Virtual Academy “Remote Lab system for Analog Electronic Circuits – Session 1”
Oct 30, 2018 3:30 PM IST
Engineering education is all about “Do Engineering” rather than read and write. But in the conventional engineering education, most of courses are theory based and few laboratory courses students are unable to visualize the concepts. In Electronics engineering course “Do Engineering” is even more essential as most of the courses deal with circuits. The circuit concepts can be better conveyed by faculty and understood by doing experiments along with theory classes. Unfortunately, in the conventional engineering education, in most of the time there is no synchronization between the two. This is due to infrastructure limitations and time constraints. In the present laboratory courses, students get limited time to conduct experiments, they will be satisfied if they get output, students won’t think of various analysis that can be performed on the same circuit. As a solution to this, we have developed Remote Lab system using National Instruments product Analog Discovery to conduct Analog Electronic Circuits. Using which user can conduct experiments remotely. Using this remote lab system, 25+ experiments with 120+ variations can be conducted. This remote lab is designed in such that user feel like as though it’s being conducted in lab. Many analysis like, time response, Bode plots and spectrum can be performed.
In this webinar series, we Demonstrate how to use Remote Lab system developed at Department of Telecommunication Engineering, SIT, Tumakuru. It’s recommend that webinar participants to have installed with Team viewer 12 so that Experiments can be contacted remotely during webinar itself.

APICTIEE 2018 Webinar: “Methods to decrease time gaps in research transfer from faculty development programmes applied to Electronics and Tele-communication Engineering discipline”.

Engineers serving as faculty in Engineering discipline are taught technical skill and knowledge, but need aid building ability and motivation to permeate the knowledge transfer skills from the books to the undergraduate students and researchers that causes “Time Gaps” or delay in transfer skills of improving research based productivity. This application oriented skills can be taught through innovation to improve the skill set of newly joined faculty as teachers and research scholars. Engineering schools provide the training and research methods to incorporate the appropriate training for academic faculty by conducting faculty development programmes. However, to accomplish the purpose of producing competent teachers, researchers and leaders, faculty development programmes must be designed to foster transfer of training for research and development progress. For time saving, we propose some research oriented evaluation mechanisms for institutions that will motivate skill sets starting with available papers which are citation evaluation reviews in which essential contributors in terms of authors, journals and institutions, elaborately explain content analysis reviews with various sub topics within every evolving field in the engineering discipline. Improving knowledge base by opinions which pass into modifications within the technical discipline and research adopted. Methods addressed as part of this work involves decreasing the time gap as twelve tips which can be used for the empirical analysis and subsequent classification. At the end, we came to the conclusion that to motivate a faculty to apply and providing tools to aid recall and application have a significantly higher weightage for improving knowledge transfer gains.

APICTIEE 2018 Webinar: “Teaching and Learning Methodologies for Millennial Learners”.

This paper proposes effective methods of teaching strategies implementable to retain the attention span adaptable for different types of students during the class hours. Knowledge and wisdom could be acquired completely through basic understanding. However, active learning improves all such attributes, which is less effective in traditional learning and teaching methods. The attention span of students could be maintained consistently by involving the students in visual and sensory learning methods. This paper focuses mainly on improving the listening skills of slow learner by involving in multitasking activities. However active learning could be achieved by various brainstorming activities like think pair share, small group, large group, minutes write, concept tests, fishbowl, reciprocal peer questioning and presentations. Activity based teaching and learning methods are inculcated in very few colleges, however it would be a great success if it’s being included in our Indian curriculum in order to improvise our standards and develop our learning system by emphasizing on uniqueness, innovation, team spirit and pro-activeness. These features form the base to build their career and also dwell in their professional life to become effectual engineers. These active learning strategies have been practiced in the classrooms and the outcomes are being discussed.
