The resource person began the training session with the quote by Sidney Hook ”Everyone who remembers his own education remembers teachers, not the methods and techniques. The teacher is the heart of the educational system”. Elaborating the objectives of this workshop he said “A teacher who is attempting to teach without inspiring the pupil with a desire to learn is hammering on cold iron” The discussions were informal and lessons were activity-based for the self-development and life skills development.
The day one activity was BINGO, the objective was to know about our colleagues by writing the attributes of fellow faculties. Some of the learning outcomes were -effective communication – helping the people and team building. The second session was about gibberish language to form the teams and define the product with the tag line, all the teams came with innovative names and products with a tag line. The outcome was presenting the ideas, communication and exploring the opportunities. He also spoke about the qualities of a good teacher which includes Truthful, Encouraging, Approachable, Humorous, Creative and Energetic.
