The aim of this Seminar is to suggest new ways of learning - teaching and how these ways could be realized in our educational institutions.

Competition: are children being denied their childhood.
Mapping the format of education.
Motivation & punishment.
Wide gaps - developing capabilities for employability.
Brilliance Vs burnout.
Locking in values.
Thinking big - entrepreneurship.
Stress out factor Vs success factor.
After each session there would be enough time for open session to clarify thoughts and conflicts.
