The ten day crash course train­ing on ba­sic skills for teach­ing and learn­ing was con­ducted by Paro Col­lege of Ed­u­ca­tion and Bhutan Nuns foun­da­tion with sup­port from UNFPA for the nuns.

The train­ing fo­cused on four ar­eas of teach­ing skills, teach­ing strate­gies, as­sess­ment for learn­ing and ba­sic skills in coun­selling and learn­ing process.

Fa­cil­i­ta­tors of the train­ing were lec­tur­ers from Paro Col­lege of Ed­u­ca­tion.

The train­ing also taught the par­tic­i­pants ba­sic coun­selling skills such as at­tend­ing skills, lis­ten­ing skill, speak­ing skills and ques­tion­ing skills. Par­tic­i­pants were also in­tro­duced to de­vel­op­men­tal and learn­ing the­o­ries which pro­vide par­tic­i­pants with vi­tal insight in un­der­stand­ing and ac­knowl­edg­ing the ex­is­tence of dif­fer­ent learn­ing styles and dif­fer­ent strength in their stu­dents.

The work­shop in­cluded lec­tures, dis­cus­sions, role play­ing and `hands-on’ ba­sic skills train­ing. The par­tic­i­pants en­gaged in vig­or­ous dis­cus­sion and learn­ing tasks such as writ­ing home works, ini­ti­at­ing group ac­tiv­i­ties and do­ing in­di­vid­ual and group pre­sen­ta­tion.
