Structuring Spontaneity: A Paradox in Learning?

Explore how selective structuring of teaching sessions enables deeper explorations by students, thus evoking wonder and curiosity in the classroom.

I wonder webinar 8th Nov 2023 LN

Offering students space for spontaneous immersion in the natural world can help them develop their observation skills and experience a sense of discovery. 

On the other hand, structured learning experiences can help students engage with scientific concepts from the school curriculum in a focused and systematic manner. 

How do we, as teachers, bridge these two requirements? Join us as we explore this question in an interactive session with Radha Gopalan and Vinay Suram.

The discussion will be in English.
