Anyway whatever definition we gather, these two concepts should complement each other because it’s hard to be an effective teacher if you are not efficient.
Likewise, if you are an effective teacher, most likely you are efficient.
Effectiveness is about doing or using the right things — things that yield positive results.
Efficiency is simply about doing things right — i.e., completing a task cheaper or faster.
What is the difference between effectiveness and efficiency?
They are two buzzwords that are popularly used by CEOs and Sales VPs in charting the course of their organization.
Managers and team leaders can set the tone an provide the culture of the organization by meeting with their team.
When meeting face to face there are many tools for use for team meetings, tools such as PC’s, Power Point, Whiteboards, books, or handouts.
A good example wherein a teacher can be called efficient is when she always comes to her class (and leave) on time, with well-prepared lesson plan, instructional materials, engaged time on task, and everything is organized regardless of output or result produced in the teaching-learning process. Basically, a teacher is effective when she gives her best in teaching and able to make her students learn or master the skills and turned them meaningful, relevant and applicable in real life situations.
She is a teacher who reaches out to her pupils and can make a difference in their lives.
