Session

DAY 1 - Session on - Raising Institutions A concept by Dr. Rajesh Hassija

Raising Institution: A Concept Education transforms and empowers lives. It is the process of facilitating learning through acquisition of knowledge, skills, values, beliefs, and thus, developing attitude & habits. All educational institutions focus on different domains of school education such as Scholastic & Co-scholastic, staff development, individual attention to the students, leadership & supervision, parental involvement, infrastructure, etc. Still there remains visible educational gaps or divide amongst these educational institutions. Some institutions are appreciated for their excellence and while some are not. Some of the leaders, very conveniently, evade the responsibility and hold students, staff or home environment responsible for the failure.

Whereas, they fail to reason out their poor vision, unstructured systems and procedures implemented, lack of school-home partnership and probably the uninspiring leadership responsible for the downfall.

How should one raise educational institutions?
How should one design system-scaping for educational excellence?

…a thought by Dr. Rajesh Hassija

Day 1 - Session on - Changing role of the leader :- by Dr. Harish Chaudhary

The room at the top is very lonely and cold-an age old cliché'. That the students ,parents and teachers of the previous generation were more disciplined and respectful is also a feeling that every generation has had and that the current generation is heading for a moral, ethical and spiritual disaster is also not uncommon.

To lead a set of uninitiated and unquestioning set of disciplined teachers was easy, but the knowledge economy, the blurring of hierarchical structures and information explosion has led to a shift from the autocrative -benevolent leadership styles to a more consultative and participative style of leadership.

To be futuristic in our approach and be contextually appropriate is then a challenge for the visionary leader. This session attempts to suggest an approach to the same.

Day 2 - Session on - Changing Teacher Practices by Mr. Shashi Nair & Ms. Ruchi Ghosh (Azim Premji Foundation)

In the fast paced world we live in, change is a constant. Schools are not immune to pressures to change. Some changes are relatively easy. With adequate funds, infrastructure and facilities can be changed. Others are much more difficult – such as, for instance, changing the practices of teachers. And yet, these are the most rewarding changes that can be made! Without such changes in the practices of teachers and others, schools will not be able to achieve the results that they wish to.
This talk explores why changing teacher practices is so difficult, and what one can do about it.

Practices are just the tip of the iceberg. This session explores what lies beneath the water, in the rest of the iceberg, by exploring how teachers, and others, make sense of a proposed change, and the struggles that they go through. At the heart of success of a change process lies understanding what teachers think, feel and do as they grapple with letting go of existing modes of thinking, and inculcating new behaviors and emotions that help establish desired practices.

The session uses a mix of presentations, videos, case studies, group work and discussions, to help the participants appreciate this world of changing teacher practices.
