    TAFIT is back again! The Teacher Foundation and Times Foundation are happy to announce the Teacher Awards For Innovative Teaching – 2014. These awards will be presented on 5 October, International Teachers Day 2014 at a special ceremony in Bangalore.


    Teaching today, more than ever before, is a complex endeavour. It makes several, often conflicting demands on the teacher – sound knowledge of subject matter; enthusiasm, a caring attitude, and a love of learning; a competence in classroom management techniques, formative assessment, differentiated instruction, and a desire to make a difference in the lives of young people. With all these qualities required, it's no wonder that it's hard to find good teachers. And the good teachers we find must be celebrated!

    A great teacher motivates his or her pupils to learn better using innovative strategies. TAFIT accordingly aims to recognize and acknowledge these great ideas tried by teachers in their classrooms. We are looking out for teachers who demonstrate exceptional subject knowledge, inspiring teaching methodologies, innovative use of technology, assessment and authentic pupil learning.

    We invite you to nominate a maximum of two teachers from your school for TAFIT.

     

    Scope of the Award
