Faculty members of engineering & management courses find their job quite challenging nowadays. They are expected to be active researchers and effective teachers as well. One can cover an extensive amount of course material in a day and deliver lectures after lectures, but if students do not follow the contents of lecture, whole exercise is sheer waste of time and energy. Being an effective teacher is not just about sharing knowledge; it is about making sure that learners truly grasp and integrate the knowledge delivered; and also learner are developing capacity to derive learning out of it. Any teaching that does not result in effective learning is useless. Therefore, faculty members need to be able to deliver the knowledge using the most suitable pedagogical tools to be effective teachers. Also, an effective teacher is expected to regularly keep himself/ herself at the frontiers of knowledge in his/her areas of subject expertise and gain working knowledge of current technological trends. Faculty members need also to keep engaged in research in his own areas of expertise as well as interdisciplinary subjects. This Faculty Development Programme (FDP) was aimed at honing the research & teaching skills of prospective, new and seasoned faculty members, researchers and trainers. Participants after attending this FDP should have: • became aware about research methodologies and got insights on writing good research proposals; • got basic understanding of qualitative and quantitative data analysis tools and techniques; • got motivated to identify inter-disciplinary areas of research; • understood the significance of the fundamental elements of effective teaching and learning; • got motivated to use pedagogical tools, techniques and case methods of teaching in appropriate learning contexts; • became aware of requisite preparations for the successful use of case based approach; • developed an attitude for teaching students keeping in view the job requirements in the industry so as to make them employable. • got an overview of the current technological trends and its applications Prof. K.K.
