Summer School Academic Training Workshop-21 days for Udayan Shalini Fellows
EVALUATORY REPORT OF SUMMER SCHOOL ACADEMIC TRAINING
The concept of Summer School Academic Training was drawn from the idea to improve the efficiency of academic learning and develop better orientation towards the career choices for the fellows studying in 12th std. It was envisaged as an extension of USF programme and an alternative to the conventional teaching methodology of school teachers.
v To improve and enhance the academic preparedness of the fellows of 12th standard by providing them specialised guidance of experts from various fields.
v To serve as a platform of discussion based learning to the fellows to clarify their subject specific queries.
v To provide effective and goal directed career guidance to the fellows to make them aware of their career choices.
38 fellows of science and commerce stream participated in the summer training at Mahavir Senior Model School. They were provided specialized guidance by experts for Physics, Chemistry, Maths, Accountancy, Business Studies and Economics. The faculty members were professionals of their respective fields. For e.g. Vaibhav Bhatnagar provided guidance to the fellows of commerce stream.
For every subject, the focus of the experts was not only on completion of course but clarification of doubts. The faculty members laid emphasis on “smart learning” where the application of short cut methods in approaching the questions was explained to the fellows. All the important concepts were explained by means of educational games and activities where the faculty members facilitated the participation of the fellows.
The faculty members oriented the fellows towards preparation for various entrance examinations (esp. for science stream) so that they could understand the difference of pattern as compared to the school exams and prepare themselves accordingly. The fellows developed insight into career choices that they can make after their schooling. The basic awareness was regarding the courses that are available in their respective streams and the pros and cons of the respective courses.
In this method of training, the fellows were able to shed their inhibitions in asking questions and clarifying their doubts. The activity based learning approach adopted by the faculty generated interest and the fellows were able to grasp the concepts in an easier manner. Besides, the career based discussion developed a sense of career planning in the fellows in a way that they could give shape to their career related desires and take charge of their future accordingly.
