TOPIC: "The teachers we need for the education we want"
DATE: 5th OCTOBER 2023
VENUE: UNESCO New Delhi Cluster office, Chanakya Puri, Delhi
TIME: 10:30 AM – 1:30 PM
SEMINAR PARTICIPANTS: Ms. Shuchi Malhotra and Ms. Seena Bijoy
The seminar emphasized the importance of enhancing the working conditions for teachers, ensuring they receive adequate support, fair compensation, and thorough training. This focus arises from the severe shortage of teachers in India. Such measures are essential for attracting and retaining the finest educators, who play a pivotal role in the nation-building process. In contemporary times, teachers are not merely instructors in their subjects; they also take on the roles of philosophers, guides, and friends to their students. Given the evolving demands of their profession, it is imperative to provide them with comprehensive on-the-job training, involve them in capacity-building initiatives, and transition from a critical evaluation model to a more supportive approach towards teachers.
