Equipping Teachers free of cost ‘to make them ‘Ready for Online Teaching’
Tutors Pride to upskill Teachers to migrate from traditional classrooms to online teaching
Hyderabad: Tutors Pride, an on-line resource that has been recognising teachers for “Ideal Teaching Practices and Methodologies” for the past several years is now embarked on upskilling private teachers who lost jobs to migrate from traditional classroom teaching to online. We will train them in Hybrid model of teaching, informed Dr Ankam of Tutor’s Pride. Besides upgrading their skills, it would like to set up a fund to help teachers a sum of Rs 1000/-.
We used to spend Rs 40 to 50 lakh every year by holding ITAP-Ideal Teaching Awards Program. Instead of it this year we will help teachers bounce back into their last jobs with upgraded skills, says Dr. Ankam, Founder of Tutors Pride.
We are also in the process of announcing few quick and short terms courses free of cost which will make Teachers Ready for Online Teaching.
The sudden shift from traditional classrooms to virtual learning plunged many teachers into uncharted waters. Those who were unable to shape upto the new challenges thrown at them shipped out of their career. For many educators, the transition from teaching in a physical classroom to a fully virtual environment is a new experience and posed several challenges. Teachers were confronted with the need to adapt to online teaching
Those who could not handle Teaching in a virtual environment, those who were unable to familiarise themselves with technology are now fighting to survive. Doing some odd jobs such as selling vegetables, working as farm labourers, daily wage earners, sheep-rearing and many jobs below their dignity. I have no qualms about accepting any opportunity. I am ready to accept whatever the role comes my way. Otherwise my family will be starved to death, said a teacher, Teachers of many private schools and colleges are living a hand-to-mouth existence.
“Teachers should be the best minds in the country”.Teachers are known to be building blocks for society. They raise the responsible citizens of the society. Through these upskilling programs and financial help, we would like teachers to earn their lost glory, says Dr. Ankam.
