Faculty Members are the intellectual resource of an Academic Institute. They have a significant role to play in shaping the career of young learners. Faculty Development Programme is the Institutional initiative for strengthening the professional development of Faculties. The emphasis is to help the Teacher Educators in increasing the effectiveness of teaching with skill based inputs. It is an opportunity for Faculty members to introspect on current knowledge and the essentials of effective teaching, learning, assessment and research. The Faculty Development Programme (FDP) hosts group workshops and individual consultations for the faculty to develop and share their experiences, explore creative pedagogic methods and resources for learning framework.

Today the profession of teaching has become quite challenging. Teacher Training Institute is expected to be both effective and research oriented. A teacher can teach all day long and cover an extensive amount of material, but if students do not assimilate and correlate the learned contents it leads to wastage and under utilization of human resources. Being an Educator is not just about sharing knowledge, it is about making sure that learners truly integrate the knowledge with objectives. Teaching without effective learning is not fruitful. For an effective teacher, one needs to possess the ability to deliver the domain knowledge with appropriate pedagogical tools. A dedicated teacher is also required to contribute to the frontiers of knowledge in his/her areas of subject expertise and gain working knowledge of other domains as Education is interdisciplinary in nature. For this, every teacher needs to continuously upgrade himself/herself by engaging in research and pedagogical knowledge. The Faculty Development Programme (FDP) is aimed at honing the teaching, classroom management, students support; adoption of new method and collaborative measures.
