Prerana – Journey from Teacher To Guru

 Need for FDP based on value initiatives:

The relationship between the teacher and the taught has been unique through the ages. The teacher through his exemplary life and knowledge had always left an indelible impact on his disciples. Although the teacher continues to be the backbone in the current education system, the perspective, role and responsibilities of the teacher has undergone a change. The primary responsibility of a teacher today appears to be merely ensuring the students’ academic progress as a pathway to a lucrative career. Unfortunately, the fact that the responsibility of the teacher transcends the boundaries of a classroom has been pushed to the background.  A teacher with vision, passion (for teaching), compassion towards students and above all, personal integrity and right conduct leaves a lasting impact on the young minds.  It is such a role-model teacher who brings about inner transformation of students. This program recognizes this missing link in contemporary teacher training framework and seeks to provide the much needed inputs to close this gap.

Objective of the FDP:

  • To enhance pride and passion towards their profession
  • To enthuse creation of innovative teaching pedagogies
  • To enable teachers play multiple roles effectively
  • To empower teachers so that they become catalysts of change
  • To embark on a journey from Teacher to Guru

Through the ages, a “Guru” has played a very significant role in the Indian society. Guru’s exemplary life and knowledge has transformed many lives, thus safeguarding the personal and social values.
