Best Practice I- Faculty Enrichment Sessions

Educational institutions are knowledge sharing hubs while faculty enrichment sessions are a significant step towards keeping the teaching faculty updated about the latest technology in teaching and research. Such sessions promote a culture of knowledge-sharing, encourage research publications and enhance teaching skills. They also motivate the teachers to operate various research software. Well educated and skilled faculty are the strong bases of the new India, which is not only fit India, but also atmanirbhar India.

The efficiency of human resource in higher education improves with continuous updating of innovative teaching methods coupled with hands on experience of various software. The Faculty Enrichment Programs organised by the Faculty Development Research Committee (FDRC) at S.S.Dempo College built a strong foundation of an educational system ensuring quality education. Since academic year 2017, regular faculty enrichment sessions have been accorded priority. The sessions promote pedagogical skills and research culture to keep pace with fast changing learning environment.
