Dr Sandeep Kumar, General Secretary, International Council for Education, Research and Training (ICERT) was the keynote speaker at the event. In his speech, he addressed how a child in the 21st century should be perceived. Many teachers joined the discussion and made pictorial depictions to highlight features.

NEP 2020 encourages a multi-dimensional skillset, builds upon traditions and values, focuses on cultural-linguistic diversity and different backgrounds, and emphasises breaking disciplinary boundaries and pedagogical change for cognitive-affective-life skill development of a student. Teachers, of course, play a crucial role in this which is why it is important to strengthen and refresh the skill base of the teachers from time to time. The recently held workshop was an initiative geared towards achieving this.

In his presentation, Dr Kumar further gave an overview of the new educational structure, effective governance and leadership, vision of higher education, and comprehensive credit system. Further, he shed light on the expected transformation in the regulatory system.

The programme ended with an interesting Q&A session where teachers expressed their concerns and queries. A total of 43 participants attended the workshop.
