PAIE workshop on "Rediscovering Genius" on Saturday, November 16, 2013

Dear Member,

 PAIE in collaboration with The Circle of Care Awareness Programme at Therapy Works is organizing an awareness workshop titled Rediscovering Genius. Once we accept that each student has his/her own learning style, our entire perception about teaching changes. The workshop invites teachers and educationists to experience insights into multiple intelligence theory.

Why should teachers/educationists attend?
Howard Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligence has met with a strong positive response from many educators. It has been embraced by a range of educational theorists and, significantly, applied by teachers and policymakers to problems of schooling. The workshop will aim to illustrate this modelusing living examples from pre-school, higher, vocational and adult education initiatives.
Participants who wish to attend the workshop are requested to bring their school curriculum text books of subjects which they teach to get most out of the workshop.
 Details of the workshop are as follows:
