“True teachers are those who use themselves as bridges over which they invite their students to cross; then, having facilitated their crossing, joyfully collapse, encouraging them to create their own.” – Misty Copeland
Delhi Public School, R.K Puram organized various workshops for the teaching staff members of Classes VI to XII in the month of September. These workshops were conducted by various field experts to educate and inform the staff members about various domains related to education. These workshops were educational, informative and enriching and were conducted as per the following schedule.
The first training session of the series was conducted by Professor K. Ramachandran, Senior Advisor, NIEPA on 11 September 2023 and 15 September 2023 on New Framework In Education – NCF & NEP. “The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character—that is the goal of true education.” — Martin Luther King Jr. The National Education Policy (NEP), established in 2020, aims to bring with it a slew of changes. From syllabus updates to grade structure modifications, it’s evident that the NEP aims to revolutionize the current system. To help our teachers understand and adapt to the changes in the education system, a workshop on ‘New Frameworks in Education’ took place on 11th September, 2023 in the Audio Visual Hall. The speaker Prof. K. Ramachandran emphasized on the important points of the New Education Policy. He made the teachers understand the major highlights of the new policy- Holistic development, equity inclusion, creative curriculum, multidisciplinary approach, restructuring different stages (5+3+3+4), outcome based learning and competency based education. The speaker used various examples from his own life to explain these concepts and highlighted the skills that the teachers must acquire for the successful implementation of the policy. This was followed by a question-answer session where the teachers were able to clear their doubts and overcome their misconceptions about the policy. It was truly an enlightening and informative session.
