Haryana's Sports School at Rai to organize three-day joint workshop for teachers and students in self-study skills
A three-day school-based workshop for teachers and senior science students on self study skills is being organized from November 12 to 14. The workshop has been jointly designed with inputs from school's academic coordinator, Shreya Ghosal, Ex-Raist Narbir Singh and Resource Person Dr Lalit Kishore.

"Since the subjects at the senior school level are taught as disciplines consisting of facts, concepts, laws, principles and theories to link them to higher education, it was thought to train both teachers and students as co-participants in self-study skills such as reading-to-learn skills of outlining the text; reorganizing relevant text in concept matrix; linked noun webs and linked noun-verb webs; creating flow-charts and table charts of textual material and numerical derivations or sums; and visual illustration skill," said the resource person of the seminar.

The initial interaction with Singh revealed that a training workshop only succeeds and new methods or processes get transferred to classroom if 'training needs analysis' (TNA) is done and workshop sessions pass through demonstration and demystification of the processes or skills; their guided practice; enough individual practice of skills, and their presentation by the trainees. He said that care had been taken to transfer self-study skills to students and teachers so as get the skills institutionalized. He hoped that the workshop will be a sure-fire success since the stake of the school's director and participating teachers would be ensured during the preparatory meeting on November 11.

It was envisaged that the classroom discipline comes if students are engaged in self-study skills and learnership with purity of processes for senior students. For a residential school, the flipped-prep design can be implemented effectively in which students apply self-study skills for two-pages of the text daily during the prep-time and get their difficulties removed in the classroom. This way, both the teachers and students come prepared to the classroom and will work as co-learners and teacher assuming the role of a facilitator of innate human potential of learning possessed by the students, opined the resource person.
