The KCEF College of Education, Pulwama, Kashmir was the chosen for WISCOMP’s Hum Kadam project outreach from 24-25 March, 2015 where 28 educators (largely drawn from the faculty of KCEF college and colleges in surrounding areas) and 56 youth (from high schools and colleges from Pulwama and Srinagar) came together. With a view to provide a fillip to the needs expressed by the educators and youth, the central themes in the conclave focused on: i) leadership skills for high school youth, ii) entrepreneurial skills for college and university youth and, iii) critical thinking and dialogue skills for educators. Three concurrent workshops of two-day duration were organized for each of the three groups of participants. “Educating Beyond Examinations: A Workshop on Critical Thinking” brought together Kashmiri teachers.
Concurrently, “Transformational Leadership” workshops were held with postgraduate students and school students enterprise.
