he created the Teacher Informatics Network (ÖBA) in 2022 to enrich the training options for distance education teachers, and that this platform will be used for the first time during the two-week semester break between January 24 and February 4. 2022.
