New Delhi [India], August 20 (ANI/ThePRTree): Cambridge University Press & Assessment India, India's leading education publisher and international exam board is proud to announce the launch of its Professional Development Programme (PDP) for teachers and schools.
Cambridge PDP is a self-paced online course for teachers looking to strengthen their teaching methodologies for a modern blended learning environment. The course offers 40 hours of learning content through eight lessons, each covering a core pedagogical concept. Mapped to the National Education Policy 2020 (NEP 2020) the programme incorporates guidelines on Continuous Professional Development.
Cambridge PDP covers eight key concepts: Student Engagement, Behaviour Management, Metacognition, Active Learning, Bloom's Taxonomy, Multiple Intelligences, Assessment for learning and Teaching with Digital Technologies in an Indian classroom learning environment.
Arun Rajamani, Managing Director, Cambridge University Press & Assessment, South Asia, said: "Last year has been incredibly challenging for teachers across the world. It has highlighted the need for a well-rounded and need-based development programme that bridges the gap between the existing and new-age blended teaching and learning techniques. We have developed the Cambridge Professional Development Programme (Cambridge PDP) to address this need.
At Cambridge, we believe that teachers are central to high-quality pedagogy, high attainment, and the well being of learners. And we are sure that Cambridge PDP will be a key stepping stone in the professional development journey of educators in India and beyond. The course marks an important step for Cambridge in our commitment to improve the skills and expertise of educators in India."
