Assuming that most teachers chose the profession of teaching not because of their passion for teaching or their subject but because they found it convenient or the only respectable option, their attitude toward their subject is not very enthusiastic in nature. For example, Gailbraith conducted a study with Math teachers in 1984, which concluded that more than half of the prospective teachers had, at best, a lukewarm attitude toward mathematics.
Since most teachers have not themselves discovered the value and the beauty of their subject during there postgraduate years they often fail to enthuse their students in the subject.
INDUS LEARNING aims at enhancing teachers’ attitude toward their own subject by helping them discover the subject they teach in a fresh perspective. The initiatives will also include behavioural and experiential training imparted through workshops organized by Indus Learning.
