KIDS Voice Social

Teaching as an occupation has always been respected but unfortunately, in spite of the scopes for improvement, teachers training still remains as one of the most exploited academic fields in India. A Forum has been made to voice against this exploitation and this Forum’s purpose is to provide a new light to teacher training in India.

The facilities and remuneration packages given to teachers have improved to a large extent in the recent past. But research and development on teachers’ training has not improved and has remained stagnant for many years. Even though some great academicians live and work in Kolkata, there is no appropriate platform for them to share and enhance their knowledge and skills.

Asian College of Teachers is dedicated to improve the standards of teacher training and incorporate the latest advancements in teaching and educational field in its curriculums. ACT has formed this Forum specifically for this reason and warmly welcomes teachers, academicians and professionals to be members. Regular meetings of this Forum would help in sharing and gaining knowledge for everyone.

Activities of the Board

  • The core team is dedicated to share their expertise and knowledge and comprises of 25 to 30 teachers and professionals.
  • ACT attempts to organize at least two conferences of academicians in a year.
  • One of the conferences is held at the international level probably involving academicians from different countries.
  • ACT intends to start e-Magazine to allow the venture to get more exposure globally.
  • The plan is to put in place workshops for teachers to acquaint them with the latest advancements in the field of education and enhance their skills by mutual sharing of knowledge and experience.
