Faculty Development Program (FDP) Workshop on Use of MATLAB in Technical Education
Recently, RCERT in collaboration with TEQIP III RTU (ATU) sponsored and organized the Faculty Development Program to address the diverse aspects of Use of MATLAB in Technical Education so that student-centric effective learning and teaching can be promoted. About 150 teachers who are teaching different disciplines of science and engineering in various colleges registered and participated in the program. Dr. Anshu Surana Sir (Vice-Chairman, RCERT) inaugurated the program. The other honorable dignitaries that graced the occasion were Prof. S.N. Pandey (Professor Motilal Nehru NIT, Allahabad), Dr. V.P. Singh (Asst. Professor, MNIT), Dr. Pramod Sharma (Principal, RCERT) and Dr. A.N. Mishra (Asst. Professor and FDP Coordinator, RTU Kota).
The core objective of the FDP workshop was to discuss how the practical teaching methods can be successfully incorporated in the classroom teaching so the technical concepts can be taught effectively. This is important because engineering education involves the best combination of both theoretical and practical problem solving skills. Moreover, the real-world examples help students to understand in a better way how theoretical knowledge can be practically applied for reliable outcomes. In addition to this, a thorough demonstration was made of Data Analytics, Signal Processing and the control system models and how they can be effectively utilized for bridging the gap between the theoretical knowledge and the practical aspect of the concerned topic.
Furthermore, the diverse interactive models not only addresses the different types of learning requirements of the students but also enable them to participate in the discussion actively. But certain kinds of resources are required that can help teachers to incorporate MATLAB throughout the course. Furthermore, the faculty also explained some of the basic operations of the MATLAB. On the second day of the workshop, the honorable dignitaries emphasized the need for the utilization of the software in the classroom so that engineering education can be delivered in the best possible way.
The program ended with Vote of Thanks by Dr. A.N. Mishra and certificates and course material were distributed to all the teachers who participated in the FDP program including experts like Dr. Akhilesh Mathur (Asst. Professor, MNIT, Jaipur), Dr. Satish Sharma (Asst. Professor, MNIT, Jaipur), Dr. Ritu Sharma (Asst. Professor, Bhartiya Skill Development University, Jaipur), Dr. S.C. Pandey (Associate Professor, Banasthali Vidyapith) and Dr. Dheerendra Mishra (Associate Professor, Laxmi Niwas Mittal IIT, Jaipur). The two-day FDP workshop was successfully conducted and helped the faculty to understand how MATLAB can be an effective approach for students in solving a real-world problem thorough application of the theoretical concepts and knowledge.
