Addressing the students, Madhu Chitkara, pro-chancellor, Chitkara University, remarked, “It is very crucial to keep pace with the latest educational trends and techniques when it comes to teaching the learners of today. Understandably, it is a challenge for present-day teachers to come up with engaging lessons for these learners, who already consume a great amount of digital content on a daily basis. With mastering the principles of teaching and incorporating rewarding practices like movement and expressive arts therapy in education, teachers can help learners engage their mind, body, and emotions in the process of learning that shall undoubtedly bear promising outputs.”
