Cambridge University Press (CUP) conducted ‘Cambridge Professional Development Day’ a series of workshops across India for CIE school teachers. The workshops were conducted with a highly interactive and responsive style focussed on multiple topics by International Teacher Trainer – Simon Lind, Professional Development Manager, Cambridge University Press.
The workshops – held in Mumbai, Delhi, Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Chennai – aimed to engage with over 350 teachers from across India. The seminars were conducted with interactive sessions aiming to encourage teachers to explore the guidance and philosophy of teaching and learning products.
With a particular interest in active, enquiry based learning in a bilingual international setting, the sessions were held on activities and ideas based on best practice inspired by leading educationalists and also draw on dynamic and exciting products from Cambridge University Press.
Speaking on the initiative, Lind said, “Our events are aimed at either class or subject teachers, with a strong emphasis on pedagogy and developing new teaching strategies. The workshops were highly interactive, the teachers were fully involved in experiential learning and left inspired, enthused, motivated and ready to take new inspiration into the classroom. It was an absolute pleasure working with so many passionate teachers willing to learn and dedicated to improving the learning experience for their pupils.”
Designed to help schools and teachers secure a lifetime of achievement from their pupils, the events provide quality, modern training and professional development. The teachers also get a certificate from Cambridge University Press for attending the workshops.
