Our New Courses
Eight New Courses From IISc ENROLL NOW !
The National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL), a project funded by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) was first conceived in 1999 to pave the way for introducing multimedia and web technology to enhance learning of basic science and engineering concepts. Significant infrastructure has been set up earlier for production of video-based teaching material by the Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT) and Technical Teacher Training Institutes (TTTI). In the first phase of the NPTEL project (June 2003-June 2007), seven IITs and the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) have worked together to develop web and video based material for basic undergraduate science and engineering courses in order to enhance the reach and quality of technical education in the country.
Outcome Based Education
Good teachers want good learning to occur as a result of their teaching. Good learning means, besides recalling information, acquiring the ability of problem solving, and critical and creative thinking. Students learn well when
- they are provided information about the course outcomes (what the students should be able to do at the end of the course), their responsibilities, and the criteria used to evaluate their performance
- the assessment is in alignment with the stated outcomes
- instructional activities are designed and conducted to facilitate them to acquire the stated outcomes and they are actively engaged and challenged at the right level
A course in an engineering program in India needs to be designed and conducted to facilitate the students to meet the identified Course Outcomes to address a subset of Program Outcomes of NBA and Program Specific Outcomes identified by the Department. The three-day workshop aims at facilitating the participating faculty members to write Program Specific Outcomes, and Course Outcomes of identified courses.
