GUWAHATI, Aug 31 - �Inspire�, a two-day teacher training programme was organised by the Heartfulness Education Trust at Sri Digambar Jain Vidyalaya, here recently, said a press release.
The programme dealt with various activity-oriented interactive sessions designed around inquiry-based heart-centred pedagogy. The importance of effective and psychomotor domains was emphasised, which are often neglected in the current curriculums which mostly deal with cognitive domain.
The organisers hoped that such training would make education holistic and help in all-round development of the students.
Different learning styles, methods of teaching, leadership skills, communication skills, classroom dynamics, whole brain development, imparting value education to the students through the lesson plans designed by the global Heartfulness team were discussed during the event.
Designed to offer self-development tools to inspire and enable teachers towards achieving holistic growth in students, the objective of such programmes by Heartfulness is to create a conscious learning environment in schools through teachers with an approach of self, students and schools.
Dr Vibin Ramakrishnan, Associate Professor, Dept of Biosciences and Bioengineering, IIT Guwahati, joined the occasion and handed over certificates to the participants along with Pramod Kumar Jain, academic head and member of the managing committee of the school.
