While superb infrastructure, lush green lawns and well equipped classrooms are synonymous with a good school, the actual heart of any school is its dedicated, committed, sincere and well trained faculty.
Staff who consider teaching to be not just another profession but a vocation. A calling from the Almighty where tender, young, impressionable minds of our learners are encouraged to discover, experiment and forge new pathways in student led Inquiry based learning and able facilitators who belong to P.L.C(professional learning communities).
These communities of teachers, belonging to their respective fields across grades and levels, collaborate together with a shared understanding of pooling resources, sharing best practices and conducting ethical dialogues. All within a safe, comfortable and honest sharing environment.
PLC-( PROFESSIONAL LEARNING COMMUNITIES)
The PLC meeting is scheduled on every working Saturday (online or F2F) where the teachers across DPSG schools meet, share and collaborate their work with respect to different subjects/ grades. The PLCs play a crucial and highly facilitative role in fueling school improvement, initiating and implementing school reforms and promoting innovations. It is a powerful new way to work together, collaborate and co-create, learning by encouraging the collective knowledge and experiences of the teachers. PLCs are directed to strive for promoting a positive impact on the classroom practices, fostering the culture of inquiry and reflection, co-creating and collaborating to contribute towards construction of knowledge and developing a learning resource centre for different grades/subjects. It also facilitates sharing and disseminating best practices in a discipline and creating a reliable space for the teachers to engage themselves constructively for their professional development.
PLC – OVERVIEW
DPSG strongly believes in investing in training of the teachers through workshops and seminars to keep them updated and upgraded. Our teachers, during last few months, have attended different programs related to their professional development.
