Teacher Training and Student Development
This bookshelf cannot cover all the skills that are required from Muslim teachers. It also presents excellent classical and contemporary works that help students of sacred knowledge align their priorities and be more productive in their pursuit for knowledge.
We strongly recommend referring to our other bookshelf as well including:
Adult Learning, Teaching Children, Islamic Perspective on Education (including teaching methods of Prophet PBUH), Overview of Religious Institutions, Educational Psychology and Research Methods.

Australia has one of the most well-designed and comprehensive system of vocational and technical education encompassing more than 500 qualifications in a variety of sectors.
One of the most popular qualifications to develop teaching and assessment skills is "Certificate IV in Training and Assessment".
To me, the four most distinguishing features of this system are:
1. Liaison with industries to identify most required skills
2. Identification of clear objectives and expected outcomes for each learning objective
3. Competency based assessment based on acquisition of right evidence of competence and assessment through best practices methods (competence is assessed against each learning objective ensuring that required outcome is achieved)
4. A continuous professional development structure for teachers and trainers
Adopting these practices can hugely improve achievement of required learning objectives in religious education sector as well.
