Workshop on ‘Towards Enriching the Teaching-Learning Process’ By the Department of English.

DEPARTMENT OF ENGLISH

……………………………………………………………………………………

                                                                                                                                                             22 June 2018

 

A Report on the Workshop on

‘Towards Enriching the Teaching-Learning Process’

 

On 22 June 2018, the Department of English conducted a workshop aimed at enriching the teaching-learning process. In her opening remarks, Mrs Shanthi Ramanujam, Head of the Department, spoke about the role of the workshop in promoting the continuous professional development of the teachers and explained the workshop dynamics. At the two-hour-long workshop at which Shri S B Rao, Dean, Ms G Mala, Principal, and all the teachers of the school, including the PETs were present, five of the teachers of the Department made presentations on a range of topics.

 

1. ‘Increasing the attention span of students’ by Ms Suguna

Ms Suguna began the session with an engaging role play illustrating lack of attention among students in a class. The interaction that followed dealt with different strategies to improve. The participants gave worthwhile suggestions such as being empathetic towards students, participatory learning, maintaining rapport with the students and using engaging instructional materials. Ms. Suguna added some more tips to enhance the attention span and suggested updating knowledge and innovating. She also suggested that adequate planning and making classes lively would also help.

 

2. ‘Enhancing listening skills’ by Mrs Shanthi Ramanujam

Mrs Shanthi Ramanujam began the session with the question ‘What is the difference between hearing and listening’? This triggered a discussion. It was concluded that ‘hearing’ is an involuntary process – rather passive – and that listening, a voluntary process, is active involving comprehension, interaction and communication. Different types of listening such as pseudo listening, appreciative listening, empathetic listening and critical listening were discussed. It was stressed that teachers need to inculcate active and comprehensive listening as well as critical listening in the classroom. After this preliminary discussion, Mrs Ramanujam conducted a listening test for teachers. She played an audio clip consisting of exchanges between native speakers of English in business contexts. The listening was quite challenging, and the teachers took part in the exercise with the utmost attention to answer the questions which followed. The test was followed by some tips for enhancing students’ listening skills. The session was interactive and engaging.

 

3. ‘Correcting pronunciation errors in English’ by Ms Pannaga K Murthy

Ms Pannaga spoke on the history of sounds and stressed the need to pronounce words properly. ‘Though there are 26 letters in the English alphabet,’ she said, ‘there are 44 sounds.’ She gave examples of the errors made in English pronunciation by Indian speakers, and explained with the help of videos the difference between native English pronunciation and the pronunciation of English by Indians. She advised her colleagues to learn the phonetic script (symbols) as well as use a dictionary which, she said, would help them in pronouncing words correctly.

 

4. ‘Common errors in English’ by Ms Bindu

Ms Bindu said that, due to the influence of the mother tongue, Indian speakers make some common errors in English. She gave examples of such errors and asked the teachers to rectify them. “A common mistake is ‘Copy it word by word’. ‘Copy it word for word’ is the correct usage,” she said. In order to speak effectively without errors, she suggested subject-verb agreement, prepositions and tenses should be used with care.

 

5. ‘The art of questioning’ by Ms Leena Satuluri

Ms Leena began the session with an activity-based story. The teachers took part in it asking close-ended questions leading to investigation. Different types of questions and the principles behind questioning were discussed. Ms Leena provided tips on asking the right type of questions and suggested that double negatives and close-ended questions should be avoided. She also recommended following the taxonomy while questioning. If a student is not able to answer, rephrasing the question is the best way to help him/her learn instead of passing the question to others. The session ended with another short story followed by choice questions. She advised teachers to shed their pre-conceived notions and be open to learning.

 

The workshop drew warm appreciation from Shri S B Rao, Dean. He praised the Department for the painstaking preparation and team work that ensured the quality of the sessions.
