Pedagogy of Early Reading and Writing

Date: Nov 20-25, 2017

Last Date of registration: Nov 03, 2017

The School of Continuing Education and University Resource Centre of Azim Premji University, Bangalore announces a Course on the Pedagogy of Early Reading and Writing. This course is the latest addition to our list of in service programmes, specifically designed for the faculty and teacher educators of State Councils of Educational Research and Training (SCERTs), Colleges of Teacher Education(CTEs), District Institutes of Education and Training (DIETs) and the Resource Persons of non-Government organizations (NGOs) working in the field of Education and Development. This 6 day Certificate Course on Pedagogy of Early Reading and Writing will be conducted from 20th November to 25th November 2017.

The world is going through a phase of rethinking about early literacy and its relation to learning. In the recent days live debates about the relevance of reading and writing across the curriculum, as a window to all learning has woken us up to the disturbing reality that classroom pedagogy has fallen short of global discourses and practices. Literacy pedagogy needs to transform itself from the avatar of a mechanical skill to be understood as tool of the mind, a process for thinking and articulating ones thoughts. Somehow schools do not teach children to read and write in such a way as to go beyond information, search for books, extend their learning and become lifelong readers. There is a growing awareness that this understanding needs to inform classroom pedagogy in the D El Ed classrooms. This has led to the designing of this course which will prompt teacher educators to examine the current situation of literacy pedagogy and to explore the comprehensive approach to literacy pedagogy.

Language across Curriculum

Date: Nov 6-10, 2017

Last Date of registration: Oct 20, 2017

In order to enhance the capacity of practicing professionals working in the field of Education and Development, the School of Continuing Education and University Resource Centre of Azim Premji University, Bangalore has designed and conducted a number of capacity enhancement programmes till date and the present course entitled Language across Curriculum is the latest addition to our list of in service programmes specifically meant for the Faculty and teacher educators of State Councils of Educational Research and Training (SCERTs), Institutes of Advanced Studies in Education (IASEs) Colleges of Teacher Education(CTEs), District Institutes of Education and Training (DIETs) and the Resource Persons of non-Government organizations (NGOs) working in the field of Education.

As all school subjects are learnt through language, teachers as well as teacher educators need to develop a critical understanding of the nature and role of language in the context of the child and the curriculum and this assumption has prompted us to design this 5 day Certificate course from 6 November to 10 November 2017.

It is pertinent to note that the course documents for the Bachelor of Education and the Diploma in Teacher Education programmes published by the National Council for Teacher Education also highlighted the importance of a Language across Curriculum perspective in teacher education. The language papers of these programmes are based on the assumption that language is a tool to understand concepts in different content areas such as Social Sciences, Sciences or Mathematics and in view of the thrust given to the Language across Curriculum perspective in the policy documents, this 5 day course will enable the participants to develop perspectives on language and to understand and experience the centrality of language by relating it to the overall objectives of the curriculum.

Exploring Sustainability in the Indian Context - Online Course

Rapid and widespread environmental, economic and social changes have led to urgent global questions of sustainability. Concerns of sustainability in developing countries like India can be very different than that of industrialised countries. In developing countries, equity and social justice are central to addressing sustainability, along with environmental concerns.

This interdisciplinary, multi-instructor course provides an introduction to sustainability within the context of development in India. We develop an integrated perspective on sustainability along ecological and social dimensions, and use these to examine critical themes of importance to India, like population, food, and climate change. We explore how our imagination of culture, markets, state, and even of nature itself influences sustainability action. We end with examining how to take sustainability action - as individuals, communities and larger collectives, and across all scales, from the local to the global.

Participants in this completely online course are expected to watch video lectures, join interactive online video-discussions with expert faculty from different domains, and participate in discussion forums.
