In the new era of knowledge based economy, educational institutions are playing an increasingly important role in economic development at local, national and global levels. As the academic world becomes more and more sophisticated, there is need to move away from the chalk, talk and rote tradition. Teaching methods based on the ruts of cudgel and cramming are no longer effective in developing students’ talents – rather they inhibit their efforts and hurt their ego.
Indus Educational Network understands the need for professional development of its faculty. We take quality teaching seriously and are continuously engaged in devising means of improvement. We reward innovative teaching and encourage motivational education based on conceptual studies. We believe that the horizon of knowledge is infinite, height above and beyond, depth endless and strength has no match. Learning, seeking, and knowing are the ways to reach the nearest goal. The widest possible excess to learning can only come through excellence in teaching.
These institutions as a group also place considerable importance on academic research by creating a supporting environment, one that allows each faculty to pursue its academic interests, emphasizing the academic areas of strength in which the institute can gain a reputation for excellence. Indus Group has evolved a formal professional development program for its faculty members. This program provides ample opportunities of ongoing learning through guided and collaborative professional development activities. It provides teachers an exposure to various aspects of education under the supervision of experts and researchers. It ‘inherently’ ensures that teacher-learning gets transformed to classroom practices.
