CBSE imparts one-day tranings on "Experiential Learning for Science and Mathematics Teachers" to make classrooms engaging and joyful
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has organized one day Training Programmes on "Experiential Learning for Science and Mathematics Teachers" in association with Centre for Creative Learning, IIT Gandhinagar at Chandigarh and Haldwani in the last week of May.

The trainings were held at Government Girls Model Senior Secondary School Sector 18, Chandigarh; and Universal Convent Senior Secondary School, Kusumkhera, Haldwani, which were coordinated by CBSE Centre of Excellence, Dehradun and Directorate of Education, Chandigarh Administration.

According to the  CBSE, the training had two-fold purpose, namely, to develop the conceptual understanding of experiential learning; and to enable teachers to design experiential activities which could be integrated with the curriculum and make classrooms engaging and joyful.

However, one shot trainings of one day on a new approach to science and math instruction require a rigrous follow-up and hand-holding so that the training gets transferred to classroom.

In experiential learning, direct, hands-on or concrete experience provides information or data that serves as a basis for analysis,  reflection and constructing knowledge in the form of concept attainment. For teachers to become apt in experiential science instruction, they are required to create research lessons to be conducted in their schools under the guidance of academic leader to become apt in the new approach to learning, said a retired teacher in Jaipur
