Foundational Teachers’ Capacity Building Programme is Organised by Oxford University Press

Delhi — Oxford University Press India, a division of the University of Oxford, gave teachers in Delhi a training on how to apply NCF 2023 for mathematics in an efficient and preparatory manner. Renowned author Ashalata Badami of OUP gave a presentation during the workshop on the updated and revamped edition of its flagship mathematics series, “New Enjoying Mathematics.”

The National Curriculum Framework (NCF) 2023 and New Education Policy (NEP) 2020 aligned mathematics course takes an activity-oriented approach to help students overcome their arithmetic anxiety and improve their cognitive, creative, and physical development.

The event, which was attended by more than 150 primary school teachers in New Delhi, presented them to maths experiential learning resources that are recommended by NEP 2020 and detailed in NCF 2023. Badami gave a demonstration of the “Experience with concrete objects, language, picture, and symbol” (ELPS) concept-building technique. She advised using basic bar graphs as a new method of problem solving and suggested logical thinking games like Mastermind and Blind Tic-Tac-Toe.

Aashalata Badami, who has over 30 years’ experience in designing maths programmes and training teachers to implement them successfully said, “This revision focuses on current trends in maths education, addressing the immediate context of a child’s world while incorporating 21st-century skills such as communication, creativity, critical thinking, and collaboration.”

It is important to note that OUP previously worked with the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to create Think-Share-Learn-Practice (TSLP), a research-based capacity-building programme that equips teachers with skills in curriculum design and experiential learning that is deeply ingrained in Indian culture.
