Programme & Innovation (TDC Programme)
Quality improvement of INSET Programmes by SCERT
SCERT had been organizing Training Programmes for Teachers in smaller groups of 50 teachers in each group. SCERT had also been organizing Orientation of Teachers in groups of large number of participants (200-400). We are proposing to organize all types of INSET Programmes (Training/ Orientation) in smaller groups of 50 participants in one group. This methodology of training/ orientation in a smaller group will make the training:
1. Activity-based - The participants will be able to perform required activities either individually or in groups of five to get the first hand experiences.
2. Participatory - In smaller groups, participants can actively participate in the discussion instead of being a passive listener and thus, remove their doubts etc.
3. Peer group sharing - Participants can also share their classroom experiences and innovations with their peers thus, resulting in enriched learning.
4. Closer Interaction with participants - Resources persons can move amongst the participants, thus, developing a closer rapport and enhanced interaction with them.
Online Capacity Building Programme
SCERT, Delhi as an academic authority has been providing academic resource support to the Directorate of Education (DoE) and Education Departments of MCDs, NDMC and Cantonment Board. The focus is on quality improvement in school education with latest content and relevant pedagogical practices for creating effective learning environment in classrooms. SCERT organizes capacity building for all stakeholders across all subject spectrums and other newly designed need based interventions. In the contemporary global society, Information & Communication Technology (ICT) plays a important role. In the classroom situation, ICT has enormous potential to make teaching learning process most interesting, interactive, illustrative and participatory. ICT facilitates development of user-friendly learning material accessible to irrespective of age, geographical distance etc. Mobile learning, online and blended learning directly address the 3 Es of education i.e. enable, engage and empower. ICT also enhances outreach for qualitative education to all surmounting logistical difficulties. The real strength of educational technology lies in its ability to unlock learners learning through enhanced engagement, personalised education and equal access to all.
Cell for School Leadership (CSL)
SCERT believes strongly in the power of leadership training to shape and direct change, both in Delhi Government Schools and in individual lives and careers. Through Cell for School Leadership (CSL), SCERT programs are designed to strengthen both individual and organizational performance.
