ACULTY DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME FDP on COMMUNICATION SKILLS FOR CHANGE MANAGEMENT IN CLASSROOMS"
There has been seen a vast gap between the teachers and students in our classrooms despite the best of efforts from both the sides. It is relevant then to stop and take a close look at what is wrong and needs mending. There should be a programme in Teaching Pedagogy to reorient teachers to meet this gap. The Programme should aim at enabling professionals to disseminate formal information effectively, understand the intricacies of communicating most clearly and comprehensibly in the chosen medium to provide an insight into effective teaching.
Businesses want graduates who will not only add value but also possess the skills that would transform their organizations in the face of continuous and rapid economic and technological changes. All graduates irrespective of their academic discipline need to be equipped with employability skills that cover a wide range of non-academic or softer skills and abilities which are of value at the workplaces. It includes the ability to communicate effectively in various professional contexts; work in a team; a willingness to demonstrate initiative and original thought; self discipline in starting and completing tasks in time. In short, today's employers expect the fresh graduates to possess the necessary skills to perform well in their organizations and it is to this end that universities play an important role. It is crucial that universities and employers work with students to provide proper signposting to ensure they are in a position to make informed decisions and to develop and realize their goals.
