KIIT World School organized a workshop on ‘Understanding and development of self from a teacher’s perspective’. The resource person, Mr Gaurav, a Fulbright scholar, highlighted the traits of a good teacher i.e. Effective communicator, empathetic and self- aware. He also emphasised that the teacher must play the role of a director instead of an actor. The need of the hour is to be in a responsive state instead of a reactive one. Different learning styles were shared(VRAK) i.e Visual, audio, read and write and Kinesthetic. He also apprised the audience about the different learning zone theories such as comfort zone, fear zone, learning zone and growth zone. Optimum results are found in the last zone ‘growth zone’.
