One of my favorite modules was blooms taxonomy which helped me to apply not only in my regular class teaching but also helped in to find the levels of students through assessments and evaluation. Our face to face classes are also lead by an excellent trainer who had enough knowledge and experience in the field of education. Usually, as a person, I am a silent hard worker not liking to open up easily for any sort of open discussions but this programme is helping me to come out from this fear and participate actively in the group discussions which is helping me to gain confidence to a certain extent. I am really thankful to Mr. Rishabh who is initiating this kind of discussions in the classes. I would definitely suggest this programme for those enthusiasts who are willing to gain and apply knowledge in regular teaching and learning.
Would like to share my feedback on the course conducted by you and your colleagues. I initiated my qualification with Pedagogical Transformations to get a teaching qualification but it has given me so much more. The course has a unique approach of mixing theoretical knowledge with practical implementation and action items to be used in the classroom. The content provided on the Suraasa platform is well structured and unlike other online courses is engaging and interesting. The case studies and assignments have helped me to build a new perspective towards using pedagogical tools and make my teaching and it's impact measurable. The trainer has good knowledge of the topics being taught and engages everyone in the discussions. He is also reachable and responsive at all times. Really enjoying the classroom sessions as well as the content on Suraasa app. Overall, it is a great experience and I have recommended your institution to my school and to friends from other schools as well.
