Teachers’ Training on Behavioral Change Communication and Attitude
Under the Improving quality of elementary education project, CUTS CHD organized a one-day Orientation-cum-Training Workshop for school headmasters and teachers of the target schools at the Centre’s premises on November 21, 2008, with an aim to orient about the quality education and request them to cooperate in successful implementation of the project. Narmada Bhawe, Additional District Education Officer (Primary), attended the programme and urged the participants to extend their cooperation with CUTS.
During the programme, sessions were held on ‘Behavioral Change Communication and Attitude’. Amit Chowdhury of CUTS CHD delivered a lecture on human attitude and behavioral change communication. Kiran Acharya, Secretary-Helping Hand Society, Nimbahera took a session on ‘Need for Quality Education’. Abha Mehta, Senior Lecturer, District Institute of Education and Training (DIET), Chittorgarh delivered a lecture on teaching techniques. In the end, there was an open session during which participants shared their problems and actively participated in the discussion on quality education. Participants agreed that teachers are also responsible for continuous deterioration of quality education. However, it was found that because of heavy non-academic workload, teachers have limited time to spend with students.
