Jalandhar: To improvise and sensitize the fundamental education pattern in schools, LPU has taken up new corporate social responsibility, under its project Disha, to empower school teachers for new teaching pedagogy. Talking to Media, LPU Pro Chancellor Ms Rashmi Mittal informed: “It is generally rested upon universities to make students job ready, thoughtful, pragmatic and socially awakened. However, it cannot be easily done if fundamentals added up at school are not strong. This is true more so in the case of India where schools are still using most of the traditional methodology. Understanding this gap, LPU has started to train and sensitize school teachers and principals on this requirement. For this, we designed two days course and workshop for school teachers and we are happy that principals and teachers from Kendriya Vidyalayas (KVs) and Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas (JNVs) participated in the workshop, showing firm faith in our deliberation.”
Organised at LPU campus, this workshop of project ‘Disha’ saw participation of more than 80 schools from Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, UT Chandigarh & Punjab. About 130 Principals, Heads & PGTs, from Kendriya Vidyalayas, Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas, Adarsh Sr Sec & other reputed schools participated. During this, LPU experts held various important technical sessions and Panel Discussion towards Sharing challenges and innovations in School & Higher Education and bridging gap between the both, Hands on Exercise-Emails, Blogs and Personal Web Pages, e-Learning concepts and lab work, Role of ICT (Information and Communication Technologies in Educational Institutions), Communication Skills, Managing Work Life. Visiting educators also underwent interactions with senior functionaries of LPU, feedbacks and open forum for discussions and recreational activities. On both the days of the workshop, the teachers of distant places had been provided with suitable lodging, boarding, food and other facilities.

Seeming buoyant, Mr Dutta said: “We have learnt a lot from the subject experts here in the university. I particularly liked the ICT imparting to us in a very simple and easily intelligible way, and also the UMS and RMS of the university, based on this. In fact, much has been gained towards our skills, and now our students will naturally learn the latest trends and technologies through our teachings to them. We want that such efforts should continue in future too.”
