教师的角色和责任可以在教学周期中得到最好的理解。这是基于学习循环开发的戴维。A. Kolb（1984）。确定需求和计划：教师（作为评价者）需要评估学生以建立他们的学习风格。一种广泛使用的学习风格模型在教育称为瓦克（- 2006）。了解以往的学习经历和特殊教育需要等因素是很重要的。在完成评估和建立他们的需求。老师需要制定一个课程计划，让所有的学生都能达到学习效果。设计学习：教师的角色是制定一个教案，以确保课程大纲/课程材料按时完成，同时考虑到课程的长度和课程的可用性。教师要根据学生的学习风格，采用不同的教学方法来设计课程。他还需要考虑所需资源和评价方法。实施（便利）：教师（作为促进者）需要以这样的方式提供学习计划，以确保学生在每一次会议中都参与并集中精力。学生需要了解会议的目的和预期成果。教师需要通过设计阶段确定的各种资源、活动（如工作表、问答）和教学方法来交付计划的会议材料。他需要意识到，如果学生遇到困难，他可能需要调整课程。评估：教师（作为评估员）负责学生的连续评估，以确保学生参与并理解会话。它是用各种方法的重要。其中两个最受认可的是形成性评估，它通过提供反馈和总结性学习来帮助学习，从而证明学习者在满足所要求的标准方面的成功程度。它必须给教师和学生清晰的了解学生的理解和进步。评估必须是可靠的，包括使教师能够提供必要的帮助来进行改变和改进学生的进步。评价：检查学习开始改变。教师必须确保所有的行政和组织要求都已完成，包括外部机构（即授予机构）的要求。教师需要在课程设计、学习方法和所使用的资源等方面对学生的成绩进行评估。这种反思需要使用使下一届更成功。
The roles and responsibility of the teacher can best be understood in terms of the teaching cycle. This is based on the learning cycled developed by David. A. Kolb (1984). Identifying needs and planning: The teacher (as an evaluator) needs to assess the students in order to establish their learning styles. A widely used learning style model in education is known as VARK (Fleming 2006). It is important to understand previous learning experiences and such factors as special educational needs. Having completed the assessment and established their needs. The teacher needs to develop a lesson plan, reaching all the students and that will deliver the learning outcomes. Designing the learning: The teacher’s role is to develop a lesson plan to ensure the syllabus/course material are completed on time, taking into account the course length and sessions available. The teacher needs to design the sessions using different teaching methods that take into account the students learning styles. He will also need to consider the resources required and the assessment methods to be used. Implement (facilitate): The teacher (as facilitator) needs to deliver the plan of learning in such a manner to ensure students are engaged and focused in each session. Students will need to understand the aims of the session and the outcomes expected. The teacher needs to deliver the planned session material, using the various resources, activities (e.g. worksheets, Q&A) and teaching methods identified during the design stage. He needs to be aware that he may need to adapt the session if students experience difficulties. Assessing: The teacher (as the assessor) is responsible for the continuous assessment of the students in order to ensure students are involved and understand the session. It is important to use a variety of methods. Two of the most recognised are formative assessment which contributes to learning through providing feedback, and summative which demonstrates the extent of the learner’s success in meeting the required criteria. It must provide the teacher and student with a clear picture of the students understanding and progress being made. The assessments need to be reliable and consist enabling the teacher to provide any help required to make changes and improve the students’ progress. Evaluating: check learning and initiate change. The teacher must make sure all the administrative and organizational requirements have been completed, included the requirements by external bodies (i.e. awarding bodies). The teacher needs to evaluate the results of the students in the context of the course design, learning methods and resources used. This reflection needs to use to make the next session more successful.
