On successful completion of the experiential learning programme, the teachers can get a course completion certificate from the DIKSHA portal.
Union Minister of Human Resource Development Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ has launched an online course on “experiential learning” for teachers and school leaders. The interactive online course has been jointly developed by Central Board of School Education(CBSE) and Tata Trust. All CBSE-affiliated schools are asked to encourage their teachers and school leaders to join this online course "mandatorily". The free online course for teachers is accessible on the ministry’s DIKSHA platform.
On the successful completion of the experiential learning programme, the teachers can get a course completion certificate from the DIKSHA portal. The certificate will be made available from July 10, 2020.
In this regard, Mr. Pokhriyal, in his social media post, said, “With the objective to promote experiential learning pedagogy in schools, cbseindia29 in association with @tatatrusts has come up with an #innovative & interactive online course on ‘Experiential Learning’ via #DIKSHA meant for Teachers and School Leaders.”
The minister added, “I would request them all to join this incredible course. Let's strive to make the learning process for our students more joyful, reflective and multidisciplinary.”
CBSE developed the programme to help teachers impart 21st-century skills among children. The official statement released by CBSE read, “As our country fights the Covid-19 pandemic, educationists world over have realised that education has to take many leaps forward for a world where children are emotionally and physically resilient to face the challenges of a different world to come. For this, we need to create opportunities for children to learn the skills and competencies for the 21st Century that correspond to both livelihood and well-being.”
“This promotes self-thinking, creativity and effective study skills among students. It is a proven fact that learning by rote when replaced with learning by doing accelerates the joy, understanding and conceptual clarity of the student. While the teacher facilitates and guides, the student is able to evaluate, think critically, and make decisions and master knowledge by constructing it,” an official said.
