Workshop for teachers

Bangalore, Nov 15, 2012, DHNS :

A two-day workshop for teachers organised by Karnataka State Higher Education Council (KSHEC) in association with the British Council began at the KSHEC premises on Thursday.

The workshop titled ‘Teaching for Learning: Implementing Effective Pedagogic Design in Higher Education’ will involve Higher Education Innovation and Research Applications, Bangalore and the Centre for Academic Practice, Queen Margaret University, Edinburg and the Centre for Education and Research, Tumkur University.

The first day was eventful with a highly interactive session and a number of exercises for the participating teachers. Some of the lessons imparted were on designing of proper teaching methods, the frame of reference that teachers draw from and the importance of feedback and reciprocation, to name a few.

Mohan Prakash, a professor in the English department of Tumkur University, feels that such sessions are a must for  academicians.

“I learnt about concepts that I had never heard before and these should be definitely implemented,” he said.

There were, however, those like Rani Ratna Prabha from Gupta College who felt that the things which were taught at the workshop, although brilliant, cannot be fully implemented in the Indian context.

“On the point of trying to achieve student’s satisfaction, we are constrained by time and have to constantly run after the syllabus. Moreover, in many schools, language poses a major hurdle to students being satisfied with a teacher’s teaching,” she said.
