Developmental Workshops for Educators | 2019

Vedatya is organizing a workshop as a part of its on-going effort to work with our partners in the school system with an objective of adding value to all our stakeholders, especially the students.

The two topics of discussion are as follows.

Discussion 1

Attitude is central to achievement, it is also the hardest to modify or change. While we measure, communicate, document and discuss academic performance and achievement of related learning objectives, the same cannot be said about attitude/behavioural aspects of our students. How can we build and deploy a framework that documents and measures critical attitudinal aspects with intent to assist our students to identify and close any gaps that can adversely affect them in their professional and personal lives.

Discussion 2

Technology has emerged as an enabler of superior learning and knowledge transfer. What are some of the emerging tech tools that are available to educators today? The forum will share the tools and best practices towards their adoption in classrooms.
