Instructional Design and Delivery Systems

14-18 March 2017, India
In-Country Program

| Program Focus |

Studies by NASSCOM (2005), Aspiring Minds Assessment Private Ltd (2014), and World Bank (2011) clearly indicated low acceptability of pass-outs from technical education systems. Technical knowledge and skills, as well as employability skills, have been found to be lacking among the students.

Quality of teaching, learning, and evaluation in technical institutions needs improvement in order to enable the graduates from these institutions to acquire the competencies expected of them to survive in the competitive world. Majority of the teachers working in these institutions lack formal exposure to pedagogy. Instruction planned and implemented in a systematic and structure manner guarantees attainment of course outcomes. Teacher require skills such as building explanations, elaboration, communication, questioning, feedback, motivating skills, integration of media in teaching, learning and evaluation for effective implementation of the planned instruction.
