The Buzz @ TTF

Whew! What a topsy-turvy and difficult year it has been for all schools, teachers and most importantly students. But from crisis comes change and for many many schools it has meant a foray into online learning. This hasn't been without problems, but it's a big step towards reimagining our teaching and pedagogy. A huge amount of work needs to be done to skill and support our teachers for a new paradigm of schools in the years to come – a paradigm that will necessarily include a significant amount of digital learning.

Maya Menon shares TTF's experience this past year.


Heads' Net Webinar

The National Education Policy 2020 needed to be decoded for school leaders and teachers. Meeta Sengupta, FRSA, educator, researcher and writer, did an admirable job when she spoke on The Promise of NEP 2020 for Schools at TTF's Heads' Net Webinar held on 4th March, 2021. The event saw over 700 participants from across India and a few countries from the Middle East.

School Improvement at Raigad District – Sudhagad Pali

The School Improvement Programme in Sudhagad Pali is a holistic and coherent professional development experience that includes a few vital training sessions, both online and offline, for teachers/heads and extensive school-based support to them; including demo lessons in their schools, to help them recognise the full potential of student-centred learning practices, despite existing constraints. This is aimed to embed better teaching practices in their classrooms. In order to sustain the changes in schools, we have re-designed the School Improvement model to engage and empower the Government Officials – DIET and Cluster Heads.
Coaching for School Success (CFSS)
General Batch

With the aim of setting up a coaching culture in their schools, teachers from Vedavalli schools in Chennai & Ranipet and Govt schools in Tripura are participating in the CFSS programme. This 150 hour programme prepares senior teachers/coordinators and Heads to become change agents in their school so that they are able to foster and guide effective teaching practices in their institutions.

Coaching for School Success

The Online CFSS comprises 26 synchronous sessions of 2 hours each; pre & post session tasks, assignments and coaching support. Sandhya Guruprasad,from Sri Kumarans’ says, "I have understood that good communication and non-judgemental feedback are major factors of coaching."

HeadLAMP - General Batch

 The second online batch of HeadLAMP for 2020-21 culminated with a Capstone Project. School leaders explored a wide range of contemporary school leadership roles, responsibilities and challenges across 18 sessions of TTF's signature school leadership course.

Rekha Chari from Mallya Aditi International School shares, "The course was well designed and delivered. It was interactive by design and kept us engaged and learning throughout. We stand informed and enlightened about our roles as leaders and the difference we can make in enriching the ethos and culture of teaching-learning in an amazing school like ours."
