Faculty Development Program – FDP
India’s higher education sector seeks to achievesustainable development and higher growth rates, which could be made possible through information production, diffusion, and distribution. Higher education is experiencing a steady growth trend at all levels in the world, characterised by the creation of new institutions and the development of existing ones. The need for trained teachers and faculty members over the next few years would be significant and overly critical. India is one of the countries with the largest number of educational establishments in the world and, as a result, the highest number of faculty members and students. Over the past two decades, the exponential growth of institutions in India has led to a lack of upgraded and well-trained faculty members and has created a quality education challenge. In recent years, while many institutions have learned and implemented ICT learning methods, the same is not true for education. Increasing internationalisation of teaching is highly endorsed by the Indian education sector and is seen as crucial for Indian institutions to grow India’s science and innovation capability, enhance India’s institutional rankings, and increase the standard of teaching and learning.
