TEACHERS’ WORKSHOP – 07 JULY 2018
training workshop was conducted by Mr. Ashwani kumar, Chairman, Indus Quality
Foundation for all staff members of Junior Wing, on 07 July 2018. The aim of
this workshop was to instill self empowerment within teachers. Through two
informative & impactful sessions teachers were equipped with skills and
empowered to give their best during their interaction with students. The first
session revolved around the process of, ‘Becoming an enlightened Teacher’ by
understanding teachers’ traits & classifying them as ‘tamsik’, ‘rajsik’& ‘Satvik’.
The process of teaching & spreading knowledge was explained as a
rewarding experience in itself. The relevance of ‘Human Touch’, as an important
part of a teacher’s life, was discussed in detail. An enlightened teacher was
explained as one who hears, understands, motivates, acknowledges, nurtures,
teaches, organizes and uniquely creates a healthy atmosphere.
Further in the
latter session titled ‘Education & Society’ a quiz was conducted based on the
text, Swami Vivekananda- His Call of Nation. The workshop was interactive and
comprised of presentation, quiz and discussion. Love, empathy, acceptance and
constant urge of learning in a teacher were discussed as traits of a ‘satvik’
teacher, towards which we all should strive. Also it was saliently discussed
that benevolence alone will not make a teacher, nor will learning alone do it,
the gift of teaching is a peculiar talent, and implies a need and a craving in
the teacher herself.
