Art of Learning is the brain child of Ms. Payal Mahajan. Payal is an educationist with over 25 years of experience in the field of education and has been involved with schools in India, Indonesia and Canada. She has worked in various capacities with schools offering both national curriculum as well as international curriculum. She is also a member of Ontario College of Teachers.
Payal has been instrumental in the implementation of international curriculum in schools in two different continents (Asia and North America), and has in-depth working knowledge, experience and requirements of CIE, IBNA and IBAP. Her training in India and Canada and her work with schools has given her a global perspective and an insight into best practices and key success factors which she is able to customise to the requirements of individual schools. Since her return to India in December 2008, she has undertaken a few advisory assignments with international schools to help develop their systems and capabilities.
Payal has co-authored a series of five General Awareness Activity books for Grades 1 to 5 and edited a set of two workbooks in compliance with the new curriculum for a leading publishing house of India (1999 – 2000). She has also been an assistant-editor for a non-governmental organization working in the field of environmental conservation – Friends of the Doon Society.
