An interactive online course on ‘Experiential Learning’ for teachers and school leaders was launched on Wednesday by Union minister for human resource development Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank.
The free course has been developed by CBSE in association with Tata Trusts and is now available on DIKSHA platform of the MHRD.
‘Experiential Learning’ pedagogy enables students to connect the content of the learning areas and subjects with their own lives and the world around them. This promotes self-thinking, creativity and effective study skills among students. It is a proven fact that learning by rote when replaced with learning by doing accelerates the joy, understanding and conceptual clarity of the student. While the teacher facilitates and guides, the student is able to evaluate, think critically, and make decisions and master knowledge by constructing it.
Teachers can follow three simple steps to join the course:
Step 1: Download DIKSHA app on Android smartphone by clicking on the link: http://bit.ly/cbse-diksha
Step 2: Sign in using existing DIKSHA account OR Sign in via Google OR Register on DIKSHA using e-mail id or mobile number
Step 3a: Scan the QR code using DIKSHA mobile application;
Step 3b: Click on the links to open the course on DIKSHA mobile application or desktop/laptop web browser: https://bit.ly/cbse-explrn-wb
It is hoped that after completion of this course, the educators will be able to make learning more joyful, reflective and multidisciplinary. Teachers on successfully completion of the course can download course completion certificate from DIKSHA portal from July 10 onwards.
CBSE has also planned regional webinars for hub leaders, and will share details through CBSE centres of excellence. For any further query schools may contact firstname.lastname@example.org
