As the course is progressing, a lot more involvement and participation of the teachers is noticed, through questions and doubts they ask (either about the topics covered or general wonderment about daily observations- for example, why does one brand of milk not freeze while kept in the freezer while another does), sharing pictures of their engagement with children based on their learnings here, messages and call regarding doubts about assignments and so on.
The Anubhava faculty on their part have been keeping themselves busy while they are free making sure they remember every teacher’s name in a conscious attempt to maintain a personal relationship with each one. How are they doing it you wonder? Excel sheets with names and photos of teachers! Last month’s assignment for Anubhava faculty was to memorize them and results reveal they did not do a bad job of it!
Five teachers were unable to attend because of their transfer counselling organised by the department. The session was repeated for them on Sept 24th.
October will see 3 days of engagement that will include external experts and a lot of interactive sessions on the science and maths of life, in keeping with Anubhava’s aims and objectives.
