Having discovered the advantages of the blended learning approach, it only makes sense to spread its accessibility to educators all over. Hence to bridge the awareness gap, Faculty Development Programme (FDP) is designed to discover, experiment and adapt this technique with much ease. Last year, we conducted three e-FDPs on the most trending technologies with a vision to transform the teaching-learning experience and restructure the learning curve of academicians. With this aim, the Advanced Computing Research Lab, Department of Computer Application under the aegis of Human Resource Development Centre (HRDC), Integral University, organized a Two-Week Blended Faculty Development Programme on “Next-Gen Computing Technologies, NGCT-2021” from 10th -25th November, 2021. The entire FDP was productively delivered via ILI Learning Management System. Through this platform, speakers from reputed institutes/companies exchanged their views on recent technological trends with faculty/research scholars spanning across India.
Registered Participants: 78
80+ hours of online active engagement through content-based learning, assignments & quizzes on ILI.
Participants were from 10 different states across India.
A "Certificate of Completion" was given to the participants after completing all activities of ten modules.
This sixteen-day-long FDP couldn't be possible without the constant support and motivation from Prof. (Dr.) Syed Aqeel Ahmad, Director, Human Resource Development Centre and Prof. (Dr.) Naim R. Kidwai, Deputy Director IQAC. All the FDP related activities like e-content, quizzes, and assignments were effectively well-coordinated by the Organizing Committee Members: Dr. Mohd. Waris Khan, Mr. Malik Shahzad Ahmad, Dr. Ausaf Ahmad, Dr. Asif Khan and Mr. Mohd. Faizan.
Overall, FDP management was artfully administered by FDP Coordinators: Dr. Sandeep Kumar Nayak, Dr. Tasneem Ahmed, Ms. Nashra Javed, and Mr. Farooq Ahmad, who arranged for quality speakers for this FDP and walked the extra mile to bridge the participants with the speakers. Also, they were instrumental in ensuring the punctuality of the program. All the participants were enthusiastic and responsive throughout the event. FDP concluded with excellent feedback and positive response from all participants as they found the sessions to be insightful, informative, inspiring, and enriching.
