Support schools, teachers, teacher training institutes and government organizations involved in education in strategizing teaching learning processes.
Adhyayan strongly believes in experiential learning approach at primary and middle school level and investigative or heuristic approach at secondary and higher secondary level.
A group of science educators was working under the name “Overall Educational Excellence Development Program (OEEDP)”. It was a non-formal group and was interested in disseminating and popularizing science at school and college level.
The group understood the immediate need to support schools with better teaching-learning ideas. We supported various NGOs too. In Rajkot, we designed a whole program for Saurashtra Education Foundation (SEF) which resulted into Seth Odhavaji Velji Community Science Centre. We also designed a science on wheels for SEF. Gujrat government in 1997-98 appreciated the work and designed an idea of District Science Centre.
We also developed the Sindhudurg District Science Centre and “Science on Wheels” for Vasundhara trust in Kudal (district Sindhudurg).
We started supporting ten different schools in Mumbaifrom the year 2000. Mr. Rameshji Kacholia started supporting the program. We registered our group in 2010 as Adhyayan Sanstha.
Adhyayan Sanstha supports schools, B.Ed., D.Ed. and degree colleges to upgrade teaching – learning processes. We had a joint program with IL & FS education division. We designed nearly 2500 challenge spots in teaching-learning process of science, mathematics and geography for IL & FS, which were then converted into graphics, videos, labs, kits and animations. We supported Core Technologies too for content development.
For last 10 years, we have concentrated on School Mathematics Improvement Program (SMIP), School Science Improvement Program (SSIP), School Geography as integration of Science and Mathematics and Geography Parks. Today we have a staff of 56 persons.
We own a small ofce premises in Kurunze (a village in Vikramgad block). we have a small ofce on rent in Mumbai (Bandra), Koloshi (Devdag block in Sindhudurg), Kudal (in Sindhudurg) & Bordi (in Dahanu Block Palghar District).
