IUCEE Virtual Academy
The IUCEE Virtual Academy, started in 2011, uses technology to enable engineering education experts to conduct live Webinars and MiniCourses on-line to faculty and students all over India.
The objective of the Virtual Academy is for experts around the work to offer insights into how to improve engineering education, using technology. Technology has its limitations compared with face-to-face workshops, but has the advantage that delivery is at much lower cost and can reach multiple users at different locations simulations.
More than 600 webinars on teaching, research and general education topics have been conducted. Each webinar is typically attended by an average of 30 participants across India. Participants interact quite well by asking questions through the chat feature, with the help of the IUCEE facilitator.
Several mini-courses have also been conducted on-line on various topics including Outcomes Based Education.
Typically 2 or 3 one-hour webinars are conducted every week on Tue, Wed or Thu at 3:30 pm IST, in order to suit the convenience of engineering faculty and students in India. Webinars are open to all. Please email Krishna Vedula at Krishna_Vedula@uml.edu to be added to our mailing list.
We are inviting anyone interested in offering a webinar to email Krishna Vedula along with a short bio and abstract of the proposed webinar. The webinar should be of relevance to engineering faculty in India. If the topic is considered appropriate, it will be scheduled and speaker will be given a short practice session on GoTo Meeting in order to ensure that webinar goes smoothly when scheduled.
Recordings of all the webinars are available to IUCEE Consortium members only.
Please email Virtual Academy Manager, Mr. Sridhar Nori at email@example.com for access to the You Tube recordings of archived webinars.
