  • Faculty Development Workshop, Date: 29th March 2011 more

    The Institute organized a Faculty Development Workshop on renovating teaching methodology on 29th March 2011. The workshop was conducted by well-known corporate trainer Mr Himanshu Joshi. The workshop focussed on how to make teaching more student-oriented as well as how to evolve a student-centric pedagogy. The resource person started with posing questions like what is the purpose of education and what are the aspirations of the students who come to the college. These questions led to discussion on teaching-learning process and methods. The workshop covered many learning principles from Confucius to Bob Pipe. The learning principles tried to put things from learners' perspective. The resource person talked about different personality 'types' of learners and stressed that although the 'types' are not water-tight categories, they still can give an insight which can be useful in preparing methodology for different kind of learners. In order to demonstrate effective teaching methodology, the film Black was screened. The workshop ended with the assertion that a teacher's job is not to give education but to create a desire for learning among the students.
