Participatory Engaging Technique (PET)

To assist educational institutions and undertaking new challenges, the Human Resources Development Institute (HRDI) has been working for quite some time in developing a learning method which will support the teachers to empower their students. HRDI wishes to partner with those who are interested to slowly but surely make transition to the new paradigm of Learning Experiences for their students. In the new scheme, faculty become the designers of powerful learning environments, and every employee of the institution, not just faculty, has a role to play in creating the learner-centered environment. However, the challenge is therefore to translate the curriculum topics into powerful learning situations for the students.

Human Resource Development Institute (HRDI) focuses on developing participatory and engaging teaching (PET) techniques that help to bring out the creativity and lifelong learning competence in Bangladeshi students.

What to expect from HRDI – a FREE 3 hour Workshop

To acquaint the Principal and Teachers with the PET methodology, the school is invited to attend a three-hour interactory workshop at a location preferred by the principal, i.e., at the school location or at the premises of HRDI. An external location would allow the participants an outing and concentrate. Participants at this workshop will have the chance to explore innovative ways to engage students in the learning process.

After attending the introductory workshop, the teachers can attend either a Six-day Certification Course at a fee or complete the whole course online free of charges.
