Faculty Development Programs (FDP)
We have initiated series of Faculty Development Programs (FDP) for their teaching staffers that will give them a deeper insight to reflect on teaching practices and portfolio building. In addition to this educators will have an opportunity to explore the focus areas of pedagogy, course and assessment design, professional communication, language and culture of the classroom, as well as their reflections on teaching. These sessions will use the most relevant research on how students learn in the HE context as well as broaden their range of teaching skills, and help them create inclusive teaching strategies in their unique context. In addition to this, these sessions will help them chalk out their teaching philosophy and teaching portfolio which details their experience and critical reflections on teaching and learning. As educators it is critical to have a constant upgradation of skills and must be willing to acquire new skills and innovate in order to stay abreast of the market developments and through these FDP series, we offer a variety of faculty development sessions catering to this very area.
