MOHALI : A learning workshop for the teachers was organised at the University School of Engineering and Technology of the Rayat Bahra University, wherein the teachers were made to understand how creative and resourceful they could be. The workshop helped the teachers know how the tips given at the workshop could be applied in the classroom keeping the curriculum in mind.
The workshop on “Creating Enabling Learning Conditions in the Classroom” was conducted by Vineeta Sood, an internationally trained educationist and founder Director of Anubhav and Associate Director of ‘Thinking Teacher’.
Sood’s area of specialization is educational psychology, pedagogy and andragogy. She co-founded “Bhavya: Learning Co-operative”, an alternative school, in 2005. During the workshop Sood enabled the teachers to connect with the educator within. The teachers were provided an opportunity to tap into their own resources to be creative.
The session started with the ice-breaking introductory round followed by an activity where each one was asked to define oneself as a kind of teacher one is and what each one thinks about his/her students. The next activity was related to creating conducive environment for learning. This will transform the role of the teachers from teachers to facilitators.
