NEP Workshop Report
New Delhi, April 9, 2021: NEP is a comprehensive framework to guide the development of education in the country. In school education, the policy focuses on overhauling the curriculum, “easier” board exams, a reduction in the syllabus to retain “core essentials” and thrust on “experiential learning and critical thinking”.
Concerning the NEP 2020, a workshop was conducted by Apeejay School, Panchsheel Park, on 8th and 9th April 2021, for its teachers to mentor them about the working model of NEP 2020 and strengthen the existing practices at the middle school level. School Principal, Mrs Ritu Mehta, Vice Principal, Mrs Shalini Agarwal, and Academic Coordinator, Mrs Jyotsna Madan explained the working principles of NEP at the middle school level in depth.
The Workshop emphasised adapting different teaching styles along with the need to adopt an inter-disciplinary approach in the classroom to provide children with experiential learning and critical thinking skills.
Day 1 focused on designing new and different teaching-learning styles where children can act as the initiators of their learning and teachers act as mere facilitators. Day 2 stressed the inter-disciplinary approach where different topics were demonstrated with the help of ICT along with their correlation with other disciplines.
