Training Development

Training and Development

Education is a learning cycle without an end and teachers are life-long learners. Professional development for teachers helps them to keep themselves updated with the subject knowledge and the advances in the areas.

 Research shows student achievement increases by 21 percentile points as a result of professional development for teachers. 

Some of the objectives of the Professional development program for the teachers in Sri AurobindoMira Universal School are,

  • Updating the subject knowledge with the advances in the areas. 

  • To update the skills, attitude and development in the teaching techniques and stay updated with the educational research and development.

  • Improvise the teaching techniques and apply the changes in the curriculum.

  • To develop and apply new strategies in curriculum and other aspects of teaching practice.

  • To socialise within the teacher community and exchange the best practices of the teaching with fellow faculties.

  • Help new and weaker teachers to become effective in teaching.

Professional development of teachers has a direct impact on the children’s learning ability and their overall development. It is not that teachers do not update themselves. There are various activities through which teachers try to keep themselves abreast with the current scenario but outcome varies from activities to activities. Listed below are the list of activities that our teachers are involved in and get themselves superqualified to be a 21st century teacher.

  • Courses and workshops

  • Reading professional literature

  • Education conferences and seminars

  • Professional development network

  • Individual and collaborative research

  • Mentoring and peer observation

  • Observation visits to other schools

  • Qualification programmes

Aided by the Inhouse trainings and other sessions,the proud teachers of SAM Universal are able to come up with

  • Better Learning Outcomes for Students: Research Studies show students taught by the teachers who attended the Professional development program for the teachers had higher scores in all subjects as compared to the students who are taught by the teachers who were not able to attend any formal Professional Development program.

  • Develop Better Skills in Organizing and Management:  Teachers learn the art of managing the time and stay organised making them efficient in their work and spending extra time to focus on student’s development.

  • Gain Knowledge and Insight into Industry: Teachers are no longer only content givers but students expect them to be subject matter experts and help them understand the subject with utmost ease. The teacher who undergoes more PD develops the knowledge and insight of the industry and updates themselves with the current trends.

At Sri AurobindoMira Universal School, we are exactly able to identify the challenges faced by the teachers and the dire need of the time to keep teachers updated with the current situations. There are various programs offered by SAM Universal ,where teachers can easily enroll into the program and keep themselves updated. Also there is opportunity to meet like-minded teachers, interact, discuss on the subject specific topic and become a part of the ever developing community.
