The Lovely Professional University organized a two-day workshop on soft skills, e-Learning and Smart teaching for school teachers under its CSR initiative
New Delhi: To improvise and sensitize the fundamental education pattern in schools, Lovely Professional University(LPU) has taken up new corporate social responsibility(CSR), under its project Disha, to empower school teachers for new teaching pedagogy.
“It is generally rested upon universities to make students job ready, thoughtful, pragmatic and socially awakened. However, it cannot be easily done if fundamentals added up at school are not strong. This is true more so in the case of India where schools are still using most of the traditional methodology,” LPU Pro-Chancellor Rashmi Mittal said.
Understanding this gap, LPU has started to train and sensitize school teachers and principals on this requirement.
Organised at LPU campus, this workshop of project ‘Disha’ saw participation of more than 80 schools from Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, UT Chandigarh & Punjab.
About 130 Principals, Heads & PGTs, from Kendriya Vidyalayas, Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas, Adarsh Sr Sec & other reputed schools participated in the programme.
During this, LPU experts held various important technical sessions and Panel Discussion towards sharing challenges and innovations in School & Higher Education.
