Diversity improves tolerance, empathy and critical thinking. Inclusion or Inclusive education provides a friendly atmosphere which helps in empowering students and Staff. Belonging is acceptance and pride of the Institution. These strong feelings build up confidence and belief.
"There's no magic wand for correcting diversity and inclusion," says writer and advocate Melinda Epler. "Change happens one person at a time, one act at a time, one word at a time."
The Learning Program is based on the book 'Wanted A BackBencher Last Ranker Teacher' by Kavita Ghosh. The teachers collaborate for Reading, wRiting and Research, and make presentations based on their real-life learning. This is a proven method for helping achieve better student learning outcomes. The eleven sessions are online and you will see a paradigm shift in your staff teams as they experience eLearning at its best.
LFIN Professional Learning Program (PLP) is an extended and profound learning experience that immerses members in a model of inquiry and problem-based learning. Staff members work collaboratively to gain knowledge to solve significant student learning problems in their schools. We seek to understand individual members' needs and then assist them in meeting objectives through a collaborative learning environment and with the support of experienced coaches.
Inspired by WANTED BACKBENCHER AND LASTRANKER TEACHER - Kavita Ghosh: When indiscipline at Roderick International School, Mussoorie, becomes an alarming issue for members of the Board, educators and parents alike, CEO Jacob Roderick decided to bring in an experimental teacher, Roma Mathur against the wishes of the Board of Directors to curb the growing aggression, hostility and vandalism. Will someone like Roma Mathur, written off by her teachers as a ‘Moron’ and ‘Good for nothing’, be able to inspire learning in students who loathe studying and sitting in classrooms? Will this maverick academic, who had been extremely mischievous as a student herself, be able to instil values and discipline in her students? Is there any place for someone as unconventional as Roma Mathur among the esteemed and sophisticated faculty at the prestigious International School? Has Jacob Roderick made a grave mistake in recruiting someone who plays the drums, watches Tom and Jerry, beat up Goons in the pub, and rides a sports bike, over the gold medalist, experienced teachers who had applied? What was it the school needed at this desperate hour? It is time for the students of RIS to take a call on what kind of teachers they need in their classrooms.
