The Faculty Development Programme (FDP) is specially designed for teachers, researchers and trainers in HRD, training colleges and industrial organizations for their management education requirements. Since the first course offered in 1979, the programme has been continuously modified and re-structured to address new developmental needs of management educators. Every year hundreds of sponsored participants enhance their skills and update their pedagogical tools. They practice and share their new learning with thousands of students, slowly bringing about a major qualitative change in academics and practice.
Participants are provided an opportunity to refresh their knowledge related to management education and pedagogy with the latest academic practices in the field. Many participants develop insights into curriculum planning and academic administration.
FDP provides participants a unique opportunity for self-development with compulsory courses and specially designed workshops. The compulsory courses are designed to enhance teaching and research capabilities whereas exposure to elective courses aims at improving substantive knowledge in specific functional areas of management.
The major focus of the FDP is on upgrading the teaching, training and research skills of management teachers-especially those teachers who have not had an opportunity to acquaint themselves with recent developments in teaching and research methods. The programme enables participants to develop competence in general management education as well as in management research and pedagogy.
