Set Continuous Professional Development (CPD) Programme - Inspire By Heartfulness
INSPIRE is a 6-day experiential workshop for teachers, which enables teachers to create joyful activity-based learning in classrooms. The main objectives of the workshop are:
- To learn the four basic Heartfulness practices of:
- Mental Cleaning
- Inner Connect
- To become adept at conducting guided relaxation for all students, and be able to give them instructions for meditation.
- To be introduced to heart-centred pedagogy, understand the various methodologies, and go through initial practical training to apply the same in their classrooms.
During the COVID-19 outbreak, Training sessions were held to help the teachers learn and create new teaching strategies which helped in bringing back the interest of their students in the online classrooms and encourage learning. The webinars were organised for students, teachers and parents. This helped students broaden their skills, as well as their understanding of their field of interest. This also allowed students to attain new knowledge and skills that can supplement or complement their main field of study. Webinars were interactive wherein parents got the opportunity to interact with the resource person. These helped all the stakeholders make it a win-win situation and combat the challenges faced due to COVID.
