According to a statement here, the workshop, which concluded on Thursday, was titled ‘Workshop on Content and Curriculum Development in the Spirit of NEP 2020’.
The workshop brought together experts, educators and stakeholders to deliberate on crucial aspects of curriculum design and implementation of the NEP 2020.
