Dr. Bala shared experiences and deliberated with Academic and Vocational staff of the National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS).
He explored the Media initiatives of NIOS and also conversed on the upcoming Gender Green Teacher Programme.
The proposed Gender-Green Teacher Programme would consist of ICT enabled, in-service professional development for secondary level teachers, in the areas of environment and gender, complemented by a strong ICT enabled network/community of practice of teacher practitioners.
The project would include modules on gender and environment with a common focus on how these themes can be mainstreamed and integrated into teaching and learning. The overall objective would be to increase knowledge, change attitudes and improve responsible practices/behaviors in regards to both the environment and gender, at both the level of the teacher and the learner.
