Jesuit Education believes in the process of constant and continuous formation of its staff. The staff of Loyola Degree College organized a two day orientation for its staff on June 14 and 15, 2018. The seven habits of highly effective behavior which relates dependence, independence and interdependence to synergize private and public victory was the main topic of discussion on the first day. The second day saw Ignatian Praxis amalgamated with Paulo Freire’s “Critical Pedagogy”, influenced by both critical theory and Jesuit Higher Education Practice. Reflection and action concerning the world, banking model, transformative model and human affirming model of education were topics of interaction on the second day.
