ISBF Conducts LSE's Curricula-based Training Workshops for Students in Bangladesh

Si TeamThe Indian School of Business & Finance (ISBF) recently conducted London School of Economics & Political Science's (LSE) curricula based training workshops to vernacular medium students in Dinajpurn, Bangladesh. Held at the Tulip International School on March 25,500 students from six institutions (Saint Philip's High School & College, Dinajpur High School, Dinajpur Police Line High School, Dinajpur Collectorate High School, and Dinajpur Govt. City College), both public and private, participated in the Playnomics workshop, and Md. Nezamul Islam, Principal, Dinajpur High School was the chief guest of the occasion.

"It was an overwhelming experience, to see LSE's emphasis on application-oriented education resonate as much with students in a remote northern town of Bangladesh as it does in top schools in leading Indian cities. The students learnt essential life skills such as time management, teamwork and negotiation, and also imbibed the spirit of taking their learning beyond textbooks. The teachers and school
heads present also deeply appreciated the input, and requested that we return to conduct similar training workshops for faculty members," says Chiraag Mehta, Assocaite Director, ISBF.

This was a first of its kind opportunity for most of the students to participate in modules of experiential learning, especially for the students of government institutions whose curricula base is primarily vernacular. The students were found enthralled during the workshop and found the interactive sessions to be helpful in inculcating a spirit of inquiry in them, as is the core motto of LSE teaching pedagogy followed by ISBF. At the end of the event, a majority of the participants expressed their desire to participate in similar kind of workshops at regular intervals.

Speaking on the occasion, Tulen Hansdak, Founder & Principal, Tulip International School & College, says, "I witnessed all activities involving the workshop conducted by the representatives of ISBF that follows academic direction from LSE and is an affiliate centre of the University of London. The sessions, lively and engaging, were later academically driven by Mr Chiraag Mehta from ISBF. It was a highly joyful and exciting workshop. Multiple schools from Dinajpur that participated in the workshop liked it and want ISBF to be back again".

Founded in 2006 with a vision to deliver world-class education o Indian students, ISBF is one among the very few Featured Teaching Institutions of LSE across the world and enjoys University of London's Affiliate Centre status.
