The main purpose of the workshop was to enlighten the teachers with the objective of inculcating the ancient knowledge and adapting the new methodology, which is well described in the NEP and NCF policy. The key points discussed were:

  • The teachers play a vital role in facilitating and guiding the students to find the facts and help them to reflect upon their learning.
  • We need to prepare students for being GLOCAL, i.e. Think and stick to your origin and roots of the Vedic studies and ideologies (local) and be proud to project it globally with new scientific and futuristic ideas.
  • The teachers can refer to the elements of teaching and learning ‘Panchadi’ and ‘Panchkosh’ and implement them in planning and executing their lesson plans.
  • Parallels were drawn between Pachkosh and Blooms taxonomy and Panchadi and Maslow’s theory.
  • The students need to be prepared to be self dependent and look for long term experiential learning rather than rote learning.
  • Multiple learning styles like collaborative learning and RAS (Reticular Activating System) need to be used and incorporated for better results.
  • Different names of teachers as per our scriptures was discussed, Adhyapak – Upadhayay – Aacharya – Pandit – Drista – Guru. It was urged to understand the meaning of each stage and strive to be the real Gurus.
