Macmillan Education, a renowned publishing house, celebrating its 126 years of existence in India, conducted an Education Conclave City Workshop for School  Teachers of Kohima at hotel De Oriental Grand, Kohima with well-known curriculum developer and a pedagogy trainer, Gargi Sen from Kolkata, as the resource person on August 11.

It may be mentioned that more than 20 schools in Nagaland use Macmillan books from Nursery to Class 12.
The Resource Person spoke about active teaching, enhancing learning skills and managing classes, adolescent management, motivation and also discussed other topics. Sen highlighted the challenges faced from the adolescents and the path to finding solutions to these challenges through various activities.
The resource person also shared on the importance of developing communication skills through activities tailored to this end. Sen encouraged the teachers to make classroom atmospheres lively and learning friendly. She advised the school teachers to work on the strength of the students rather than pointing out their weaknesses. She asked the teachers to teach students “from their heart what they have learnt from their head.”
The marketing manager of Macmillan, Raju Ganguly introduced the SNF@School – a program that promotes the consumption of balanced and hygienic diets in schools, through continuous engagement with students, teachers and parents. It is a nationwide awareness campaign brought to schools in collaboration with Macmillan Education, and Food Safety and Securities Authority of India (FSSAI).
Speaking at the sidelines of the program, Ganguly told Nagaland Post that book publishers want feedback to know the needs of, and understand, teachers and Macmillan book users.  He said that Macmillan has been conducting many workshops and getting feedback from various states of the country including North Eastern states.
The workshop was attended by 40 teachers from 16 schools in Kohima and  also representatives from Nagaland board of school education. At the end of the session the participants browsed through the Macmillan books on various subjects, on display.
