On 1st of April, 2017, a wonderfully enlightening counseling session on ‘Motivation’ was organized at Radiant International School, Patna. Ms. Reshmi Sen Sharma Basu was invited as the Resource Person to conduct the workshop. In a welcome departure from the conventional workshops, Ms. Sen Sharma Basu made the gathering feel comfortable by her very endearing presence. The objective of the workshop was to create a sense of motivation among the faculty. She started the workshop by making all the participants to meditate to self-introspect and to find out three of the traits that everyone wants to change in his/her life.

       The participants were made to realize how to come out of the difficult situations in life. The entire morning session was devoted on motivating people to come out of the stressful situations. Much emphasis was laid to take people to come out of low self-esteem. There was a break for tea and then five groups were formed. The participants of each group were given a topic. The participants were given individual questions to have innovative answers. Posters were made and three members were chosen to present the ideas depicted. This session proved to be highly informative and helpful. The counselor also made her own points.

 Finally, a feedback session was organized where each of the participants was encouraged to tell his/her own impression about the session. The whole event was quite refreshing as it was conducted informally.

Its objective was to highlight limitations of the present educational system, pedagogies, teaching environment and discuss ways to improve them and make them responsive in our challenging times to cater the needs of the children of modern generation.

 

The workshop gathered teachers’ inputs and suggestions on topics such as teaching methodology, observational skills, assessment skills, value-oriented education and the need to introduce a few modern changes which play a significant role in the all-round development of not only a teacher as an individual, but also the children of modern era as a whole.

 

The workshop also had a segment where the teachers got the exposure to Maslow’s Definition of a Self-Actualized Person followed by a presentation on the characteristics of self-actualized persons. It not only helped the teachers go through a self-introspection moment which turned out to be an eye-opening session for them, but also helped them figure out the levels where they actually stood.

 

A group-activity was also organized by the faculty in order to engage the teachers having divided them into five groups and having given them five unique questions to each group so that they could come up with innovative answers and present their ideas either in the form a role-play or a speech. Teachers found the workshop highly informative as well as helpful at the same time because it dealt with their genuine problems in their daily lives at school.

It concluded with a feedback round where every teacher, who attended the workshop, presented their own views of covering various other aspects that help one become a successful teacher. Suggestions from the teachers, based on their field experience, reached a broad consensus on various technicalities which partly helped the workshop become a grand success.
