CNIR Organising One Week FDP Program of Professional & Technical Programs

[12 October – 12 December 2020]
STEM impacts nation and national building. But it is also true that it is Social Sciences that provide deep insights into society- its functions, roles, problems, and maladies it faces. The direction and tonality of science and technology, the thrust areas which ought to be pursued are actually set by the social sciences. The deep analysis and communication of technologies can remain unreachable to grassroots and masses if social scientists do not provide these foundations, directions, and insights.

Had the agriculture extension workers not transferred these technologies from lab to land (farms), the innovations in agriculture and other fields undertaken by the scientists and engineers would not have reached our farmers. Further, the improvement in the technologies would not have occurred if the feedback had not come from these land or farms back to these laboratories. Societal welfare and progress are the hallmark of scientific development and discoveries.

Innovations and transfer of technologies do not occur in isolation. The socio-economic-demographic situations impact both their production and usage. It is important that technologies must have humans and societies at their core. Teachers are nation builders involved in the process of human-making. They have to be aware, enlightened and sensitive to the needs of their students, society and nation. In the training of teachers and faculty, capacity needs to be developed wherein along with being good academicians, researchers, innovators, they are also sensitive to various socio-economic-demographic issues and challenges.

The proposed Faculty Development Programme aims at providing exposure and development of some of the requisite knowledge, attitudes and skills related to social issues. Considering the ongoing pandemic COVID-19, it also focuses on the transaction of the newly acquired knowledge using the latest online technologies for teaching and assessments.

Keeping the above issues in mind, the following themes and issues would be taken up for the capacity building of teachers of professional and technical disciplines at the University.
