"Teacher Enrichment workshop" for private school teachers
A first-of-its-kind professional development program that empowers teachers with focus on experience, enquiry and enjoyment of the teaching–learning process of science.
Do you want your students to
have a thorough conceptual understanding of subject content
think while they learn, develop a scientific attitude, ask questions
connect the science they learn inside classroom to what they experience outside
enjoy learning science, stay more focused, involved and participate actively in your class
To deliver the above, your teachers must
have in depth command over subject matter, focus on the conceptual understanding, expand the horizon of students' learning beyond prescribed textbooks
create opportunities for students to think, ask questions and also facilitate the discussion towards answers
adopt concept deriving methodology instead of defining concepts, perform experiments versus demonstration
perform reflection sessions and use established techniques to revise the topic
Our unique program empowers your teachers by
providing in depth coverage of science topics from grades V to VIII with emphasis on concepts and flow of concepts
offering an experience of enjoying learning Science with an approach to the understanding of Science versus just knowing of Science
developing scientific temper, applying concepts, ability to appreciate Science around us
reflecting on each topic through mind-map creation, detailed notes for all topics
performing experiments following questioning and deriving approach
enabling sessions beyond textbook Science, covering Science of Life for our existence in harmony with nature
Which will achieve the following outcomes
Develop subject and pedagogic expertise
Offer the experience of the art of learning science and the art of teaching science
Explore and experience the science of life
