After getting overwhelming responses to its pilot technology-enabled teachers training program, Centre of Excellence(CoE) of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has announced to launch free online teacher training programs.
“The move is aimed to enable teachers to teach better and lead improved learning outcomes, continuously instill new knowledge and skills as per the demand so as to keep them at par with what is expected,” read a statement issued by the CBSE.
The training program will also help teachers revise and refresh the knowledge that has already been provided to them in their regular training and make it more crisp and practical.
Each online training session will be for the one-hour duration. There will be no participation fee and participants will be awarded an e-certificate. Around 1200 online sessions are planned by the CoEs in May.
Earlier, the CoEs conducted more than 500 free-online training sessions for teachers on a pilot basis in April. More than 35,000 teachers and principals from various parts of the country and abroad participated in these programs.
