Hands-on teacher training brings holistic learning lessons to classroom
Chitkara College of Education’s innovative and Industry led Bachelor of Education Program aims to give the best of exposure and learning to the alpha teachers from world-class educationists and professionals.
At a session recently conducted under the EdGlobal & EDLearner Modules, students were introduced to research-based pedagogical tools that focus on the process of Science rather than Information-transfer. The series of hands-on, interactive workshops, spread over 3 days, were conducted by Senior Professor Helena Dorothy Aikin Araluce and Associate Professor Ana Maria Relano-Pastor, both, from the Department of Modern Philology, Faculty of Humanities, Universidad de Castilla La Mancha, Spain. The custom-designed sessions for our students included topics ranging from Developing the Different Intelligences through the Arts: Introduction to holistic learning and the theory of Multiple Intelligences; Making & Using Puppets in the Classrooms, a Holistic Approach to Education; Developing the emotional intelligence in the classroom; Critical Ethnographic Methodologies for Researching, Teaching and Learning in Multilingual Contexts and Analysing Classroom Discourse in Multilingual Education Research; A Multi-dimensional perspective.
The series of workshops aimed to introduce the future educators to research-based pedagogical tools that focus on the process of Science rather than Information-transfer. During the interactive sessions, students were also taught to prepare their own teaching tools and review those of others.
