Coordinators’ Workshop For FDP

This Workshop is conducted by Prof. Deepak B Phatak from July 8th, 2017 to July 8th, 2017

IIT Bombay has been involved with distance synchronous education, since year 2000. We have trained over 1,00,000 teachers, in partnership with IIT Kharagpur, under the T10KT (Train 10 Thousand Teachers at a time) project sponsored by NMEICT. All training workshops so far, were on specific subjects of Engineering and Science Education, most of which are taught as core courses in our colleges and universities. These programs have been beneficial to the participating faculty
