Faculty Development Program

The Faculty Development Programme (FDP) at HIEE endeavors to contribute to the professional development skills of teachers currently working in Different institutions across India as well as abroad. We had an enthusiastic batch of participants, many of whom were highly experienced faculty members and professionals across Hyderabad. Teachers play a crucial role in training competent future managers in Core and non-core organizations.

To be effective, it is critical for Teachers to have

(i) An in-depth Technical knowledge

(ii) A practical understanding of necessary pedagogical techniques and research skills and

(iii) Awareness about latest research and industrial developments in their specialized area.

We welcome enthusiastic teachers who want to make a difference in technical education to participate in the programme. We also welcome bright researchers who have just completed or close to completing their PhDs aspiring for a teaching and research career in technical Education. The FDP is a rigorous 2-day residential programme that provides training on core principles, cutting-edge research methods and latest developments in specialized areas.

The programme will enable the participants to effectively use various pedagogical tools in their respective classrooms, and develop their own cases and other teaching/research materials. It offers opportunities to acquire in-depth knowledge as well as hone knowledge dissemination skills. In the programme, we use a mix of various learning settings such as classrooms, workshops and seminars. We largely follow a participatory approach to learning. Though there is a clear emphasis on the case method of teaching and learning, other educational approaches such as lectures, small group exercises, simulations, management games, and presentations are also widely used. Multimedia tools, computer based applications, advances statistical packages, and also industry visits; all complement these teaching and learning approaches. Participants will also get exposure of course design, curriculum planning and administration of academic activities.

The FDP demands a high level of individual and group effort from participants to draw maximum learning benefit. Usually, the participants take away more than just class-room related experiences as they enjoy the pristine greenery and inspiring environment of the HIEE campus, access to the vast library resources, and interact with bright students and faculty colleagues from diverse backgrounds. We make a conscious effort to stay in touch with our alumni and have gladly welcomed them to visit us and share with us their experiences. I am happy to note that many of our alumni have described FDP as a life-changing experience. We will continue to strive to make FDP a rewarding experience for management educators.
