Teaching Today

a self enhancement program for school teachers

‘Teaching is one of the most challenging and important human endeavours because teachers and teaching hold the power of the future in their hands’
Good teaching comes from the identity and integrity of the teacher’

– Parker J Palmer (Courage to teach)

Teaching Today is a one day activity-based, experiential workshop for school teachers.  It will help the participants –

  • Examine their role and responsibility as educators and rediscover their pride and passion in their profession
  • Align themselves to their institution’s mission
  • Deliberate on the current challenges in teaching today’s students
  • Derive an action plan to be role models for students and perform their roles effectively – go beyond teaching, engage better with their colleagues and students to create a collaborative learning environment
