A unidirectional teaching method is being increasingly substituted by a multidirectional group workshop method. Here the teacher becomes a group co-ordinator initiating work, nurturing students without the phobia of examinations and homework. Development of oral and written expression is emphasized upon. Home assignments are not a carry-over of classwork but oriented towards honing individual talents.
