Our faculty member Dr. Manjula R. Iyer, (Associate Professor, School of Contemporary Knowledge Systems) was the resource person for a two-day online workshop for the teachers of Vijnanapeetom Schools in Edanad, Sreemoolanagaram, Ernakulam. The workshop, titled ‘School Teachers Enrichment Programme (S.T.E.P.) – 2021’, was held on 27 and 28 May 2021 with over forty teachers attending it.
Dr. Manjula spoke on equipping and preparing the students and their parents for classes during COVID-19. The programme aimed at the holistic enhancement of teaching skills. The teachers were provided inputs so as to equip them to understand the school’s academic perspective. The workshop also included a session on how to ensure that students follow a routine and inculcate and support moral and ethical values through active participation of parents in the academic process.
