Effective Teaching in the 21st Century
Teaching in the 21st century is not a skill; it’s a mindset shift. Educator development needs to be
long-term and continuous in order to be effective While our curriculum covers all the
essentials—reading, math, science, history, arts, and humanities — seen from global, theoretical and practical levels, Educators training is a cornerstone of
achieving quality education. It also provides opportunities for a wide range of experiences,
from trying various forms of visual and performing arts (such as mural painting, above) to taking
overnight camping trips. The Well's approach by educators encourages every Schillerite to try
everything, but also allows them to dive deep into areas of personal interest. Through various
workshops our educators team learn that trying something new doesn't necessarily mean they
ultimately have to be good at it, but that exploration is key to discovering strengths and addressing
weaknesses, as well as broadening horizons.
An Educator skill set Workshop is great for exposing them to new ideas, but true change in the classroom requires long-term work.
Schiller allows educators to own and drive the change. They embody the culture and the purpose of Schiller when properly supported and inspired, will transform schillerite with their energy and ideas around global learning.
Schiller’s main modalities for Educator Skillset Programme :-
- In-Service Workshop
- Creativity Workshop
- Virtual Training Workshop
- Brain-Drain Workshop
- I-Can-Do Program (Risk Management Training)
- Digital Literacy
Each school is different, and therefore we employ different educator training strategies
according to each context. Often, we use one strategy to support another — an In-Service Workshop. The diversity and range of the opportunities educators have for learning make writing
meaningfully about inservice educator education difficult. Educators learn from many activities, formal and informal. They learn from practice itself when stopping to consider a struggling student's response to a
homework question, conversations in the hallways and lunchrooms with other educators, observing in a peer's classroom, results from a supervisor or mentor's visit, reading, attending conferences, district workshops, university courses, and in all sorts of other often unanticipated ways. Each of these activities may refresh a educator's commitment to teaching and expand their understanding of the work of teaching, or they may not.
Our interactive workshops leverage the faculty’s passions and help all educators globalize their courses in relevant and meaningful ways. Best Practices in Global Learning (all disciplines and grade levels) –
- Development and Assessment of Global Competencies
- Introduction to Project-Based Learning (PBL)
- Purpose Intensive: How Can We Help our Schillerites to explore and Articulate Purpose?
These full-day workshops are generally 2 – 3 hours long so that there is time for coaching of grade-level teams, academic departments, and/or individual educator looking for additional support, later on conducted with the School’s Board and Parents’ Association. In-service workshop with relevant courses and activities in which a serving educator may participate to upgrade their professional knowledge, skills, and competence in the teaching profession. Therefore, it encompasses all forms of education and training given to a educator who is already on the job of teaching and learning.
Creative teaching involves the development of a creative environment. Creative expression of both students and educator should be nurtured. Creativity Workshops for educators to gain fresh ideas to liven up classes. It’s an
interactive, experiential workshop dedicated to helping educators and their students learn how to be more creative. It is started with a series of simple and effective exercises aimed at keeping the creative juices flowing both in the classroom and in one’s personal life. The Creativity Workshop offers professional development
courses for educators creating a unique experience that combines learning and association with peers by
transferring their ideas of modern education, activities, practicals and how educators can deliver their lectures
The Creativity Workshop has helped educators & Schillerites:
- Develop creativity and innovation in math, IT, the arts, creative writing, languages, life skills and science.
- Creative teaching practices are both effective and innovative in achieving a desired outcome – whether it is acquisition of skills, knowledge or understanding.
- Students are doing more than just learning the curricular content and educators are doing more than just teaching the content.
- For educators to build in formative assessment activities to their lessons.
- Get over writers’ block and combat fears that stifle self expression and new ideas.

Virtual Training Workshop
Schiller is providing training to our passionate and experienced educators.The aim of this workshop is trained educators through the process of globalizing their teaching practice and creating learning
showcases that embody the future of learning at their school.
A handful of learning showcases can accelerate change by energizing and inspiring students, parents, and other educators.Virtual reality educator training can be facilitated in a comfortable and individual virtual space where educators can practice pedagogical approaches and new ways of integrating with new technology.
Our Educators take on challenging projects, such as the design of a new reading and writing course, fall and spring PBL experiences, or a school-wide video conference event. Educators understand Project-Based Learning and other student-centered pedagogies, design and assess global competencies, develop new collaborative partnerships, identify key themes in global learning, network and find global speakers and partners, plan global events, and employ video conferencing strategies.
Schiller runs life- and career-changing Brain-Drain program for educators. These programs allow educators to be students again and share their ideas with other in
groups. They leverage the group’s wisdom and experience for deep reflections around personal and professional growth.The workshop focused on knowledge – based learning. It is a transformational Educator Development skill. This opportunity will allow educators the time, as well as intentional support, to create and refine one or two PBL units to be integrated into the curriculum.
Educators are being asked to change their teaching as never before and the transition is creating big challenge. In the future of learning,educators are connecting learning to the world.

Educators often lack not only digital skills. Schiller conduct various workshops for our educators so that they learn how to conduct project-based inquiry using a variety of digital texts, tools and
technologies, which will help create challenging and engaging learning opportunities for Schillerites.
