ISTE Teach 1000 Teachers Programme - 2011
IIT Bombay conducted a workshop in December 2011 for empowering teachers who teach engineering courses, the emphasis being on the basic courses such as Electronics, Thermodynamics, Computer Programming, etc. To engage 1,000 teachers at a time, SSE-PDPU was among a certain number of established colleges that were identified as Remote Centres, where the participating teachers assembled in groups of 30 to 70. Lectures were transmitted live from IIT Bombay. It permited video conferencing through interactive classroom teaching, making the lectures almost a live experience. Lab sessions and tutorials were conducted at each Remote Centre under the supervision of local Workshop Coordinators.
