Overview and Objective

The overall scenario of higher education in India does not match with the global quality standards. With the unprecedented growth of institutions in the past 2 decades across the nation, there is a significant shortage of qualified and motivated faculty. The most important resource that any higher education institution is its faculty. They share knowledge and teach necessary skills needed for the students to face future challenges. An institution having the best faculty who are skilled in latest technologies will top the charts in coming years. The most important and urgent reform needed in education is to transform it based on the needs and aspirations of the people and thereby making it the powerful instrument of social, economic and cultural transformation necessary for the realization of the national goals. Conventional forms of teaching and assessment techniques will not be sufficient to cop up with ever changing modern education. Faculty should be equipped with new challenges associated with modern teaching and learning.

Faculty training and pedagogy sessions provides a platform for improving teaching learning outcomes. Technology-based teaching and discussion forums are essential tools that can improve student-to-teacher interaction. This workshop consists of lecture sessions, case studies, panel discussions and group activity. It brings faculty teaching in various technical institutes in India under one umbrella and share the best practices in teaching and learning. The program is intended to faculty in computer science and engineering, electrical and electronics engineering, electronics and communication engineering and allied branches. However, faculty from other branches are also welcome.
