On 18th September 2019, a Workshop on “Upholding Ethics and Integrity” was conducted in ET Lab by the B.Ed department of KIHEAT, which was facilitated by Mrs. Preeti Sinha student councellor and personality trainer. She proved to be an excellent Counsellor and an experienced guide from the experiences she shared and the way she expressed herself as an active and lively speaker who held our attention for quite some time. The sessions were not at all boring. In fact, time flew so fast that, in the feedback form, I even mentioned that we needed extended sessions in such Workshops, so that we could learn more from skilled Counsellors like her.
The major takeaways from the sessions were,
1. How to make the classes more lively with different activities. I need to save these activities and research for more variety activities to make my classes more effective and lively in future when I become a teacher.
2. The major ethical issues which today’s children face and tips to overcome them were discussed in detail, which helped me understand that these are the issues that I would have to face with my students. I would like to learn about more experiences and how they were effectively dealt with so that I don’t get panicked when faced with reality.
3. Each and every person should be treated with so much respect. The way in which all my batchmates showed their talents by acting and speaking and also drawing showed me how gifted and different each person is. Through the Caricature Activity I understood that I need to do a thorough SWOT Analysis so as to highlight my best features.
4. Moreover, I was amazed by the speech delivered by Charlie Chaplin to the soldiers. The funniest comedian of all times, who makes us laugh always, how powerfully he conveyed the message of how they should help each other and liberate the nation! It showed that each of us have that inner power, which can shake the world.
5. Another tip I took was to keep myself updated about the circulars updated by CBSE. Being a prospective teacher, it is something which is very important.
6. On the personal level, the major lesson I learned, and would like to put into practice is that I should learn to deliver my words effectively without the help of paper or chits. This was a tip given by Principal, Dr. Priti Srivastava at the last in her vote of thanks speech.
To conclude, I am looking forward to the next Workshop, as the first Workshop was very interesting and the messages were effectively communicated. I would love to attend such workshops in the coming days, so as to sharpen my skills as a teacher and guide for our coming generation.
