The sessions at IIMV are designed to draw on peer-to-peer learning and activities, facilitated by subject-matter experts in the relevant areas. Pedagogy used will involve such tasks techniques as discussions, lectures, experiential exercises, case studies and self-assessment tools.

Envisaged Outcomes

Participants are expected to take away actionable ideas, inputs and insights in terms of superior teaching, research, and administrative practices, which would be immediately implementable in their respective institutions.

The Professional Development Training programs at IIM Visakhapatnam would enhance the capacities of the participants with structured inputs that are current with context and contemporary in content. They would equip them to emerge as efficient teachers, researchers, and administrators. The programs would thus expand the pipeline of competent academicians and capable administrators as a successful outcome of TEQIP-III.
