An important initiative has been taken by IIT Bombay to work with Engineering Colleges in the country, to enhance the teaching skills of our faculty colleagues in core Engineering and Science Subjects. Under this project called “Empowerment of Students & Teachers through Synchronous & Asynchronous Instruction,” IIT Bombay conducts two-week ISTE workshops during the vacation period in summer and winter. Live lectures are given by IIT faculty. The participating teachers attend at a remote center close to their own college, and also attend tutorial and lab sessions conducted in the same center. The lecture transmission and live interaction takes place through distance mode using the AVIEW technology and the internet, at selected remote centers across the country. This initiative is part of the National Mission on Education through ICT, supported by MHRD. Faculty coordinators are appointed at each remote center, to handle the technology infrastructure and other operational logistics. Additionally, for each workshop, there is a workshop faculty coordinator for that subject who will help in the conduct of labs and tutorials at that center.
