TRC recently conducted a two-day workshop, entitled “Importance of Observation and Assessment in ECE” at the Fatimiyah Education Network’s (FEN) Early Childhood Education Centre. The workshop, held on the 6th and 7th of August 2007, was part of TRC’s ongoing teacher training and development programme for FEN. 26 pre-primary teachers from FEN’s Britto Road and Kharadar Early Years Centres attended the workshop.

The engaging workshop content and design empowered participants to explore their roles and responsibilities in the process of observation. The participants actively participated in discussions and activities and gained hands-on experience of putting observational theory into practice.

The workshop was interactive and the participants were enthusiastic and eager to learn. It is this kind of synergy between workshop leaders and participants that results in true learning.
