The classes in Jaipur were held in The Palace School- a school set up by the Princess of Jaipur with classes in the palace grounds! We had a peacock strutting around the school grounds one day showing off his plumage and the view from the Principals office is of a fort on the hill.
The classes went well- we had our first male participant- a college lecturer- who had a background in psychology. In all there were four lecturers who are taking the course so they can strat a Resource Room in the school attached to their college allowing them then to offer training for students in Special Educational Needs.
Participants comments after the initial contact classes included: "I did not expect the classes to be this informative. It was wonderful" (Jyoti) The session on lesson planning was done well and will help me to organize and sensitise ( Aarti) The session on learning styles was very informative; pedagogy employed excellent (Roopa)
