Awqaf SA Educator Training Workshop
Alhamdulillah, the staff of IEOSA, not only conduct teacher training workshops but also attend educational workshops. Being participants of workshops and seminars assists to broaden their horizons keeping them abreast of the changing environment and growing trends.
The educator training workshop was conducted by the National Awqaf Foundation of South Africa (Awqaf SA) in partnership with H2 Advisory. The aim of the workshop was to introduce educators to innovative techniques to improve the delivery of classroom lessons.
Educators and school managers were introduced to the pioneering research of education specialist, Carl Garner, who has written several books on the ‘How2Teach,’ ‘How2Learn’ and ‘Teach2Learn’ concepts.
The H2 Advisory developed modules to empower teachers to better support and motivate their students and to move away from the traditional techniques of repetitive, “teacher talk and chalk” learning methods to critical, analytical, and problem solving skills.

IEOSA launches their Colour Publications and Online eBooks.
The Islamic Educational Organisation of Southern Africa (IEOSA) held the official launch of the latest edition of their colour publications and online Android Device Inter-active e-books at the Crescent School Hall in Parlock on Saturday, 30 July 2016. The launch, which Alhamdulillah proved to be highly successful, was attended by approximately 200 participants and included teachers from various Madrasah’s and Islamic Schools, principals, madrasah officials and parents.
The presenters at the launch, including the President of the Organisation, Qari Ahmed Yusuff Lockhat, a graduate of the Al-Azhar University in Cairo, explained the need for the transition of the IEOSA textbooks to colour. He also addressed the participants on the need and demand for Madrasah text books being converted to digital format thereby making the books available online in keeping with current global trends. Qari Ahmed Lockhat mentioned that the demand for the IEOSA texbooks has been increasing steadily, especially in the United Kingdom.
The highlight of the launch was undoubtedly the FREE downloading of two of the colour publications, namely, the Ta`leemul Qira’aah Wal Kitaabah Part 1 and the `Ilmut Tajweed’ which ignited much excitement amongst the participants, who tried to ensure that these 2 valuable books were downloaded onto their mobiles and tablets before leaving the Hall.
The online IEOSA e-books are user-friendly and are available via the ‘IEOSA BOOK READER’. The online books have a number of inter-active applications, especially in the Qaa`idah and Hifz (Surah’s and du`aas) text books which plays back the correct recitations not only for easy learning, but also as a useful application for the teacher in the classroom and the parents at home.
