9th-10th April 2016, New Delhi: UNESCO MGIEP is organising a workshop for instructors on difference learning with a focus on the 4 Ds – Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dysgraphia and Dyscalculia. Teachers will be introduced to innovative teaching methodologies that promote inclusive education.
- Location: IIT, Delhi
- Schedule: 8:30am onwards
At UNESCO MGIEP, we believe that if a minimum of 10 students in a class of 60 learn differently, they deserve to be taught in a fun and interactive manner rather than be subjected to forced correction.
The UN-LEARN Conference is our first step in that direction.
Apart from telling the world about the various Learning Disabilities and its symptoms; we want to enable teachers and instructors with several innovative teaching methodologies and tools that will make their classes “dyslexia friendly” and thus more inclusive.
Description: The workshop will have a total of 12 sessions by more than 20 speakers – experts, educational psychologists and teachers from across the world.
In addition, the workshop will also have the following:
Activity workbooks: MakeSpace – a set of two activity workbooks will be released during the workshop and will be given to each attendee. It will contain a checklist of symptoms of various learning disabilities and will introduce a brand new Dyslexia test specially created for India called DALI. MakeSpace will also contain various innovative teaching methodologies to support instructors to make their classes more inclusive.
involvED Conference: Six (06), 15-minute talks that will move you, force you to think, maybe even make you feel a little uncomfortable and yet give you hope.The involvEd conference will involve you in the process of inclusive education. Did we mention, that it will be hosted by one of India’s most popular (and intelligent) stand-up comedians – Rivaldo!
The Heat show: Our big panel debate on the best practices of inclusive education. In the scorching summer of Delhi, we will further heat it up with direct questions to people who are working in the field of Difference learning (about why their work is not enough?) and to the policy makers (about why we will fail to provide a better education before we start).
