The whole workshop has been a rich learning experience for me, and it has increased curiosity and enthusiasm of learning more and teaching in a better way, and I wish I can get my students here for the whole day. Both facilitators have been kind enough and have really motivated us to learn more and the whole exercise was a complete success.

The idea of object based learning is the need of the hour as this will help in creating a bond of students with our rich cultural heritage.

One valuable takeaway for me was ways of getting students to engage with challenging standpoints/perspectives as a way of also building respect for pluralusm & simplicity.

During the Masterclass session, I was guided so well, I started to look at things differently… For visual learners and imaginative minds, museum learning can be very impactful. The understanding of the past can become much clearer through in a museum than learning through textbooks…My own curiosity has multiplied manifold. I have begun to relate the past with the present which I did not do earlier. I am very thankful to the resource people for giving me the opportunity to look at things differently and develop a new perspective.
