Directions to the course participants:
We suggest the participants to kindly go through the course contents, survey (mandatory) and guidelines for attending the programme. It contains very important overall course information. It also contains the information how you need to contact the course coordinator, viz, through email or twitter. Kindly watch the video fully, and it is kept in small nuggets to engage the audience actively in the course. The structured four quadrant approach will provide complete learning experience to the learners. Participants are expected to login into the SWAYAM Portal 4-5 times a week to complete the learning task, provide reflection about learning, assignments and participate in discussions. Discussion postings must be made throughout the week to receive full credit. It is important to remember a discussion is just that, posting all on one day doesn’t allow for much response by your classmates or time to think over issues. Our expectations are very high on participation, since this course is focused to teachers and airing teachers. We strongly believe learning take place only through activities.
