However, the whole world is nowadays facing an acute pressure due to COVID -19 issue.

Thus, a webinar is a presentation, lecture, workshop or seminar that is transmitted over the Web using video conferencing software. A key feature of a Webinar is its interactive elements i.e. The ability to give, receive and discuss information in real-time.

There are many sayings or aphorisms in education, great words of wisdom, and sincere advice from countless sources. It is needless to say that the best and effective teachers are good planners and thinkers. The success of professional teachers doesn't "just happen." The road to success for teachers requires commitment and practice, especially of those skills involved in planning lessons and learning activities, and in managing classroom behavior. Planning lessons, though its implementation being a long-time activity, is a fundamental skill all teachers must develop and improve consistently and fall under the core skills of a teacher.

For a TVET System to be able to play its role effectively, it is important to ensure that there exits an enabling and TVET friendly environment that can be achieved by putting in place harmonized teaching and learning environment through appropriate instructional design and appropriate teaching strategy. Therefore, creating a lesson plan is an important aspect of instructional design. A lesson is an organized set of activities designed to present one manageable sized piece of an academic course content and is different than the lecture. The purpose of a lesson plan is really quite simple; it is to communicate. The lesson plan is to guide TVET teacher in organizing learning material and himself for the purpose of helping students to achieve intended learning outcomes.

Thus, a key principle in creating a lesson plan is specificity. Lesson plans allow the TVET teachers to create and articulate learning objectives, organize and deliver course content, and plan and prepare learning activities and materials. It also outlines the type of informal or formal assessment methods, that TVET faculty will use in their classrooms. It is also an effective instrument to implement the TVET curriculum for achieving specific educational goals and objectives and check whether the desired outcomes are clear and specific in behavioral and observable terms with focus on products or ends.

In this context, this Webinar on the topic, “Lesson Plan Development for TVET teachers” has been planned for the TVET teachers of all member countries to discusses some of the basic concepts, principles and to explore the approaches for building and developing an effective lesson plan.
