SUSTAINABLE LIFETYLES AND EDUCATION
BACKGROUND & RATIONALE
We also conduct teacher training and work with educators, to build their capacity around pedagogy of sustainability education. Educators’ workshops actively engage teachers on issues of social and environmental development as well as strengthen their perspectives and methodology on youth development. These workshops are crucial to imbibe a
culture of positive engagement in the pedagogy of education at the institution. The aim of these teacher trainings is to make teachers more self- aware & reflective learner-practitioners and participate actively across programs. The
educator’s workshops not only ensure the sustainability of Swechha’s intervention in the institution, but also equips the participants with necessary skills and knowledge tools to incorporate participatory learning pedagogy and value-based education into their mainstream curriculum and their interactions with students.
SUSTAINABLE EDUCATION AND PEDAGOGY
LEADERSHIP AND TEAM BUILDING
Our training program aims to introduce pedagogic methods that will enable teachers to integrate value-based educational ideologies into the mainstream curriculum. We hold exercises that enhance and foster creativity and communication skills. As Dewey declared “social progress is dependent upon educational progress”. Our education must instill in young people a sense of justice, ethics and a concern for the welfare of society. The innovative methods of interaction aim to make the teachers impart knowledge in a confident and self-sufficient way. At Swechha, the aim is to ensure that each teacher becomes part of an eco-system of holistic educators and leaders.
Teaching methods need to be thought-provoking, and interactive. They need to call upon a student’s ingenuity. Intellects are shaped not merely by what we learn but more importantly by how we learn. In the past, Swechha has led such educator workshops with over 700 educators from several prominent private and government schools like Navodaya Vidyalaya in Delhi/NCR.
We are always looking for young and enthusiastic minds that can help us create the change along with being the change. Whatever your passion, we always have opportunities for you along with endless cups of Chai!
