Jain Vishva Bharti Institute, Ladnun, a deemed university in Rajasthan, is organising a national conference on 'Teaching English to Socially and Culturally Marginalized Learners' on March 3rd and 4th. The conference is being jointly organised by the English Department and ST & SC Cell for Remedial Coaching Classes of the university.
To achieve excellence in training, extension and experimentation in various branches of learning, Jain Vishva Bharti keeps on organising conferences and seminars. The purpose of the present conference is to identify the causes that deter the empowerment of marginalized groups and suggest the affirmative action to improve students' learning of English.
To make learning of English by marginalized learners effective, we need to end social isolation by small group learning, and develop cultural linkage through transitional material strategies from home language to school language to new language.
Also, there is a need to build corrective feedback mechanisms and enough practice for consolidation of on-going learning in classroom to compensate the lack of lack of academic support at home and to allow freedom of pace of learning initially to cross the barriers from social learning to formal and institutionalized learning.
According to the organisers, Jain Vishva Bharati is committed to provide highest quality of educational services to the utmost satisfaction of the students and give them an opportunity to cultivate an integrated personality backed by spirituality and moral values along with learning the formal and mainstream knowledge areas.
