Four Week AICTE approved FDP by IIT Bombay on - Use of ICT in Education for Online and Blended Learning

This Workshop is conducted by Prof. Deepak B Phatak from May 2nd, 2016 to July 10th, 2016


IIT Bombay has been involved with distance synchronous education, since year 2000. We have trained over 1,00,000 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.

To meet this requirement IIT Bombay has specially designed a Faculty Development Program (FDP) on "Use of ICT in Education for Online and Blended Learning ". This FDP is designed as a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course), with some face-to-face sessions at Remote Centres. It will be conducted beginning from 2 May 2016. Completion Certificates will be awarded by IIT Bombay to those participants, who successfully complete all online assessments, meaningfully participate in face-to-face sessions, and submit the prescribed team- assignment.
