Symposium being organized for school teachers.

KARACHI -- In order to foster good teaching practices, a symposium is being organized for the school teachers.

An announcement here on Saturday said that the theme would be ' Promoting student success: Connect, Inspire, Transform'.

The symposium would be organized by the Oxford University Press (OUP) Pakistan as a part of its on-going support to education and good teaching practices.

It is being held in Azad Jammu and Kashmir for the first time and will be conducted by OUP authors and trainers from Pakistan and UK.

The objective behind organizing the symposium is to effectively address the need for teachers to play the role of a catalyst in transforming their students' thinking and learning processes by inspiring greater curiosity and broader inquiry among them.

Around 200 teachers from 26 cities and towns across Pakistan will attend the two separate events which will provide the participants and trainers a valuable platform to share ideas, experiences, and best teaching practices, an OUP Pakistan official said.

Around 34 sessions will be held showcasing many new OUP textbook series, digital products, and learning resources developed for pre-primary, primary, secondary, and O level. Effective teaching of subjects like English, History, Geography, Social Studies, Mathematics, Science, and Urdu using these resources will be discussed in these sessions.

Trainers at the symposiums include Hayley Sutton, Eithne Gallagher, and Michael Pearson from OUP UK; Nauman Jan, Ismat Riaz, Arwa Khuzaima, Faizuddin, Shazia Asad, and Salima Hashmi from Pakistan.

On 15 October, Sardar Masood Khan, the President of AJK, will be meeting symposium participants, the OUP Pakistan official said.
