About Globe Driving Academy

[threebestrated.ca].  The core team at Globe Driving Academy embodied many of the key attitudes and values that form part of the driving school unique culture:  safety, responsibilities, professionalism,  the willingness to learn, and respect for other people on the roads.

According to William Kahn, professor of organizational behavior at Boston University - We have a choice as to how much of ourselves we are willing to invest in our jobs and careers. When Globe Driving Academy was opened, the founder of the company and core staff was highly emotionally and physically engaged to operate the school with passion and dreams to be recognized in the local community as one of the top driving school in Toronto in terms of the quality of the services and students satisfaction.  The staff employed at Globe Driving Academy is highly engaged in their task performance, love to share with students their experience with enthusiasm,  They also feel a sense that their work in the driver education industry is worthwhile and made a huge difference in students’ life and safety on the roads in Toronto. .As a Company, Globe Driving Academy want all In-Car instructors and In-Class teachers feel that this driving school is special place, the place  where they can feel psychological safety: a feeling that they are valued, accepted, respected, and able to perform their job in a very positive,  friendly, and inspirational  work environment.

Teaching Approach at Globe Driving Academy

Sometimes during the following job interview, we are asking candidates for teaching position the following question: could you please explain your approach to teaching. How would they reply? It is a difficult question. We spend a good deal of time thinking about how we teach, but we spend less time thinking about our approach to teaching. Our In-classroom teachers and In-Car instructors vary on four dimensions that we call their BIASes.

B. BELIEFS about students/learners, beliefs about the process of learning, belief about the content or skills to be learned, and beliefs about the role and responsibilities of a teacher/instructor
I.  INTENTIONS as to what students are to learn or what the person teaching them is trying to accomplish
A.  ACTION or ways in the teacher enact the role of the teacher using techniques and methods in particular ways to help students learn
S. STRATEGIES, or ways in which a teacher combines beliefs, intentions, and actions into strategic thinking and decision-making.

It is extremely important that our instructors are aware of their own way of teaching. If they know what their preferred teaching style is, they should be more aware as to whether it suits the learning style and needs of theirs, students. Moreover, they should reflect on their philosophical orientation to teaching called perspectives on teaching. There are five perspectives on teaching: transmission, developmental, apprenticeship, nurturing, and social reform. Each perspective represents a different way of thinking about their students, the process of learning, the content to be learned, and the context within which learning and teaching are to take place.

To be an effective In-Car instructor you must be yourself because we teach who we are. Your perspective on teaching influences what method, techniques you select to use, how you use them, and how you interpret your students’ success or failure. There is no single “best way” to use these tools or ideas that you have learned in your training, or from books because all these materials should be adapted to your own perspective on teaching.

By working with Globe Driving Academy, Instructors are learning the art of teaching adults and developing their professional career. Artistry requires more then the simple use of techniques and methods, it flows from a comfortable blend of experience and harmony. Experience is the accumulated knowledge Instructor acquire over time, through trial and errors and through reflecting on what she. has done. Harmony comes from the insight instructor is gaining from reflecting on the relationship between his personal teaching style, his philosophical perspectives, and the tools he uses as a teacher.  

Working with GLOBE Driving Academy instructors can reach the stage of artistic teaching by moving from technical knowledge to craft knowledge in how they use the teaching methods and techniques. When they have craft knowledge, these methods are no longer separate from them.  They have been adopted to become part of the answer to the question “What is my approach to teaching”.
