Instructions for Enrolling in the workshop Participating Remote Centers

Registration Closed List of participants


IIT Bombay has been involved with distance synchronous education, since year 2000. We have trained over 1,36,000 teachers, in partnership with IIT Kharagpur, under the T10KT (Train 10 Thousand Teachers at a time) project sponsored by NMEICT. All training workshops so far, were on specific subjects of Engineering and Science Education, most of which are taught as core courses in our colleges and universities. These programs have been beneficial to the participating faculty.

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.

Who Should Attend

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

Duration and Venue

This Two 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 5 calendar weeks: From Thursday 14 September 2017 to Thursday 12 October 2017.
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: 16 & 17 September 2017 and 7, 8 October 2017.
3. Team Assignment: Teams of 3 to 5 members will be formed from amongst the participants at each RC. Each team is required to create and review the assignment, and submit the same online. Here again, each participant has to spend adequate effort, albeit in a coordinated manner with other members of the team.

Criteria for Certification

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