Chitkara International School is always inclined and directed towards fabricating the holistic development of the teachers through various workshops in and out of the school. The workshops aim to churn out and refine their learning and teaching abilities in an unprecedented way. These workshops take both academics and recreation into consideration which eventually act as the edifice of empowered learning and teaching.
Workshops/Programmes for Students
We run student workshops and conferences throughout the academic year. Our workshops cover scores of topics, but our focus is on critical thinking, co-curricular activities, and study & life skills. All of our programmes encourage students to question their assumptions, evaluate arguments and develop a broader perspective. Various workshops like Training for Model United Nations by Debate Mate, 3D Printing, Career Counselling Session, Playnomics: Student workshop on Economics and Management etc. form a part of guidance for students. Our goal throughout is to inspire students with a love of learning and to help them become independent thinkers and responsible citizens of the world.
Workshops/Programmes for School Teachers
Teaching is an extremely vibrant field with continuous innovations in pedagogy, curriculum and technology. It is due to this that it becomes imperative to provide continuous and sustainable opportunities to enhance the skills and competencies of the educators. We organise various workshops/programmes for teachers and motivate them to attend workshops/programmes outside for their pedagogical and pragmatic learning. Our interactive workshops on Making lesson plans and Teacher’s Diary, Early Numeracy and Reading Comprehension, Induction Programmes, Buddy Teaching, Corporal Punishment etc. leverage the faculty’s passions and help all teachers to bring about tangible results vis-à-vis teaching.
Workshops for Non- Teaching Faculty
Non-teaching faculty at a school play a vital role in supporting teaching and learning in schools. The workshops are intended to enlighten the faculty on a plethora of subjects ranging from personal development to sharpening the skills. Our regular workshops in school also develop professional attributes and make the staff stand out. The workshops on Media literacy, Child Rights, Basic Life Support by Fortis Hospital etc. are few of the many examples to be cited.
Workshops for Support Staff
The support staff is the backbone of Chitkara International School and to add to their already existing reservoir of workplace readiness, the school constantly conducts workshops. The participants of the workshop include the staff from the security, sanitation, transport, electrical support, drivers and helpers. The workshop covers an array of topics like professional grooming, first aid, the significance of sanitation, disaster management etc. It also acts as a platform to build teamwork, have a better situation and conflict management, improve professional communication and so on.
