Registration Closed List of participants


Online educational methodology, and flipped-classrooms with associated pedagogy of active learning, have quickly emerged as the mainstay of effective education in this century. However, most of our teachers lack skills and competencies for proper and effective use of ICT in education. It is thus an urgent national requirement that all our teachers, at least those teaching in our professional colleges, are empowered to use technology effectively, to enhance the quality of education.

To meet this requirement, IIT Bombay has specially designed the two-part FDP course. This was first offered in 2017. The second course under this FDP, with a focus on technology, is titled “Pedagogy for Online and Blended Teaching-Learning Process” and is designed as a Blended MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) – FDP201x. There will be two weekend face-to-face sessions at the Remote Centres. The course will be offered from 3 May 2018 till 30 May 2018.

Who Should Attend

As this FDP is not subject-specific, teaching faculty from any domain, including faculty from management institutes and polytechnics, can participate. Teachers registered in a Masters or a PhD program, during their employment as a teacher, can also participate.

Participants, who have not certified in the earlier FDPs (2016, 2017), are eligible to participate in the FDP.

Duration and Venue

This four week FDP consists of three components as follows:

1. Online work by individual participants: Each participant is expected to access the online platform, using a PC at home or office, on any convenient day and time during the week, with an online test every week. Each participant has to spend 6 to 8 hours of efforts per week during this component of the FDP. This is equivalent to one day of work in a regular FDP. This activity will be spread over 4 calendar weeks: From Thursday 3 May 2018 to Wednesday 30 May 2018.

2. Face-to-Face interaction: Participants will have to physically attend these sessions at their chosen or designated Remote Centres (RCs), established across the country by IIT Bombay. Focused interactive sessions with the participating teachers, will be conducted by the faculty from IIT Bombay. The discussions and local tutorial sessions will be moderated by the Workshop Coordinators appointed at each RC. This activity will be conducted on the weekends of: 12 & 13 May 2018 and 26 & 27 May 2018.

3. Team Assignment: The participants have to form a team of 2-3 members and prepare an Open Educational Resource based on their learning in the FDPs. This would be submitted for peer review. Submission of Team Assignment is mandatory for certification.

Criteria for Certification

IIT Bombay will award certificates only to those participants who: successfully complete prescribed online tests with minimum 50% aggregate score, meaningfully participate in face-to-face sessions, and submitted the team assignment. AICTE has recognized this as a Two-week FDP.

Course Fee

There is no extra fees to be paid by the participants who have qualified in FDP101x in 2018. Participants who had attended previous FDPs, but were unable to complete can request the Remote Centre for a waiver in registration fees of Rs.1000. However the final decision on the application will be that of the remote centre. For food and stay, the participant will have to bear extra charges as per the rates advertised by the centre. This is optional for the participants; only if they wish to avail the facility.

How to Apply

The registration for FDP201x - "Pedagogy for Online and Blended Teaching-Learning Process" will be limited to participants, who successfully complete the FDP101x.
