In South Africa and elsewhere in the world, those in the teaching profession require specialised knowledge and skills if they are to prepare learners to develop to their fullest potential and grow up to be the best that they can be.. However, many of these competencies can only be imparted through the actual practice of teaching. Managing the microteaching process: a practical guide to teaching practice preparation is a resource developed to support the teaching practice module of pre-service teaching programmes offered at tertiary institutions in South Africa and other African countries.

Managing the microteaching process: a practical guide to teaching practice preparation provides lecturers and students in both face-to-face and open distance learning environments with the opportunity to participate in simple, carefully planned teacher training tasks. In addition to covering the theoretical foundation, it develops teaching knowledge and skills through practising in a controlled environment.

Contents include the following:
• Entry behavioural skills
• Lesson induction
• Skills of explanation
• Planning and presenting a lesson
• Receiving feedback
• Teacher and learner activities
• Skills of assessment
• e-Portfolios
