All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) the statutory body and a national-level council for technical education, under Department of Higher Education, Ministry of Human Resource Development and NPTEL have signed an MOU on July 24, 2018 whereby advanced NPTEL online certification courses are approved for Faculty Development Programme (FDP) by AICTE.
(F. No. AICTE/RIFD/FDP Through MOOCs/2017-18)
The Conference Support for SWAYAM-NPTEL Local Chapter SPOCs was initiated to allow SPOCs to participate in academic conferences happening in India that will be both an intellectual exercise as well as a networking opportunity. Attending reputable technical conferences can substantially improve SPOCs’ professional activities as a teacher and some of the learning (both tangible and intangible) can then be transferred to other members in your parent institution. This will help in creating an enjoyable work environment where there will be a group vision to strive for continuous improvement, both in terms of processes as well as products.
Since SPOCs are an Ambassador of NPTEL activities in your college, we believe that you have already taken the first step for enhancing teaching-learning activities within your institution. We also strongly believe that the conference participation will provide much needed impetus to empower you further in achieving sustained improvements. And this is in alignment with the larger vision of NPTEL - Providing access to high quality learning for every learner.
