MALANKARA MAR THOMA SYRIAN CHURCH HIGHER EDUCATION COMMISSION

One day Workshop for Teachers in Colleges

“CHANGING BENCHMARKS IN TEACHING AND LEARNING”

Date: 11-02-2017

Venue: St. Thomas College, Kozhencherry

The domain of higher education is undergoing major structural changes in the State of Kerala amidst persistent debates on the basic objectives and associated operational issues. We are moving away from the traditional to modular approaches in conveying information and engaging more effective instructional vehicles for knowledge production. The transition from a teacher centred to a learner-cantered paradigm of education is no longer a dream, but a reality.  In view of the sweeping thematic and structural realignments, the Malankara Mar Thoma Syrian Church Higher Education Commission is organising a One-Day workshop on 11th February, 2017. The workshop is intended for enabling the faculty to have a critical grasp of the various issues connected with Teaching – Learning and to develop their short-term and long term perspectives and strategies.

Dr. M R Kurup, a well accomplished Resource Person for training NAAC Peer Team and a renowned expert on Quality Assurance Systems will be the chief resource person to deal with a host of themes such as Academic Audit, Accountability in Higher Education, Best Practices in Higher Education and Benchmarks of Good Teaching.

It is hoped that teachers will make use of the resources from the workshop for formulating individual-level and institutional-level strategies in the process of moving towards a Knowledge Society. We request the Principals and IQAC coordinators of the various colleges to utilise the opportunity in their preparations for the next cycle of NAAC accreditation. Kindly ensure the active participation of the motivated faculty in workshop. Kindly be in constant touch with the organisers of the workshop for enabling us to serve you better.
