Dr. Bhavna Chibber, Principal, Laburnum Public School, Gurugram, Emphasizes on Skill Based Learning

 “Skills are unique, indigenous, and the educators, who are the curators in the classroom, must know what kind of skill to develop in each learner,” says Dr. Bhavna Chibber, Principal, Laburnum Public School, Gurugram, in an Interview with Pratik Ghosh, Content Writer, ArdorComm Media Group at the ‘New Normal – Education Leadership Summit & Awards 2023’ #ELSANewDelhi #ELSAGurugram

How are you feeling to witness the New Normal Education Leadership Summit and Award?

It was an awesome experience to listen to all the dignified personalities. We have learned so many things here, and the discussions were so interesting that we thought this kind of conference should be held for our leaders. These kinds of forums are essential. I’m thankful to ArdorComm Media for providing the opportunity to educators to spread their wings, learn, and take the lead. In this new normal, adaptability and flexibility are crucial skills, and now is the time when we’re preparing our learners to thrive in this world. So, thanks to ArdorComm Media for providing this platform for leaders to share, learn, collaborate, and grow.

What’s your take on skill-based learning and the multi-disciplinary approach in education?

There are two different things: skill-based learning and the multi-disciplinary approach. When we talk about Saksham, we follow a 5S philosophy: Saksha, Saksham, Samarth, Shodak, and Sanskar. There’s a thin line difference between Saksham and Samarth. For example, consider car driving. I drive a car, so it’s easy for me to understand how the clutch works, how to change gears, etc. But how competent am I? That’s called Saksham. Skill development is about preparing learners for the future, not just for the near future, but for the years ahead. Skills are unique, indigenous, and the educators, who are the curators in the classroom, must know what kind of skill to develop in each learner. Regarding the interdisciplinary approach, terms like interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary, and transdisciplinary have been integrated. Collaborative projects are a key strategy to enhance the interdisciplinary approach on the school campus.

Any message for the ArdorComm Median on its 2nd anniversary?
