Creation of learning environment
We do not have learning ambience but teaching ambience
While many western institutions are experimenting on creating learning ambience we are busy creating teaching (cloning is the right word) ambience
Need to create reflective practitioners- the teacher and the taught.
Indian education most often is producing technicians who can execute jobs very well whether it is architecture, design, engineering etc as a true learning ability is not inculcated in the system. Having space/ condition for the creation of knowledge is the primary aspect that could inculcate true learning, critical thinking and ability for reflection.
Self reflection has no space in our system and unless this happens there is no scope to produce thinker doers.
These courses definitely have scope for creation of their own learning's and the monotony with which teachers usually deal with readymade answers would also change the attitude of teacher to become learners. Thus the teacher also become a reflective practitioner.
Teacher has to become a learner, must have the humility and courgae to say I DON’T KNOW and explore along with students.
