Personal Development

“ The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be ” - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Personal development of learners @COE - BGSIAS

BGSIAS offers a holistic approach to teaching and learning with a keen focus on developing intercultural awareness. Holistic education addresses the development of the whole person at the cognitive and affective levels. Its emphasis is on extending the education of the learner beyond the confines of the classroom. The holistic approach leads the learners into new areas of thinking, helps to broaden their personal and critical thinking and appreciate the world around them, and to realize the importance that relationships have within all these considerations. Further, holistic education has the capacity to empower learners to develop the capability to think differently, creatively, and to reflect on their own values.
Apart from developing academic capabilities in a learner, COE @BGSIAS ensures personal development. One of the main aims is to engage the learners in a process of creative exploration and self-discovery. When learners are reflective of the learning, their ability to make informed choices and decisions increases manifold. Being academically strong, physically fit, emotionally intelligent, socially active, and spiritually connected automatically makes a learner successful.

Personal Development

Personal development is the process of understanding and developing oneself to achieve one’s fullest potential. It is vital in a person’s growth, success, and fulfillment. People often hold higher regard for academic and professional achievement and neglect personal growth. Personal development means investing in yourself so that you’ll be able to manage yourself effectively, no matter what life might bring in your way.
Personal development planning is the process of making an action plan based on self-awareness, values, reflection, goal-setting. The plan may be for personal development within the context of a career, education, relationship, or for self-improvement. It is a way to assess your skills and qualities. It allows you to consider your aim and set goals, both long and short term, to understand and maximize your potential.
The five areas of personal development are:

  1. Cerebral development (academic) emphasizes the skills – communication, comprehension, critical thinking, and curiosity to augment academic learning.
  2. Physical development is focused on health, fitness, and sports.
  3. Social development motivates students to get involved in their communities, work towards common goals, become self-aware, and develop social awareness.
  4. Spiritual development focuses on core values, awareness, and practice, rather than on a particular religion.
  5. Emotional development encourages learners to pay attention to their emotions to identify, understand, and express them positively and productively.
